LIVERPOOL.- In April 2010 Tate Liverpool will
unveil new commissions by acclaimed Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra.
Rineke Dijkstra: I See a Woman Crying features two Liverpool-based video
works never seen before in the UK. The works were borne out of the
artist’s residence at Tate Liverpool during the European Capital of Culture 2008
exhibition The Fifth Floor: Ideas Taking Space; a groundbreaking project
inspired by ideas and proposals from people across the city. Dijkstra has had a
long and fruitful relationship with Liverpool, using its residents as sitters
for her photography and video works for over 15 years. She explains that she is
drawn to the culture of storytelling and the unwavering friendliness of the
people of the city.
