Solo Exhibition

Shifting Axis

27.10.2021–02.01.2022: Solo, Edith Russ Haus, Oldenburg, DE

Shifting Axis, Marjolijn Dijkman’s first large-scale solo exhibition in Germany, offers insight into the oeuvre of the Dutch artist, whose fascination with humankind’s hunger for knowledge and discovery has produced an exciting practice in which the paths of science, cultural history, and art converge.
Dijkman’s critical and poetic investigations use scientific tools to facilitate her projects meanwhile fuelled by the humble acknowledgment that the basic questions and interests of scientific research are not “neutral” or objective but rather rooted in our cultures and ideologies. Nearly all Dijkman’s works question the perspective of human vision, by seeking to look in completely different directions, scales, and ways.

LASER Talk: Au pied de mon arbre…

23.09.2021: LASER Talk, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, FR

“Some species are more attractive to us than others. Whether we like it or not, we have a hierarchy of living things. Until recently, animals took precedence over plants. Today, plants have reclaimed their place and are at the heart of countless scientific studies, artistic creations, discourses and theories. Some, however, are more desirable than others. The tree is one of these emblematic plants that we love. It is one of the main themes of this Rencontre LASER, part of the Roots & Seeds XXI European project. Biodiversity crisis and plant resistance, of which Leonardo/Olats is a partner.” (LASER Talk in French)
