    Melle de Boer: “In contrast to painting, where I react intuitively to what happens on the canvas, the results of a screen print are known in advance. The final image is largely predetermined. With Julian Sirre, who has everything know about screen printing, I look for the unexpected in screen printing. On the spot I look for shapes and decide where they end up. No series. No lay-up cardboard. Every print is different. During this search, a way arises automatically. To achieve a result. Initially I mimic the process of painting and thus use the advantages of screen printing. No print is the same. “

    Flexible transparent walls hang in the space of the Grafische Werkplaats. They vibrate the space with every light movement of air. From an investigation into light, transparency and movement, Henia Eizenberg creates an installation in the silkscreen room of the workshop.

    Henia Eizenberg (Israel 1949) studied textile design at the KABK in The Hague. Since her graduation in 1981 she has lived and worked in the Netherlands. Under the supervision of the manager Annika Syramaki screen prints her photos in large format on thin cheesecloth. These cloths form the basis of the installation.
