Claudy Jongstra exclusively opens her archive for an exhibition in collaboration with art magazine See All This. Jongstra’s works go back two decades and offer a good overview of the artist’s extensive oeuvre. With samples and artworks made for various exhibitions around the world, this initiative is the way to get your hands on a unique artwork.
For one time only, leading up to International Women’s Day 2023, artist Claudy Jongstra will open her archive for a unique and festive exhibition. This exhibition will co-facilitate LOADS, the new extension of Studio Claudy Jongstra: an indispensable and dynamic place for educational and agricultural projects that encourage biodiversity and revive historical dye plants and craftsmanship.
About Claudy Jongstra
Claudy Jongstra creates monumental, tactile installations in shimmering colours. All materials used for her fabrics are locally sourced: the wool comes from Jongstra’s flock of Drentse heath sheep and the natural dyes come from the dye plants growing in the botanical garden surrounding the farm in the Frisian village of Húns. In her creative process, she reverts to centuries-old colour recipes and techniques. Her work is featured in the collections of museums such as the MoMA in New York, the V&A Museum in London and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
