It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the opening of the exhibition Nude - Arising From The Ground by
Mariken Wessels on Friday, March 13 from 5 - 7 PM. The exhibition will officially be opened by Benno Tempel,
director at Kunstmuseum Den Haag, at 18:00 in the presence of the artist. A new book, designed by Hans Gremmen, entitled Miss Cox (Nude - Arising from the Ground) will be launched during the opening.
Comprising of sculpture, photography and film, and inspired by a series of Eadweard Muybridge collotypes,
Wessels’ most recent work explores the motion of obese bodies and the animalistic aspects of the human form.
Nude - Arising From The Ground was partly premiered at Art Rotterdam 2019, but this exhibition aims to give
time and space for the entire work to be seen. In autumn 2020, the project will be part of a group show entitled Human After All: Ceramic Reflections in Contemporary Art at Museum Princessehof in Leeuwarden. Other participating artists are Geng Xue, William Cobbing, Klara Kristalova, Kris Lemsalu, Leiko Ikemura, Liliana Porter, Sharon Overmeieren, Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg. Curated by Tanya Rumpff.
