Menno Boerema 1958-2019 © Petra Noordkamp
On June 16 my love Menno Boerema died unexpectedly. Besides a very sweet and caring boyfriend Menno was an amazing experienced and wonderful editor. We worked together on my short film When you return I'll be living by the waterside and my installation Fragile-Handle with Care. I will miss him so much.


This installation Fragile - Handle with Care commissioned by MAXXI, the museum of contemporary art in Rome and the Soprintendenza Archeologica Belle Arti and Paesaggio delle Marche for the project 'Terre in Movimento' will be on show in the MAXXI from the 11th of May till the 1st of September.
A year ago I was asked, together with the Italian photographers Olivo Barbieri and Paola de Pietri, to make a work about the landscapes, the artworks, the ruins and the people of the areas who were affected by the earthquakes that took place in 2016 in the Marche. The project is also documented in a catalogue published by Quodlibet.

Historian and journalist Raymond van den Boogaard wrote a beautiful article about Fragile - Handle with Care and he published it on his blog.
