DE DOMIJNEN was created in January 2015. The museum contemporary art of De Domijnen is as of 4th September located in the new complex Ligne in Sittard-Geleen. This new architectural landmark consists of two buildings which houses Zuyd HS, residents of Daelzicht, the new library DeDomijnen in a joint venture with Zuyd HS, a cinema for art house films and the new museum. By joining forces we aim for a new culture experience. Our existing services go hand in hand with inspiring developments which provide plenty of incentives and challenges. Museum De Domijnen is a relative young museum for contemporary art and urban history and archaeology.
OBJECT LOVE reveals the intimate relations between humans and man made things.
Things are everywhere. Our bodies are on, in and between them. They are an extension of our bodies, and enhance our capacities. We are physically and emotionally connected with things. We touch, cherish and hate things. Things are much more then physical objects. They are made by people to meet our needs, practically, as well as emotionally. We make utensils and symbolic objects. We communicate with them, and project meanings on them. Our relation with things has changed. Through the development of technology and the democratisation of consumption the number of things has exploded, and things have become infinitely complex. We always want more, exhausting the earth through our Object Love. And the things we created ourselves threaten to outwit us. Artists: Melanie Bojano, Machiel Braaksma, Yvonne Dröge Wendel, Ni Haifeng, Ted Noten, Erwin Olaf, Hans Op de Beeck, Maria Roosen, Bas de Wit, Erwin Wurm among others. More info here.
On Thursday, the 5th of July at 13:00h, guest curator Anne Berk will give a guided tour through the exhibition Object Love. More info here.
