PETRA LUNENBURG ILLUSTRATION

GONE WITH THE WIND

An exhibition by curators Alexander van Slobbe and Francisco van Benthum for the Zuiderzee Museum in 2009.

For it's 60th anniversary the museum organised a large group show involving artists, fashion designers and illustrators. I was approached and briefed to create my own take on Dutch folkloric garments. I had acces to all the garments preserved by the museum.

During eight months I drew portraits and figures wearing the traditional clothing combining it with pieces from my own wardrobe. By using black ink only I tied together a series of individual drawings, creating a sense of depth & perspective through placement and by using different sizes of paper on a black background.

Below pictures of the process and the final presentation at the Museum in Enkhuizen ( NL).

One of the artworks I put on screen and is available as silkscreen ( edition of twenty)

A booklet ' First Second' as well as a card series were published in 2009 and in 2013 during the exhibition 'WIT' at the Dutch Photo Museum Rotterdam curated by Anne van der Zwaag.
