Meta Joanknecht and Mark Verbrugge
Countries: New Guinea and the Netherlands
Meta Joanknecht works with traces of human presence. She finds abandoned and lost things that tell stories about former owners. The used objects and their fragments tell about everyday life and about the history of the place where they were found. Meta collects and arranges these objects as a plan-scheme of what surrounds her.
Mark Verbrugge is a self-taught videographer, he was educated in the audiovisual sphere in Media Park (Hilversum, Denmark). Mark sees stories that are impossible to tell with the plot. He works as an editor, but as an artist is far from editing, he refers to the camera as a way to feel and think. Mark is looking for ways to share a personal impression with other people. Find out how the experiences and feelings of different people are interrelated, what is common in our perception. He is trying to form a language in which you can transfer your personal experience to another.
