IMPRINTS – Elia Nurvista, Max Kisman, Sabine Groenewegen

What does it mean to live with the colonial past now? Wereldmuseum Amsterdam posed this question to artists Elia Nurvista, Max Kisman and Sabine Groenewegen. For the exhibition Imprints, which opens on February 8, 2024, they have been invited to reflect on the physical, ideological and psychological traces left by the Dutch rule of Indonesia. In their work, all three look critically at the impact of the colonial past on the present.

IMPRINTS

The artworks in this exhibition arise from long-term research practices and creative processes and have never been seen in this form before. The Wereldmuseum collection contributed to the creation of the works. These three artists put their own stamp on the theme and challenge visitors to gain new insights.

The three artists work with various media to investigate these 'imprints'. Nurvista investigates the impact of oil palm plantations, in layered and grand multimedia installations. Kisman, known for his recognizable graphic silhouette style, is interested in the psychological consequences of occupation, loyalty and self-determination. And Groenewegen analyzed colonial propaganda films, the stories they constructed, and the realities they concealed.
