Exhibition at Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn, Netherlands
December 16 - 17 - 18, 2016
‘Mattering Matter’ is an exhibition initiated by Liza Prins and Tjitske Oosterholt. The idea for the exhibition arose from a strong desire to shine a light on the importance of material in the practice of artists. Often, an explanatory text is expected next to art works, but we are convinced that a more intuitive and non linguistic understanding of the work should get renewed attention. Such a nonverbal interaction with material is important in the relation between the work and the maker as well as in the relation between the work and a spectator.

In addition to the exhibition, a publication with interviews with the participating artists has been made. A digital version of this publication can be found here.
