Wendelien van Oldenborgh

wendelien-van-oldenborghBL-WebWendelien van Oldenborgh develops works, whereby the cinematic format is used as a methodology for production and as the basic language for various forms of presentation. She often uses the format of a public film shoot, collaborating with participants in different scenarios, to co-produce a script and orientate the work towards its final outcome. With these works, which look at the structures that form and hinder us, she participated in various large biennials, and in smaller dedicated shows. Recent presentation include La Javanaise in the 12th Biennial of Cuena (EC) (2014) Après la reprise, la prise in ‘Art Turning Left’, Tate Liverpool (2013); Cinema Bete & Deise in ‘Dear Art’ by What How and for Whom, Calvert 22, London (2013); Supposing I love you. And you also love me (2011) in ‘Speech Matters’, Danish Pavilion, Venice Biennial 2011. Van Oldenborgh has exhibited widely including in Transit Display Prague (CZ), RAW Material Company Dakar (SN) van Abbemuseum Eindhoven (NL), Muhka Antwerp (B), Generali Foundation Vienna and Museum Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz (PL) as well as the 4rth Moscow Biennial 2011, the 29e Bienal de Sao Paulo 2010 and at the 11th Istanbul Biennial 2009.

Wendelien van Oldenborgh has been awarded the 2014 Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art.

The second workshop took place in collaboration with DAI and Vivsra Bharati staff and students and involved an extended research visit to historical sites of Tagore’s life and work in Kolkata, engagement with the contemporary legacy of his learning community at Santiniketan, detailed investigation of the works made by artists for the Santiniketan campus both during and after Tagore’s life as well as time learning about the Santhal community whose livelihoods and culture are bound into the Santiniketan and Sriniketan environment.

We spent most of our time walking and listening to the knowledge of those members of the research group based at Santiniketan, Kolkata and New Delhi, and their colleagues. Members of the research group ate together and discussed questions and ideas every evening. On the last evening in Santiniketan we had a summary discussion.
