portrait 03
marjolein landman

Wandering through urban landscapes, from New York to Tokyo, from Hong Kong to Tilburg, Marjolein Landman searches for the beauty of decay and destruction. Bright colours, the sparkles that reflect or the darkness of oil and tar residues. Moreover, she is fascinated by the dynamic spaces between the buildings that rise, where human life manifests itself in many ways.

Dwalend door stedelijke landschappen, van New York tot Tokio, van Hongkong tot Tilburg, speurt Marjolein Landman naar de schoonheid van verval en destructie. Felle kleuren, de schitteringen die weerspiegelen of de duisternis van olie- en teerresten. Daarenboven wordt ze gefascineerd door de dynamische ruimten tussen de bouwwerken die oprijzen, waar het menselijke leven zich op vele manieren manifesteert.
