Article in HART Magazine about This being human is a guest house

Schoonheid in tijden van crisis (NL), S. Crabbé
'Van tekeningen, schilderijen en drogenaald prenten tot met de hand geverfd textiel, video en glassculpturen. Hier dus geen grote concepten, maar wel een aftasting van een gevoelige, innerlijke leefwereld. De creaties lijken wel te wonen in de ruimte, als een soort thuis. Geslaagd is de collectieve installatie, namelijk de doordachte combinatie van verschillende artistieke uitingen."

Portrait of a Banker?

solo exhibition
25/04/2019 - 06/06/2019
opening 25/04/2019 16-17:30 h.
De Nederlandsche Bank, Amsterdam NL

In Portrait of a Banker? Aukje Koks shows her most recent works, including glass sculptures, drawings and paintings. Fascinated by daily normality, Aukje Koks questions the things around her. Influenced by the thoughts and impressions of the moment, things can always seem different than they are. In an attempt to detach herself from the material object, Koks previously tried, among other things, to detach the object from the surface, to create transparency, to address fragility and fragmentation, to portray ghostly appearances and to illustrate the illusion of movement. Currently she suspects the work is moving towards the portrait - possibly of a power-bearing or materialistic figure - and lets the intuition guide her. Koks questions the personal or collective ownership of her ideas, just as one may or may not appropriate things and events in a dream. In the exhibition at De Nederlandsche Bank, the object is about to change into a subject.
