Femke van Dijk

Femke van Dijk is an autonomous artist who works from a certain concept but without a specific medium. Her ideas can result in for example a short video, sculpture, painting or installation. From themes like transformation, gravity, and melting she came to more autobiographic work where she works with themes like personal identity, music and trees.

At the exposition in Zuurdijk, photographs have been shown which are made in the little church of Zuurdijk. The photos are referring to both life at one side, and impermanence and death at the other. To stop for a moment and look for dreamy repetitive movements, is an element more often seen in the work of Femke van Dijk.

In collaboration with Erik de Jong (www.folkmuzikant.nl), a short video has been made especially for this exhibition. Erik was inspired by the photos and video and composed music for this work. In this piece he played various instruments like accordion, tin whistle, xylophone and kalimba. Femke van Dijk then edited the final video. This short video has also been shown at the Buitenbioscoop in Delden.
