MC’s Mindgames — Grietje Schepers


Exhibition | Spatial | Material

A temporary exhibition full of experiences in The Hague

In the 125th year of Escher’s birth, new life is being breathed into the universe of Maurits Cornelis Escher. To this end, curator Mary Hessing of BinnenhofBuiten selected six young artists and designers to give shape to their visions: Teun Zwets, the duo Alissa + Nienke, Iris Toonen, Grietje Schepers, the duo Leon de Bruijne & Willem van Doorn and Berndnaut Smilde. The artists reflect on Escher’s work during MC’s Mindgames. Today we show Grietje Schepers.

MC’s Mindgames takes place at several monumental sites in the Museum Quarter that have specially opened their doors, including Huize Voorhout and Kazernestraat 23A.

Grietje Schepers – Sleeping Gold 2.0
Designers like Grietje Schepers, who studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, think conceptually. That attitude usually creates unusual solutions. These can sometimes take the form of functional products, but also frequently lean towards visual art. Grietje developed great sensitivity for transforming a small thought into a grand gesture. With a keen eye for material, colour and experiment, she creates monumental installations that almost overwhelm the visitor with strong colours and spatial effects. Sleeping Gold 2.0 seems to breathe and looks like a fictional natural phenomenon. Gretel exhibited previous variants at Zero Power Smart Fashion in New York and the Museum of Craft and Design San Francisco. Location: Lange Voorhout 78
