Marnix Goossens - Yonder
19 July – 6 October 2013

This summer Foam presents a series of new work by Marnix Goossens (b. Leeuwarden, 1967). In the exhibition Yonder. Goossens concentrates on surrogate nature in slightly run-down interiors, showing man’s secret yearnings for exotic destinations and snow-covered mountains in the form of palm-print wallpaper and decorative posters. Nature is a constant source of inspiration for Goossens, yet he makes no use of spectacular panoramic views or untouched wildernesses. Instead he uses tiles with plant motifs, wood grain plastic self-adhesive film and flowery wallpaper as a means of escaping the claustrophobic interior of the house. Photographs showing strange corners and reproductions are interspersed with photographs of windows through which light comes streaming in, also bringing a suggestion of the lightness of our being.
