During the construction of the exhibition 'Tijdspinsels' in the Koppelkerk Bredevoort - photo Koppelkerk
The enthusiastic team of the Koppelkerk in Bredevoort shows the work of 6 renowned textile artists: Willy Doreleijers, Anke Land, Sonja Hillen, Astrid Polman and the artist duo Anneke Copier, Claudio Varone and Pauline Nijenhuis in the new exhibition 'Tijdspinsels'.
Which time breathe a textile artwork? Does it breathe the speed of the hectic times we live in? Or is it rather a silent resistance to the pace of fast, faster, fastest?
The theme fits in seamlessly with Pauline's work.
Let's hope that the exhibition can be festively opened soon, January 2022, and that everyone can enjoy the special and meticulous works.

At the invitation of Mobilia Gallery, Pauline is participating with 2 works in the exhibition "Domestic Disturbance". The exhibition takes place in the gallery of the same name in Cambridge (Boston, Massachusetts).
Her work was picked up by the gallery, following an article on www.textileartist.org about her project Hand@work.
In the honorable invitation, owners Jo Anne Cooper and Libby Cooper state: “If the HAND@WORK pieces are still available, we would love to include them in the exhibition. It would truly be a pleasure to have you display your outstanding textiles, highlighting your brilliant technical skills and vibrant work for this event.”
The participation of the renowned - innovative - artist Lia Cook, gave Pauline the incentive to say "yes".
For "Domestic Disturbance", pieces are brought together that show innovative use of textile techniques.
They cover a wide range of inspiring topics, social, political, and the beauty of nature and everyday life.
