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).
