The exhibition The Elements explores the research undertaken by writer and artist Manon Uphoff (Utrecht, 1962) into the shaping of experiences that are difficult to reconcile with everyday life. Building on her novel Falling Is Like Flying (2019), Uphoff takes the next step in her search for images that are able to give shape to experiences of violence. Through drawings, a video installation and correspondence with guest curator Rosemarie Buikema, the viewer becomes a witness of and a participant in this quest. How can you destroy and create simultaneously?
