SOLO 27

MARJOLIJN DIJKMAN

Marjolijn Dijkman (Groningen, 1978) makes video-installations, photographs and site-specific objects. Her work is focused on the question of how we as people relate to the world and the universe around us. In her practice, she explores scientific studies and analyses cultural norms, the spread of visuals in the mainstream, and the exploitation of natural resources.

Dijkman’s work takes a critical, activist position, but is given form in a strong, poetic visual language. She calls for modesty: embracing the unknown, accepting alternative systems of knowledge, and taking into account the invisible. Alongside new work, Dijkman is also showing a selection of works from the past fifteen years at Club Solo.

Together with Maarten Vanden Eynde, Marjolijn Dijkman runs the art initiative Enough Room for Space (Brussels).

S.M.A.K.

Johan De Wilde

Nina Canell

In response to Marjolijn Dijkman’s solo exhibition, S.M.A.K. will be showing two works: Pi (2007-work in progress) by Johan De Wilde and Perpetuum Mobile (25 kg)(2009-2014) by Nina Canell.

Pi is a key work in the oeuvre of Johan De Wilde (Zele, Belgium, 1964). It’s the first instalment of a “neverending” series of drawings based on the endless number pi. Each drawing is informed by a part of the infinite row of numbers behind the decimal point. His meticulous, labour-intensive methodology stands in sharp contrast to the rapid speed and fleetingness of our digital visual culture.

Nina Canell (Växjö, Sweden, 1979) combines material and immaterial substances in her dynamic, often evolving objects. She uses processes like heating, evaporation, electrical impulses, magnetism, and exposure to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. In Perpetuum Mobile (25 kg), inaudible sound waves condense the water in a dish into a vapour that precipitates onto cement, which evolves slowly but steadily.
