On the visual side, artist Dymph de Gooijer (b. 1998) excels in the use of oil paint, ink and watercolour in her drawings. Her creations are a visual symphony of contrasts: tactile yet dark, soft yet powerful. What sets De Gooijer apart is her unique ability to capture and visually convey vulnerability, creating a deep connection with viewers. Her art opens a gateway to a shared space of inner conflict, where self-assurance struggles with insecurity, joy struggles against anger and gentleness struggles against contempt. De Gooijer challenges aesthetic norms and encourages viewers to find beauty even in discomfort.
In the harmonious collaboration between Lau Noah and Dymph de Gooijer, you will experience the transcendent interplay between music and visual art. Their expressions offer an intimate and vulnerable experience that invites you to embrace the feeling of being comfortably uncomfortable. Everything is laid bare, encouraging you to explore and form a deep connection with the unfiltered essence of human experience. (Text by Anne-Jet de Nas)
