The exhibition GEEF shows the work of artist Bert Scholten.
In recent months, Bert settled in Werkplaats Molenwijk, where he immersed himself in the wonderful world of the biscuit board. The biscuit board has a rectangular shape with an image that was used to produce biscuits. The people who made the woodcuts were traveling craftsmen who passed on local stories with the woodcuts. Bert immerses himself in folktales, local customs and rituals and translates these into the current context. In Molenwijk he started dialogue with residents, young and old, about the age-old Dutch tradition of the biscuit board and explored song as a medium for storytelling. In dialogue with local residents, he created the work that can be seen in this exhibition.
