Annosh Urbanke takes photos of everyday scenes. This could be how the light illuminates a shopping arcade, the bite out of an apple, or the pattern of beer mats in a pub. Along the way she is distracted by events and photographs patterns in different situations. During an archival journey through all those images, a puzzle work is created, as a result of which different forms relate to each other. These photos create a contemporary design language, just like the architecture of the Amsterdam School.

In the exhibition "On(on)derbroken" Urbanke shows how she is constantly interrupted (Dutch: onderbroken) in her work and takes pictures of things that attract her attention and pull her out of the everyday routine. At the same time, her work is also uninterrupted because the patterns she photographs recur in a different way.

Her analogue photography, in which the costly chemical process is converted from film to negatives, challenges her to look at exactly the right moment. With a limit of 36 shots on a 35mm film roll, analogue photography lends itself to taking a step back - letting the digital generation be for what it is - and concentrating on precise moments that cannot be optimized by instant image editing. Annosh Urbanke, for example, creates new patterns and forms in a traditional way that stimulate the imagination of the viewer.

Annosh Urbanke (Heerlen 1992) lives in Amsterdam and keeps herself busy in various artistic projects as a photographer, curator and writer.

The exhibition in the lunchroom is open to both museum visitors and guests without an admission ticket from Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
