Turning to Dust and Bones

Turning to Dust and Bones

Turning to Dust and Bones (April 2022 – April 2023) is a new series of six consecutive solo exhibitions loosely dealing with the subconscious, memory and the traces of being uprooted. It is featuring Anders Dickson, Koen Kloosterhuis, Kristina Sedlerova-Villanen, Aslan Goisum, Giulia Cenci and Rodrigo Hernández.  The visual identity was designed by Dongyoung Lee.

The public program is moderated by DIG – the Internet Guide of literature magazine De Gids, with editors Asha Karami, in charge of selecting contributors for additional texts and events, and Fabienne Rachmadiev, who is closely following the program in order to write the central essay for the series.

Asha Karami writes poetry, prose, plays and essays, and collaborates on poetry films with Johan van Dijke. Her debut Godface (De Bezige Bij, 2019), a poetry collection, received three nominations for poetry awards and the Dutch foundation for literature grant. She was writer in residence at the Jan van Eyck academy in 2020-21. She is currently conducting research into people and communities who live or try to live outside the social structures. In addition to writing, she works as a doctor in Amsterdam.

Fabienne Rachmadiev is a writer and researcher. She is currently pursuing a PhD on decolonial, environmental, and queer temporalities in contemporary art from Central Asia at the University of Amsterdam. She writes fiction, essays and art criticism for collected volumes and for publications such as De Gids, De Groene, Metropolis M, NRC, and Tijdschrift Kunstlicht. Her debut book of fiction will be published by the Dutch publisher DAS MAG.
