‘I live in The Netherlands, a country which does not know a natural echo. The voice disappears in the distance, the landscape swallows it. I hear water, wind. After a while I stop shouting. I gradually forget my own voice. And suddenly I found it again, the echo, in the Swiss village Wald. Who is the owner of this voice? Where does it come from? What does it tell me and why am I touched by it? ‘ (Barbara Philipp)
Barbara Philipp (*1977 in Graz,Austria) is a visual artist, working in the Netherlands and in Austria. Through the human body she explores the relationship of different formal and contextual languages. The artistic translation is located between words, images and the imagination. She studied in Vienna, Paris and Frankfurt and holds an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute (DAI).
This is the eight edition in a series of events presenting emerging European and international artists, living and working in The Netherlands. Our mission is to communicate and to ignite a new dialogue from the artist’s perspective.
