Julidans - Out Of This World

In 2023, writer and visual artist Sytske van Koeveringe had a residency in the Van Doesburg House in Paris. Although she stayed there to write her book, a deep desire arose to paint a large canvas that absorbs you in colour and movement. During Julidans she will present the outcome in the exhibition space The Bookshop in ITA.

Colour, movement and surface

In Paris, Van Koeveringe discovered the work of the painter Robert Delaunay, in particular his painting Rythme N1. She was drawn in by the amount of colour, the movement and the immense surface area. The large work gave her the confidence that she can and may do anything.

'So when I walked out of the museum, I knew: I want this too. I wanted a large canvas into which I could disappear. I wanted colour – always lots of colours. I wanted movement, both in what is visible and in the canvas itself. I wanted, I wanted, I wanted so much, but during all the hours I put into painting, I realized that this work represents something bigger.

For me, Out Of This World stands for the fact that one cannot exist without the other, that you are always connected to everything. The only question is how you relate to everything that unfolds before you every day. Do you run from what is going on or do you jump into the middle of it? And who have you gathered around you to sway with you? Do you share enough with the other person – are you honest? – or do you close yourself off to paint a canvas of five by five meters? To then come up with a new idea, a new attempt to capture all that life in a way...'
