BACKGROUND EVENT HEDWIG HOUBEN NO.3
The third and last Background Event accompanying Hedwig Houbens solo show will be hosted by visual artist Brenda Tempelaar.
Instead of one single evening to discuss her work Houben has organized three different moments for which she invited three guests who are closely related and well acquainted with her work, to give guided tours, allowing them to give their points of view without any intervention on her part. The format of the guided tour corresponds to the work of Hedwig Houben, that is often informed by a performative practice and a subjective position.
Tempelaar was a student in some of the classes Houben taught at the academy in Breda. In her own work Tempelaar explores the axioms that underlie the making of exhibitions. With this professional background she will give her own personal view on the exhibition of Hedwig Houben.
