Maan Limburg a is a Dutch photographer from Utrecht, the Netherlands.
Her work stems from her wonder about the world and the lack of understanding it. One of her objectives is to create a world that shows how beautiful everything can be, and to make you reconsider what your world looks like. Through her visual explorations she will subtly show you reality is surreal. The photographs she takes are vividly subdued, a place where contradictions go hand in hand.
JACCU is supporting Maan Limburg and her artistic practice. Check out her new photobook The Lost World.
Last night Maan Limburg had the exhibition opening for the launching of her photobook The Lost World.
Did you know that 13.6% of Japanese buildings are abandoned? Maan Limburg came across a lot of these buildings on her travels, where there were still closets full of clothes, just ironed even though no one has been there in years. She photographed them and decided to put them together in a photo book and a multidisciplinary exhibition that inaugurated last night.
The art show is open to the public from Wednesday, May 18, and runs until July 4th, at the Pingpongclub Utrecht, visiting times are Wed – Sun, by appointment here.
With the precious help from crowdfunding, several foundations, Gemeente Utrecht, which is her home base, and her team, The Lost World was realised; a beautiful book of 176 pages with wonderful additions by best-selling author Liza Dalby and Japanologist J. Smit.
You can order the book on her website if you want, as easy as that! But you can also see and purchase it in our upcoming event 五感Gokan on the 4th June!
