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’.

Photographs Churches Calendar 2016

Next to Marjo van Bekerom’s work the prizewinning photographs taken for the 2016 Stichting Oude Groninger Kerken calender are also on display, as well as bits of ancient history: fragments of a fresco and remnants of an age-old statue that were once part of a church

Open during office hours from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
