Satijn Panyigay, Inland

14 January — 25 Februar 2023

Satijn Panyigay photographs empty exhibition spaces in museums and their depots, as well as interiors of newly constructed homes and buildings undergoing renovation. During solitary, meditative explorations of the void rooms awaiting their use, images emerge that create a balance between light and darkness, serenity and gloom, resilience and vulnerability. "Inland" is Satijn Panyigay's first solo exhibition outside the Netherlands

„(…) time slows down and even seems to pause for a moment. A new space is created, a space of silence, tranquillity, where the viewer can let go. A space for contemplation. It is a personal experience, but at the same time, one with universal value.“ Cathy Jacob in her catalogue essay 

Satijn Panyigay (b. 1988 in Nijmegen, Netherlands) studied photography at the Utrecht School of Art, where she continues to live and work. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions in the Netherlands, including Depot Boijmans Van Beuningen (Rotterdam); Fotomuseum Den Haag; Museum Tot Zover (Amsterdam); Villa Mondriaan (Winterswijk). Her works are in the collections of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Museum Tot Zover, Museum Van Bommel Van Dam and Museum W., among others, as well as innumerous private collections.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with photographs by Satijn Panyigay and an essay by Cathy Jacob (English/German). We’ll be happy to reserve a signed copy for you.
