2012: Nabeeld (Afterimage)



For Amie Dicke’s first museum exhibition in 2012, the artist was inspired by the venue, the GEM museum of contemporary art in The Hague, in particular by the fact that HP Berlage’s original architectural masterpiece here had been nearly destroyed during the Second World War, just five years after it opened. Elements such as the damp stains on the museum's wartime ceiling (seen in archive photography) and the pond outside the building found their way into Dicke’s The Battle of Magenta, a large installation featuring a black-edged pool of water and photographic prints whose ink slowly releases, blending and bleeding.
