Produced on the occasion of Joëlle Tuerlinckx’s exhibition Nothing for Eternity at Kunstmuseum Basel, 15 October, 2016 – 17 April, 2017.
Many of Tuerlinckx’s works originate in the artist’s gigantic archive. In addition to her own drawings, collages, photographs, and texts, it also contains objets trouvés, newspaper photographs, and the bric-a-brac of everyday life. Employing artistic approaches that Tuerlinckx, who was born in Brussels in 1958, describes in a dedicated “lexicon,” she alters the materials, dimensions, and appearance of these objects, transforming their reality and purport.
