PolakVanBekkum: Shadows Move Right, 2020

The Amsterdam artist duo Esther Polak and Ivar van Bekkum collaborate under the name PolakVanBekkum. Their work is about mobility and landscape. PolakVanBekkum: “In our fascination with movement, we are always looking for ways to capture the moment when something happens. Every movement changes the experience of space. ” In 2019, the Oude Kerk presented their video work De Rit (The Ride).
