MAARTJE FOLKERINGA
'SHOWROOM PREMIUM' 

OPENING SA 10 MARCH   -   20.00 / 22.00
10-03 till 08-04


With the installation Showroom Premium, at Zoete-Broodjes, Maartje Folkeringa shows ceramic works from the Premium series, made during a 2017 residency at sundaymorning@ekwc.

Starting point for Showroom Premiums is the joy Folkeringa derives from shop presentations, from a colossal plinth for a single handbag to a humble shelve sagging with the weight of countless smartphone cases. She can be equally inspired by a trashy nail salon window or by a luxurious department store with its emphasis on uniqueness and extravagance.

Folkeringa's work evolves from an exuberant but focused frame of reference. Visual and personal clues, a collection of images, anecdotes and impressions; eventually they all relate to important questions about how we present ourselves, the image we project, the pretences, appearances.

Maartje Folkeringa lives and works in Amsterdam. She graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (BA) in 2004 and the Sandberg Institute (MA) in 2006, both in Amsterdam. Recent shows include Museum Jan Cunen, Highlights of the collection, Oss | Kunstpodium T, Hapticomania, Apprentice Master, Tilburg | Maartje Folkeringa is generously supported by the Mondriaan Funds and the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts.
