FOAM Amsterdam features Awoiska van der Molen’s landscape photography in “Blanco”. On view until April 3, 2016.
FOAM starts the new year with “Blanco”, the first major museum-based solo exhibition by Awoiska van der Molen (b. Groningen, 1972), featuring the monochrome landscape photography she has been working on since 2009.
The exhibition “Blanco” is the result of long periods of isolation, in which Awoiska van der Molen penetrates deep into the essence of the remote world in which she creates her photos. Far removed from a society racing ever onwards, she takes time to experience the landscape in a new manner, beyond first appearances. She moves slowly there, returns repeatedly and by doing so makes these unknown places her own.
This gradual and solitary working process continues in the darkroom. Her often profoundly black baryta prints contain mysterious contrasts between darkness and light. Notions of time, day and night seem non-existent. FOAM shows a broad selection of her handmade gelatin silver prints, mostly in large format.
