Women in Photography 2019 | Artist Talk: Mathilde ter Heijne
ARTIST TALK: MATHILDE TER HEIJNE
Sat, 12 Oct 2019, 330pm to 430pm
Objectifs' fifth edition of Women in Film and Photography seeks to explore how rage against discrimination, repression, inequality and injustice can be channeled into a force for awareness, action and change through art.
The women image-makers featured in this programme have created works that speak to local and international concerns, disrupting hegemonic narratives by surfacing stories of marginalised communities and invisible figures of history. Through these works, the programme aims to celebrate, enrich and underline the necessity of diverse voices and representation.
Join us for an artist talk with MATHILDE TER HEIJNE, one of the photographers who will be featured in the WOMEN IN PHOTOGRAPHY 2019 EXHIBITION. Mathilde will talk about her series, Woman to go, and also her earlier projects, which have been widely shown in internationally.
About Mathilde ter Heijne
Mathilde ter Heijne’s research based practice is founded in intersectional feminism. She acts as interlocutor within a social system of contemporary and past voices. She explores the role of women in forming cultural identity and re-inscribes the interrelationships between economy, spirituality, politics, and gender relations of societies now and in the past, differing to that of the current patriarchal system. Her installations, performances, films and videos draw on historical material, from archives, reconstructed archaeological artefacts, and ethnographic studies of ritual to resurface these old knowledges and identities, forgotten and ignored voices, to set iterations of these narratives circulating once again.
Her work has been widely shown, for instance at Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá, National Gallery of Modern Art, Mumbai, Singapore Art Museum, 4th Mediation Biennial, Poznan, ICA Sofia, Museum of Modern Art Arnehm, Shanghai Biennial, MoMA PS1, Kunsthalle Nürnberg, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin. She made the following institutional solo shows: Ongoing, Grassimuseum (2019), Blood, Sweat and Tears, Communal Gallery, Körnerpark, Berlin, It Will Be!, Kunstverein Haus am Lützow Platz, Berlin (both 2016), Performing Change, Museum für Neue Kunst Freiburg, Germany (2014), Any Day Now, Lentos Museum, Linz, Austria (2011), Long Live Matriarchy!, Stedelijk Museum Bureau, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2010), Woman To Go, Berlinische Galerie, Berlin, Germany (2006), BASE 103, Goetz Collection, Munich, Germany (2005), Tragedy, MIGROS museum of Gegenwartskunst, Zürich, Switzerland (2002)
