In this afternoon conversation, artists Sara Blokland (The Netherlands, 1969) and Femmy Otten (The Netherlands, 1981) talk about their work in relation to the exhibition ‘Some Things Hidden’. They have been invited to make a site-specific installation in the former studio of artist Gisèle van Waterschoot van der Gracht, in Castrum Peregrini, a WWII safe house. Blokland is a visual artist who works mainly with photography and film, while Otten explores beauty using wood, plaster and paper.
