exhibition: 21 / 06 / 2018 - 16 / 09 / 2018
Location: TENT

TENT presents the first major solo exhibition by Esther Kokmeijer, which is all about water. With existing and new work, including an igloo of air conditioners and a salt chapel, Kokmeijer takes us into her observations about people and their natural environment.

Solid, Liquid en vapor stands for the three states that water can assume. The exhibition is versatile and shows how our planet functions as a closed system in which small changes in one place can also have an effect elsewhere - positive or negative. The butterflies fluttering in the exhibition are a poetic reference to this butterfly effect.
