Katrein Breukers’s practice consists mostly of combining techniques and research of different materials, including ceramics, textile and daily objects. Some of her ornaments seem to take shape merely by chance. In her recent work she turned to elevating ‘crafts and decoration’, which historically have been associated with femininity and amateur hobbyists, to the status of fine art. These ‘camp’ ceramic roses are organically shaped around her sculptures. Breukers likes to think that one can read the thorny twigs like floriography. This ‘language of the flowers’ dates back to Victorian times, when it allowed people to express feelings that people otherwise felt they could not express.

The exhibition ‘Amazigh’ was the result of a study trip to Morocco. During the work period in the Fabriek in Eindhoven we explored the confusion of ignorance, and how to distinguish authenticity from touristic adaptation.
The large space invited us to explore new materials, creating our own landscape. We worked with all kinds of objects from Morocco and Eindhoven, and did not feel inhibited in my production or hindered by choice of materials. With the exhibition, we wanted to create a kind of touristic experience: constantly being invited to new perspectives, and, comparable to a pinball machine, bouncing back and forth between different interpretations.

Brother and sister Tim and Katrein Breukers give a tribute to the versatile musician Julian B. Coco (1924-2013). Coco was born in Curaçao and by playing music in many different styles linked traditional Western music with Latin American music. He also was the first musician ever to graduate from a Dutch conservatory with the guitar as his main subject. Visual artists Tim and Katrein Breukers however, know Julian Coco because he was a very good friend of their grandmother who studied at the conservatory with him and always remained good friends with him afterwards. In a playful manner the artists examine the legacy of Julian Coco and music as a connecting collective experience. The resulting installation represents both an imaginary as well as an actual meeting point in which the space, performance, sculpture and the public come together.

With this exhibition we published a Studio Note that can be downloaded here, or bought in our shop.
