A Firefly Sits on an Electric Fence Reflecting on Light
• EXHIBITION | A Firefly Sits on an Electric Fence Reflecting on Light by Danielle Hoogendoorn & Jonathan van Doornum • Curated by Rawad Baaklini & Tiiu Meiner 30 October - 21 November Duo Exhibition A group of remarkable characters gather amongst peculiar contortions as the worlds of Jonathan van Doornum and Danielle Hoogendorn collide. An extraordinary trilogy is woven through three rooms as Hoogendoorn’s animals and van Doornum’s sharp compositions invite the audience to part-take in a contemporary allegory. Depicted through animal portraits, dramatic quilts and ceramic farm animal heads, Hoogendoorn captures striking sceneries of fable-like creatures alluding to a greater plot. These playful scenes are juxtaposed with the polished poetics of van Doornum’s installations. Metal and nature harmonise to reveal relatable myths that occur as mere consequences of existing. His antennas catch the essence of the future, past and present, and present them to us as plots to absorb.
