Patricia Kaersenhout’s solo at De Appel, Amsterdam is opening 4 October and running till 1 December.
Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner Too? is a solo exhibition as a social monument—created by artist and activist Patricia Kaersenhout and guest curated by Vivian Ziherl. The exhibition will launch an extensive new installation of over fifty sculptural glass vessels, produced by Kaersenhout together with The National Glass Museum in Leerdam. Inspired by a notion of ‘dining with the dead’, these glass works honour the lives and struggles of women of colour throughout history and mythology, naming and narrating the lives of thirty-eight ‘heroines of resistance’.
This work-in-progress was conceived earlier in 2017 for the Amsterdam cultural space WOW. For this early version click here to find documentation on our website.
