Come by 1646 over the weekend of October 28, 29 and 30th, for a presentation of ‘Under Erasure’ by artist & filmmaker Sabine Groenewegen.
Sabine makes full use of the exhibition space of 1646 to share her ongoing research project, which was partly developed in the context of her 1646 residency early 2021.
The starting point of the project being a discovery of the unexplained removal of scenes from a 1930’s Dutch film set on a colonial rubber plantation in Sumatra. Sabine's investigation into the unexplained omission of a particular female character from the only distribution print of the film, opened up to larger questions around historical silences related to women and profit models within the system of rubber production in the early 20th century.
'Under Erasure' will open on Friday, October 28th at 19:00, with an artist talk by Sabine at 19:30. We’re also open for visits on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th, from 13:00 to 18:00. Entrance is free as always!
