No. 24 - Winter 2021/2022

Kleur maakt een comeback in dit dubbeldikke, tweetalige winternummer van See All This. Gastcurator, kunstenaar en activist Claudy Jongstra, brengt met dit nummer kleur terug in ons leven. Met de wol van haar Drentse heideschapen en de planten uit haar eigen botanische tuin creëert ze monumentale textielwerken die getuigen van de schoonheid en het belang van het kleurenpalet van de natuur. Dit nummer is gewijd aan kleur. Aan eindeloze kleurvelden. Met kunstenaars en auteurs die kleur over het hele spectrum vieren.
A new movement is emerging: Artivism. And Claudy Jongstra is one of its pioneers. Her latest work shows in its size and prestige that she is serious: Guernica de la Ecologia. A warning bell and a cry, but executed in soft, cuddly, hopeful and comforting wool.
What do you think of when we speak of colour fields? Fields of colour and fields of flowers? Here, they are imagined spaces belonging to nature, brought back to the centre of our field of vision.
