Methods of Investigation: Jouke Kleerebezem, Exquisite Enclave
The Dutch identity? number 9
The experience of time was the central aspect of Jouke Kleerebezem’s installation Exquisite Enclave at Museum De Paviljoens.
Through a publication, website and two completely different spaces and installations in the museum, he presented the public with different experiences of time; after all, each medium has its own experience of time. The element of time was also reinforced by the use of very different objects and materials in the installation. The two museum spaces were filled with filmstrips, an old, dilapidated carriage, fermenting apples and jarred vegetables, along with chalk drawings and projections of images that Kleerebezem sent to Museum De Paviljoens via the Internet.
By including two life-size portraits of the surrealists Max Ernst and Jean Arp in his installation, the artist also made a reference to Surrealism and connected the associative ability of the surrealists with the associative searching power of Internet search engines. The installation was made within the framework of the exhibition Methods of Investigation.
