This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below
2019-2020
Research project and solo-exhibition


‘’For almost a year, Utrecht-based artist Bart Lunenburg, assigned by FOTODOK, researched archival materials from The Archives of Utrecht to learn more about the multi-layered history of this particular site. The research led to the production of new work This Creaking Floor and All the Ceilings Below, where photography, installation and moving image intertwine into a carefully constructed dramaturgy of the space. Lunenburg’s work relates to material features of an habitable building–furniture, floors, doors, windows, and ceilings. A visitor is guided through a space from the remaining medieval foundations of the building to the top floor that was removed during the latest reconstruction in the seventies.’’
