Judith Schepers / Regine Wolff – WATERPROEF

11 to 21 November 2021

Water is the central, binding element in this exhibition. In their works and in a space-filling joint installation, Regine Wolff (Osnabrück/painting) and Judith Schepers (Enschede/drawing) investigate the field of tension between water as a vital elixir and as a life-threatening force.

The artists use the term ‘Waterproef’ (water test) as a metaphor. In the first instance, one might think of an examination of water. But the word has another meaning. During the witch hunts, the ‘water test’ was used to unmask witches. The insidious thing about this test was the almost complete hopelessness of the person involved. Here, ‘watertest’ means a man-made dilemma.
In their work, Regine and Judith ask questions about the ‘water test’, the human dilemma of our present.

Opening: Thursday 11 November at 7PM

During the opening, the catalogue of the exhibition will be presented.
Sound artist Bert Fleißig will perform the sound performance ‘Wasserprobe’, which was specially developed for this exhibition.
Marlies van Grootel will give the opening speech.
