HISTORY RISING: MARJOLIJN DIJKMAN & JES FERNIE. {Title from cover.} Jonathan Watkins. Onomatopee, Eindhoven, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. with 124 ills. (112 col.). 29 x 22 cm. ISBN 9789491677304 In English.
Publisher's description: History Rising is a subversive and engaging study of museum display. By distancing museum objects from their support structures Dutch artist Marjolijn Dijkman and UK independent curator Jes Fernie critique the assumptions behind how things are positioned, who chooses to display them and how social, political and aesthetic choices dictate the language of display. Dijkman's interest in the plinths, shelves, bell jars and display stands in museums that contextualize the collections resulted in a series of sculptures -- a museum without artifacts -- in which display structures become utopian cityscapes, modernist sculptures, fungus-type growths and eroded plinths. Documentation of Dijkman's installations, two inserts showing photographs of books alongside the artist's photographs, essays by curators and an interview between Dijkman and Fernie explore an eclectic range of museum-related challenges concerning enclosure, artifice and the reinvention of history.
