Sex & the Sea - Denmark by Saskia Boddeke

  • M/S Musee

On September 9, Saskia opened the exhibition Sex & the Sea. 
Sex & the Sea has previously been shown at the Maritiem Museum in Rotterdam and at the Maritime Museum of Sweden.
Saskia Boddeke about this exhibition: 
“The exhibition Sex and the Sea can be seen as a poetic immersive experience. The signature of my work is that it scratches at places you do not expect. It might look and feel beautiful and melancholic, but the message I bring can be painfull. I use the esthetic to open up the audience, so they can embrace the message. The theme of the exhibition is the love and hate relation sailors have with the sea. It is about emotions like loneliness, homesickness, but also about the exploitation of women abroad, but also those left at home”.

Giovanna d'Arco - by Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway

  • Teatro Farnese

Giovanna d'Arco by Saskia Boddeke and Peter Greenaway.

“I’m interested in the strength of Giovanna, her determination in her relationship with her God. She is even willing to kill in his name. In our interpretation Giovanna realizes her mistakes, no one should be killed in obedience to a God. In wars the children are the first innocent victims. In our concept we embrace the refugee children who are wandering around Europe and connect them to Giovanna”

Première: 2 October 2016

Peter contributed with 12 Fallen Angels to the Exhibition "The Dream of Flying" at the Brandts Museum, Odense, Denmark.
"Humans have always dreamt of flying. We have always yearned to cast aside the limitations of our bodies and achieve the ultimate freedom. Since the renaissance, this dream has resulted in the most fantastic inventions and mad experiments – not merely as a means of getting from A to B, but equally as a means of examining ourselves and the world in which we live".

Obedience/ Gehorsam, Jewish Museum Berlin

  • Jewish Museum Berlin

Photo: Igor Mandic

The story of forefather Abraham, who is willing to obey God's command and sacrifice his son, is one of the most puzzling passages of the Bible. In the three monotheistic religions, it is among the most significant and most popular stories and among the first that were ever depicted. The text that is handed down in Judaism as the "Binding of Isaac" to this day still raises questions that are answered differently by the three religions.

British film director Peter Greenaway and multimedia artist Saskia Boddeke understand the sacrifice of Isaac as a human drama. Which is stronger – God's command or the love of a father? And where can the modern subject be found between the priorities of obedience and trust?
