Marjolijn Dijkman, *1978, living and working in Brussels, Belgium
Marjolijn Dijkman’s practice is concerned with human systems and structures that aim to intervene, control, and ultimately master our surrounding environment. Interested in integrating concepts and methodologies specific to a broad range of disciplines, Dijkman’s work has engaged with topics including urbanism, ecology, anthropology, museology and futurology. The artist’s expansive approach attests to her ability to see the linkages between seemingly unrelated subjects. This view is articulated in the ethos behind Enough Room for Space (ERforS), an independent arts initiative founded by Dijkman and artist Maarten Vanden Eynde in 2005, which focuses on generating experimental research projects and exhibitions.
She had solo exhibitions at institutions like: West Space (Melbourne, AU); ICA (London, UK) ; IKON Gallery (Birmingham, UK); Berkely Art Museum (Berkely, US), West Space (Melbourne, AU). And participated in group exhibitions like: 21st Bienniale of Sydney (2018); 11th Shanghai Bienniale (2016), Mercosul Biennial (2009) and the 8th Sharjah Biennial (2007).
