Marjo van den Boomen

With arms Wide Open

2007 Sep 20 - 2007 Nov 10

(ENGLISH)
There is a scratching sarcasm to Marjo van den Boomen’s critical view on parenthood. Determined to usher the extreme further into the extreme, she explores the limits of the acceptable. With this confronting series that focusses on social issues like child soldiers or adoptional grief the photographer visualizes a frighteningly possible future.

After the succesful ‘With Arms Wide Open…’, this new exhibition by Van Den Boomen deepens the same disturbing subjects: comment on a materialist society that reduces children to the 
latest cunsumptional product.

(NEDERLANDS)
Er steekt sarcasme in Marjo van den Boomen’s kritische blik op het ouderschap. Vastberaden trekt ze het extreme in het extreme en verkent zo de grensgebieden van het toelaatbare. In een confronterende serie worden maatschappelijke thema’s zoals kindsoldaten en adoptieleed uitgelicht en verbeeldt de fotografe 
een mogelijke toekomst.

Na het succesvolle ‘With Arms Wide Open…’ is de nieuwe tentoonstelling van Van Den Boomen een verdieping van dezelfde thema’s: kritiek op een materialistische maatschappij die kinderen reduceert tot het nieuwe consumptiegoed.
