Interview: Jasmin Genzel
Luca Curci
talks with Jasmin Genzel during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Jasmin Genzel grew up in The Netherlands, where she studied at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and then at the KABK Royal Academy of Fine Arts The Hague. She then moved to Rome in Italy for about ten years. During these years she worked in the field of communications. Since 2009 she lives and works in the South of France. She has exhibited in The Netherlands, Italy, France, Egypt and the UK. Her prints and aquarelles have been awarded and her work is part of several private collections as well as in the collection of BnF (Bibliothèque Nationale de France) and Cambridge University Library. “There are some interesting contradictions in her work. (…) It makes her works both poetical and philosophical (…)”. M. van Hoogenhuyze, Leiden, October 2015.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Jasmin Genzel –
I am currently working on a woodcut.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
JG –
After my studies at the academy I moved to Rome, in Italy, for nearly ten years. Here I met many great artists and creative professionals and also legendary gallerists. This time has formed my understanding of art in an important way.

LC – What is your creative process like?
JG –
Inspiration can come forth from a stone I pick up, a color, material… I don’t know, there is a spark and then it goes all by itself. I am only holding the brush and see what comes forth. When I finish with one body of work and prepare to start the next, I often go out into nature to make drawings from the landscape to empty and train the eye.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
JG –
I wouldn’t know. Probably. I am always searching.. learning to think and train the thought to see.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
JG –
There are so many more opportunities today for young artists, residencies, grants, PhD research studies, the internet… there is so much out there.

LC – What do you think about the concept of this festival? How did it inspire you?
JG –
I was working on another woodcut when I read about the festival and somehow it fit together. We are sharing the same road together and by cooperating I learn and discover new aspects of my work.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?
JG –
My artwork has no message. I do what I do and it is what it is.

LC – What do you think about the organization of our event and our services? Would you suggest a collaboration with us?
JG –
I am very grateful to ITSLIQUID GROUP and especially during these difficult times I appreciate the effort done to make things work.
