Kim Habers’ new work, inspired by the ecological disaster in the Amazon region, can be seen from February 2021 in the Princessehof in Leeuwarden.
Visitors can view an exhibition of works by Kim Habers (Ommen, 1979) in the Princessehof from 13 February to 5 September 2021. Habers usually works with paper, but is developing a new installation with porcelain and light for her solo exhibition in the National Museum of Ceramics in Leeuwarden. The work, made in the European Ceramic Work Centre (Sundaymorning@ekwc), revolves around the complex ecological abuses in Brazil.
Habers’ installation in the Princessehof is inspired by events in the Amazon region. The catastrophic forest fires, large-scale industrial deforestation and the exhaustive mining of raw materials are having an enormous ecological impact on Brazil. The culture and even the existence of the indigenous population are also endangered. The blackened porcelain in Habers’ installation combined with flickering light represents the burning Amazon. Habers hopes that the overwhelming size and intricacy of the work will give viewers food for thought.
