An exhibition of work by jewellery designer Marjo van den Bekerom
An exhibition of work by Marjo van den Bekerom is on display in the foyer of the Remonstrant Church from 11 January through 28 March.
Historical churches and brooches
Towers, churches, factories, houses, streets and the clouds above them are recurrent subjects in the work of jewellery designer Marjo van den Bekerom. Sometimes abstract but usually representational. She works mainly with copper and silver. The copper is oxidized with flames and chemicals. This exhibition showcases her historical churches and brooches. She has given all her churches a feminine accent: a statement about the church as a bulwark of male dominance. Also on display are some towers from her series of ‘towers with boxes’.
