In Two Minds / Gwenneth Boelens, Nickel van Duijvenboden
Roma Publication 216
In Two Minds documents Gwenneth Boelens’ practice of the past ten years, comprising photography and sculpture, as well as performative and filmic works. An extensive chapter of notes, written by her partner and editor Nickel van Duijvenboden, illuminates Boelens’ work and evolving attitudes from an intimate and studious perspective. Conversations and reflections are punctuated by a rich vein of illustrations and process images, as well as citations from twentieth-century literature and philosophy, such as by Bergson, Valéry, Merleau-Ponty and Woolf. A sense of searching pervades the publication, visually as well as intellectually, resulting in a meditation on experience, thought, memory and process.
