WENDELIEN VAN OLDENBORGH: AMATEUR. Ed. by Emily Pethick. The Showroom, London, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 396 pp. 22 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783956791918 Bilingual in English and Dutch.
Publisher's description: Amateur is the first comprehensive publication on Dutch experimental filmmaker and visual artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh's (b. 1962) moving-image works and their accompanying installations from 2005 through 2015. This handsome catalog gathers her works on communication and interaction between individuals in public locations to cast attention on repressed, incomplete and unresolved histories. Through the staging of these encounters, van Oldenborgh enabled multiple perspectives and voices to coexist, bringing to light political, social and cultural relationships. Thirteen essays by artists, curators and writers who have been key interlocutors with van Oldenborgh offer in-depth observations on her work, which is generously and imaginatively illustrated with project outtakes organized in flipbook-like pages inset chronologically between the texts. Contributors include Nana Adusei-Poku, Ricardo Basbaum, FreALdeALrique Bergholtz, Eric de Bruyn, Binna Choi, David Dibosa, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Avery F. Gordon, Tom Holert, Natasa Ilic, Charl Landvreugd, Sven Lutticken, Anna Manubens, Ruth Noack and Grant Watson Amateur is published in conjunction with the artist's being awarded the Heineken Prize for Art (2014).
