In her multimedia  practice, artist Marjolijn Dijkman investigates the relationship between people and their surroundings. How do we experience reality? How do we understand the ever changing world? Dijkman also explores the human determination to interfere with and to influence the world around us. Aspects from (popular) culture, science and time come together in her work. Her oeuvre investigates traces of events in the past, present, the future, our collective narratives, historical objects and the human relationship to all these objects. Her practice is threefold: international ongoing projects, works developed in relation to specific contexts or interests and narratives and initiatives such as Enough Room for Space, an independent art organisation that she launched in 2005 in association with Maarten Vanden Eynde and which is known for its focus on experimental research projects and exhibitions. Marjolijn Dijkman lives and works in Brussels.
