Wave of Breath – Margot Berkman Exhibition
8 June, 2022 - 19 June, 2022
Wave of Breath invites you inside the world of inspiration behind the artist Margot Berkman, known for her sculpture installation ‘Whispering Seaweed’ on Amstelveen’s Keizer Karel square. A wave of works in different media, ranging from sketch and drawing to textiles, including two larger installations.
In the beginning there is the sea.
One day there is a first wave that sets everything in motion.
The algae take shape and wave with the water.
At times they oppose the waves.
From one form comes a new form, and another.
A diversity of forms emerges.
The sea begins to breathe for us and we breathe with the sea.
This is the world that inspires and nurtures Margot Berkman.
In Wave she takes us underwater, to a world both familiar and strange.
Like the sea her work displays reflection upon reflection: in sculptures, in drawings, in ink, paint, bronze and fabric.
For the wave brings deeper layers to the surface. Layers that can be only briefly exposed to sunlight and can only be held fast in another form.
And then the wave plunges down, and the making begins again.
A unique part of this particular installation is the soundscape, especially created for this occasion by the New York Grammy Award winning musician Will Calhoun (Living Colour).
