»Famylje (2004-2010)«

Eva Gjaltema

The family of the Dutch photographer Eva Gjaltema comes from the Westerkwartier, a rural area on the border between the Dutch provinces of Groningen and Friesland, where they have been active for generations in agriculture and raising livestock. In 2004, shortly after the death of her father, Gjaltema began to record the lives of her grandparents, in order to preserve the family’s history, but also to show a way of life that was dying. Using various techniques and cameras, she expresses feelings of love, sorrow, anger and powerlessness. For this she draws on her own images, but also documents and photographs from the family archive and the new owners of the land. The result is a dialogue between generations, and an ode to a way of life symbolic of the whole countryside of the Northern Netherlands.

The installation ‚Famylje’ was nominated for the ‚Dutch Doc Award’ and exhibited at the Noorderlicht Photofestival in 2010. In 2015 the artist book ‚Famylje’ was part of the group show ‚Farming Folk’ in the Fotomuseum Den Haag. In ‚world in a room’ Gjaltema will show a new installation of the work for the first time in Germany.

Eva Gjaltema (*1979, Zwolle) completed her Bachelor of Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague in 2008, after finishing a Masters in Cultural Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Her final exam work ‚wrang’ was selected as ‚best of photography departments art academies Netherlands 2008’ from the Amsterdam Centre of Photography (ACF). She won the ‚Post Middendorp Stipendium’ to be able to create the work ‚Knoalster’, which was presented as a solo show in the Noorderlicht Photogallery. Her work has been shown in various international solo, duo and group shows. She is living and working in Berlin since 2012 and became a member of the Projectspace for Photography ‚exp12’ in 2016.
