Joanneke Meester

Meester gives colour, form and content to her life by seeking depth and understanding within herself. This inner growth is strongly perceptible in her recent text-based works, which show a progressively self-reflective irony in their representation of art and the methods of creating it. It is an approach recognizable in much of the conceptual art. In her 2009 piece ‘Tate Modern Here I Come: Imagination is more important than knowledge: Einstein’, Meester plays with the position of the contemporary modern artist with a wink and a nod. The title of this significant work refers to the desire for recognition and position within art discourse that every artist seeks. The title itself is cut out of different materials, and the clippings are used in the body of the collage. This interaction between the playful compositional image and the explicit name creates an irresistible tension.
