Fleur van Dodewaard: The Fold
The Fold comprises ten years of practice reshaped according to the principles of book-production methods: folding, cutting and binding. Operating like a making-of, the publication displays its structural mechanisms, revealing its artistic premises and systems of construction.
With elementary materials – wood, paper, clay, tape, paint – Fleur van Dodewaard creates temporary compositions that play with the possibilities of photography, sculpture, and painting. Situated at the intersection of these disciplines, her work uses photography as the final result. Questions relating to the art object, discourses about the creative process and image making, and art historical references are fundamental to her investigations. They provide the terms of an ongoing tumbling and cross- relating of old and new images, objects, ideas, and forms.
