"Eylem Aladogan: Pharmagenic Decline, you won't suffer any harm"
2002-03-24 until 2002-05-20
Museum Het Domein
Sittard, , NL Netherlands

Eylem Aladogan: Pharmagenic Decline, you wont suffer any harm is Aladogans first solo exhibition in the Netherlands. which is made up of elements: a large installation of ceramic sculptures and a series of drawings. In her work she embarks on an Odyssey the leads her along science, philosophy and nature, a fascination fo rthe boundries of these fields in a general sense and, more specifically, in relation to humankind. Rather than the level of these fields proper, her work concerns the level of the arts, where a possible outcome looms large and ominous.

A student trip to Australia in 2000 is a large basis for the inspiration for this exhibition. Aladogan, born 1975, currently lives and works in Rotterdam. After her studies at the Willem de Kooning Academie of Rotterdam, she studied for a year at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam, She has exhibited at several museums and galleries in the Netherlands and now has an invitation to work for three months at the European Ceramic Work Center in Den Bosch.

Museum het Domein is a museum for contemporary art and urban history and archaeology. Het Domein is a young museum that is situated literally and metaphorically at the centre of the periphery. Literally because the museum premises are in the provincial town of Sittard, at a reasonable distance from other cultural centres like Heerlen, Maastricht, Brussels, Antwerp, Aachen, Cologne and Düsseldorf with their many museums and cultural institutions. And metaphorically because the museum implements an idiosyncratic policy of its own.

The present-day premises of het Domein, a former nineteenth-century municipal school, lie in the historic centre of Sittard. The ground floor contains the exhibitions and collections of international contemporary art, with photography and video art as specialisations. The upper floor is reserved for the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions on the history of the city and its environs, with a multimedia street specially for young people.
