Bradwolff Projects – Yasmijn Karhof and Merel Karhof
Until 24 January 2016 an exhibition of new work by Yasmijn Karhof and Merel Karhof is on display at Bradwolff Projects in Amsterdam. The title Blue Hour, refers to the blue colour of the sky, just before sunrise and after sunset. The artists consider this hour to be connected to the transition from waking to sleeping.
The work consists of a movie, a book and a plaid, that are strongly interconnected but also exist as autonomous objects. The film visualizes the consciousness while faling asleep. The woven plaid is a tool in the movie and melts together with the film characters. The book includes pictures that functioned as a source of inspiration for the design of the plaid and is also a film prop. Each element is shown in the exhibition.
The Mondriaan Fund contributed to the production of new work by Yasmijn and Merel Karhof via a Grant for Commissioning Contemporary Art (in Dutch: Bijdrage Opdrachtgeverschap).
