Details

Aukje Dekker's Versus, records the artist first kissing then headbutting a boxing ball continuously for 10 minutes as a single take performance to camera. Such acts of apparent meaninglessness, allow Dekker to mediate on the status of value in a world without transcendence, which through her acts of banal repetition, create a frame of reference that can ultimately liberate us from the existential void we are all bound to eternally rehearse.

Aukje Dekker recently exhibited work at the Gallery Vriend van Bavink, Amsterdam, the Camden Arts Centre, London, the
Venice Biennial and at the Crypt Gallery, London. She was born in Holland and lives and works in Amsterdam.
