Carlijn Jacobs: Sleeping Beauty
Foam – Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam
October 06, 2023 – January 21, 2024

Carlijn Jacobs works with today’s leading brands and celebrities but manages to keep her images quirky and alienating. Sleeping Beauty is an invitation to the subconscious, where anything is possible. The exhibition features a combination of commissioned work and autonomous work that will premiere at Foam. The space in the museum will be enriched with designs by Sabine Marcelis.

Carlijn Jacobs has a fascination with traditional forms of costume and disguise. She relates phenomena such as the Japanese geisha and the age-old tradition of the Venetian carnival to today’s beauty and fashion scene. Jacobs is also currently experimenting with Artificial Intelligence, which takes her imagination to a peak: nothing is impossible yet. The images she manages to create via AI are like film stills of a strangely attractive nightmare.

On the occasion of this exhibition, Carlijn Jacobs invites Dutch artist and designer Sabine Marcelis to respond to her work by enriching the exhibition space with her designs, allowing Jacobs and Marcelis to create their ultimate dream world together.

“I am fascinated by the idea of the mask. You hide behind something and can become someone else. The whole fashion world is actually a form of escapism: you create a new persona.”
