Marjolijn Dijkman (1978, NL) lives and works in Brussels (BE) & Saint-Mihiel (FR). Her practice is research-based and multi-disciplinary including film, photography, sculpture and installation. The works themselves can be seen as a form of speculative-fiction; partly based on facts and research but often brought into the realm of the imagination. Her work is concerned with residues of enlightenment ideology, manifestations of collective memory, blind spots of representation. Collaborations with other artists, thinkers and experts are an important part of her life and practice as an artist and have been a key motivation to co-found Enough Room for Space in 2005. Marjolijn Dijkman’s recent solo shows in 2021 include Electrify Everything, NOME, Berlin and Shifting Axis, Edith Russ Haus, Oldenburg, DE. “I strongly believe that the critical challenges that are at the core of On-Trade-Off can best be faced collectively and from a multitude of perspectives and artistic voices.”
