Nucleus - Noorderlicht Photo Festival NL 2017

2017

  • The 24th edition of the Noorderlicht 2017 International Photography Festival is about science and the representation of it by photographers and artists. Artists often ask themselves the same questions as scientists and share many of the same principles: originality, creativity and an open mind. In NUCLEUS (‘the core’) the two disciplines will enter into a dialogue with one another: science is a subject in the festival as well as a source of inspiration. The exhibitions revolve around the human urge to want to understand and control the world around us. NUCLEUS is about discovery and progress.
    Six pictures of Karin Borghouts’ series ‘Reliquiae’ are selected for the exhibition NUCLEUS. “For RELIQUIAE, Karin Borghouts photographed animal models, replicas, casts and specimens from different university collections. Borghouts was struck by the formal beauty of these bizarre remnants of deceased animals, which are transformed into objects of study. To take them out of their fixed context and do justice to their alienated beauty, Borghouts photographed the objects against pink, mint green and turquoise backgrounds. In doing so, Borghouts retains the remnants of an existence, and breathes life into them by awarding them the special status of artwork.”
    Several places in Groningen and Assen, NL. Karin’s work is exhibited in Der Aa-kerk Groningen.
