ABOUT THE WORK
‘Each place has a story’, Noordkamp says. ‘The buildings are the decor against which the people are playing their roles.’ The decor in this print is connected with the print Ball with leaf. The ball is actually placed near the building, the church La Chiesa Madre. The estranged character of the church is almost touchable. The image reflects an atmosphere of loneliness and melancholy. What has happened here? The joined story of the church, the tragic family history and the role of Noordkamp herself makes this image so intriguing, apart from its great design, simplicity and aesthetics.
Foam Editions offers this print since the exhibition of Petra Noordkamp’s La Madre at Foam in 2012.
