Artist Talk Tenant of Culture
Tenant of Culture (Hendrickje Schimmel, 1990, Arnhem, Nederland), woont in Londen, VK
Tenant of Culture is the name of the practice of Hendrickje Schimmel. By disassembling and rebuilding manufactured garments, Tenant of Culture examines the ways in which ideological frameworks and power structures materialize in the production, circulation, and marketing of apparel. The materials used in her textile assemblages, installations and workshops, are sourced from garment production as well as secondary use platforms and refuse. Her focus is on what usage and wastage of clothing tell us about the social fabric. Recent solo exhibitions of Tenant of Culture were held at Camden Art Centre (London, 2022), Sophie Tappeiner (Vienna, 2022), Kunstverein Dresden (2021) and Fries Museum (Leeuwarden, 2020). The artist is represented by Galerie Fons Welters (Amsterdam) and Soft Opening (London).
