‘green as an interior’
Marijke Breuers collects atmosphere.
In recent years, during working periods in beautiful abandoned, sometimes fully furnished houses in Hungary and Portugal, she found interesting material. In the Netherlands, she meticulously scanned a recently abandoned monastery with accompanying garden. Landhuis Amelisweerd with wallpaper and surrounding landscape park, the Refectiekamer and the houses of the Foundation of Maria van Pallaes in Utrecht inspired her.
Spaces and atmosphere are almost always the starting point for her work.
She also approaches the garden as a spherical space.
The large stretched wall hangings with acrylic and cotton threads, paint and laminated photo parts have exceptionally coarse stitches. You can disappear into an imaginary greenhouse full of greenery.
