Incubate: Hester Scheurwater

Hester Scheurwater doet iets met beeldmateriaal. Het is overwegend bewegend materiaal, maar ook foto’s worden door Hester gemaakt. Zij noemt het kunst, maar eigenlijk is het gewoon mislukte pornografie. Eerder zei ik al: “Een kut is nog geen kunst”, maar daar lijkt Hester Wijvenzeik, zoals ik haar liever noem, anders over te denken.

Gek eigenlijk dat zo iemand werkelijk gestudeerd heeft aan de kunstacademie. Kan me niet voorstellen dat ze daar ook lesgeven in ‘jezelf fotograferen in de spiegel’. Ga maar eens naar haar site, die staat daar vol mee. Gezien de foto’s denk ik dat Hester haar eigen scheur toch wel heel gaaf vindt, maar ik vind er geen kut aan!

Hopelijk zal ze op Incubate meer van haar ‘wildbeam’ acties vertonen en het liefst zo min mogelijk scheur, of nie!

  2. artist book SHOOTING BACK Hester Scheurwater | edited by Walter Keller

    Walter Keller: “Scheurwater’s work evolves in the tradition of the self-portrait in photography. Think for example of Robert Mapplethorpe’s sexually charged visual provocations or Francesca Woodman’s erotic mise-en-scène, to name only two artists. Scheurwater‘s visual self-explorations extend the boundaries of another main topic in art history and photography: the pose. But in her pictures model and artist are one. Yes, this is sexually explicit work, but even more it is a curious and smart research about herself, where the artist looks at herself from both sides of the mirror.”

    Zurich based Walter Keller is co-founder of Parkett Art Magazíne, Fotomuseum Winterthur/Switzerland, and Scalo Publishers (active until 2006). He is a curator, writer, gallerist and an internationally well-known specialist of contemporary photography. (Walter Keller published books from Karl Lagerfeld, Nan Goldin, Richard Prince, Boris Mikhailov, Helmut Newton and many more.)

    OBJECT OF DESIRE
    Controversial artist Hester Scheurwater releases a book of photography

    The photography, short films and video performances of Dutch artist Hester Scheurwater are often blocked on the Internet. The 39-year-old’s Self-obsessed iPhone series, which explores her desires, obsessions and fears sparked media hype in the Netherlands. The explicit imagery shocked many and fueled debate on the sexualization of society. But the editor of Scheurwater’s first book of photography, SHOOTING BACK, defends her work. Zurich-based curator, writer and contemporary photography specialist Walter Keller compares it to Rober Mapplethorpe’s sexually-charged imagery or Francesca Woodman’s erotic mise-en-scene.”Scheurwater’s visual self-explorations extend the boundaries of another main topic in art history and photography – the pose. But in her pictures, model and artist are one,” says Keller. “Yes, this is sexually explicit work, but even more, it is a curious and smart research about herself, where the artist looks at herself from both sides of the mirror.”
