Exhibition at PARK: Rewriting the Future

Discover art and time at "Rewriting the Future." Guest curator Niek Hendrix celebrates PARK's 10th anniversary with a unique exhibition. Be inspired by artists exploring the boundaries of time and imagination. Admission is free.

The exhibition

In the early 19th century, it was fashionable to place a ruin or cave in the garden. These fake ruins, made of chicken wire and concrete, reflected a nonexistent past. They raise the question: if our image of the past is an artificial construct, can we also rewrite our future?  

This is at the heart of the group exhibition "Rewriting the Future," curated by guest curator Niek Hendrix in honor of PARK's tenth anniversary. This presentation explores time as a concept and offers an alternative history of the former Goretti Chapel.

The creators

The story of Maria Goretti, patroness of young girls and of the victims of sexual assault and rape, is depicted in the work of Dario D'Aronco. Raised near the site of this legend, D'Aronco creates wall sculptures that at first glance appear to be made of bronze, but in reality are 3D printed assemblies of various objects.  

In the upstairs space, Anna Sandri has created a total installation. Small multimedia objects combine elements of statues of saints with modern techniques such as pixelated screens and glow-in-the-dark pedestals, creating a bridge between past and present.

Frederique Jonker presents an intuitive fusion of painting techniques from different eras. From primitive handprints to airbrush techniques, her work offers a visual journey through time and space.  

Maaike Kramer's artificial ruin embodies a similar intuitive approach. Her process from sketch to execution is visible in the work itself.  

Finally, Amrith de Zoete reveals the various layers of the chapel walls and thus the history of the building itself.
