Hadassah Emmerich (1974) makes a new artistic statement with her exhibition CORPOREAL which includes a recent series of paintings, paperwork, installations and wall paintings combined with previous work from 2000 until now.
Hadassah Emmerich's artistic practice can be described as 'expanded painting'. Her installations consist of paintings, drawings, lino-cuts and wall paintings which all together form a colourful total work of art. This usually leads to a completely transformed museum space.
‘The exotic’ has repeatedly been the main theme of Hadassah’s art. Over the years, the artist has translated this into a sharp yet playful way. Her art compares the issues about exoticism, identity and women representation to her personality as a Dutch woman with Indonesian roots.
Hadassah Emmerich combines ‘the exotic’ with her interest in the human psyche and the ancient image of the body, which all can be viewed at the exhibition CORPOREAL.
