Daniëlle van Ark – Artist Proof
20 April – 10 June 2018
How does a work of art acquire value and meaning? What are the processes at play? And what is the artist’s role in all of this? These are the recurrent themes in the oeuvre of Daniëlle van Ark. Her solo exhibition at Foam raises questions about value and authenticity, particularly in the field of photography: the reproducible medium par excellence. In addition to Van Ark’s most recent works, the exhibition includes a site-specific installation that was developed specifically for the Foam gallery space. In it, the artist reflects on the museum context in which her work is displayed – or kept from view.
