Very proud to have been asked by Heidi Vandamme for a report in Yoga International magazine. Fantastic to be able to see myself in a row with artists such as Rob Birza, Berend Strik, Esther Tielemans, Louise te Poele, Nieke Koek and Carlien Oudes.
Heidi van Damme turns her focus to my invalid about the increasingly dependent independence of the digital world, artificial intelligence and the climate.
Under the title Pauline Nijenhuis, Conscious delay with needle and thread, it states, among other things, “In a society where speed is seen as (too) great an asset, she consciously seeks delay with her forbidden paintings, but also softness.”
Also discussed are the meditative element in my work, and my 'embodiment'.
Edition number 5, October/November 2023, page 38 to 42.

On the 2nd day of this conference, Pauline gave an artist talk about her new project: 'Password, a curse or a blessing?
She took her first steps in the world of weaving, which led to some special results.
In her speech, she took the visitor into her early experiences in the world of weaving: with the Jacquard weaving machine of Textiles Zentrum Haslach, where she made her first woven tapestries of her own design - 'Oops Mistake' and 'Digital Twins': Both in collaboration with Elisabeth Stötzler and Andreas Selzer (Textiles Zentrum Haslach).
Also woven in jacquard, is a thick tapestry (200 x 150 cm) entitled 'My future - to Pixealte'. She was able to realize this design thanks to the cooperation of EE Exclusive Label-Nederland in Heeze.
Finally, she highlighted her work in progress project 'My Firewall', a machine-embroidered tunic in collaboration with TextielLab Tilburg.
My Firewall is part of her research into our virtual life. With this work she shows how vulnerable we as humans are to all the online 'violence'.
Her presentation in Lódz was received very positively.
Remastered Art is a new art movement in which art from the past, paintings, photography, ceramics and textiles have been adapted by leading artists. By "remastering" an old painting or portrait, the life of this old piece is extended in an innovative and sustainable way. Old paintings, stored in the attic due to varying appreciation and change of taste, are given a second life as a result!
When: From March 18 to May 8
Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Saturday & Sunday 10 a.m. - 5 p.m

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.
