Wendelien van Oldenborgh – unset on-set
In her first solo exhibition in Japan, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, Dutch artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh exhibits six works, from the moving images for which she is most recognised to her recent pieces. The new artworks, created in Japan for the exhibition, employ texts primarily authored by female writers active in the 1920s–1940s that explore issues such as women’s social status, sexuality, and war. This catalogue offers a multifaceted reading of the artist’s work, interwoven with installation views and stills from video works. Designed by Akiko Wakabayashi, it shifts between the video stills and texts while examining the artist’s thought-provoking works.
