‘Utwrydsk’ is a book by Dutch artist pietsjanke fokkema (1960). Its subject is genealogical research into the artist’s maternal line, and its contents are materials produced as part of a 2013 commission from Kie Ellens, curator of contemporary art at the Fries Museum in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. The resulting installation, which touches on the artist’s Frisian background and is also titled ‘Utwrydsk’, was exhibited at the museum at the end of 2017. In the book, fokkema has reorganised and rearranged her drawings in order to tell the story again, in a different way. She makes free use of images from culture and cultural history, images which she feels possess a living relevance.
