Takeover #206 Catelijne Boele
#206 (16/05 - 20/05, 2022) written by Esther van Zoelen
What is the essence of a chair? To sit on, to look at, to just stand there, solely being itself. While a chair might seem concrete, for Catelijne these objects among other creations often come from inspiration that sometimes consists of memories, conversations, body language or even dreams. These things come to be inside of herself, a place where she often re-thinks, wonders about, or writes about. It becomes material. She describes her own work with the word ‘atmospheric’, meaning that the vague and volatile is nevertheless caught into different mediums.
