Water in Photography Rising Waters by Marnix Goossens

Water in PhotographyNovember 29 – March 1, 2009

Document Nederland: Rising Waters Marnix Goossens photographs Dutch ways to keep it dry. This year Marnix Goossens has been granted the distinguished documentary assignment Document Nederland by the Rijksmuseum and NRC Handelsblad. He portrays the tendency of the Dutch to keep on seeking new relationships with ever-rising water. Goossens, who has acquired a reputation for his poetic and humorous way of working, has aimed his camera at earthly problems caused by climate change and arising sea level.

Water in PhotographyAs a counterpart and supplement to this exhibition, Huis Marseille's own program will also revolve around the theme of water. A small retrospective of water-related photography from the past has been compiled from the Rijksmuseum's rich photo collections. In contrast to this 'engineer's outlook', another presentation provides a contemporary view of water as a phenomenon and source of inspiration, with photographs by Balthasar Burkhard, Naoya Hatakeyama, Roni Horn, Asako Narahashi and Syoin Kajii.
