Roos Quakernaat examines the common language of everyday objects, the space they occupy, and the movements they yield. She provokes light-hearted associations by bringing together her own photographs and elements of found footage. There is an aspect of fun but also a slightly morbid atmosphere and a critical stance, where she points to 1950’s housewife calisthenics as a metaphor for restriction and subordination.
Roos Quakernaat’s artwork mostly works with the theme of the ‘vernacular’ of everyday objects, the space they occupy, the movements they engender; her works refer to a system of restriction and subordination. Quakernaat adresses themes such as the functioning of dysfunctional people in society, and the absurdity of certain social habits.
A Proper Dish is an installation of 18 posters, all with different kinds of compositions. During this Art Fair 2016, part of the series will be shown at S1 Gallery.
