To retain the 30-meter-long, high-quality wallpaper of last year’s project Ulrike Jurklies decided to give the space a new destination and create next to the ‘Biovate’ wallpaper additional 3D objects inspired by skate obstacles cut from left-over foam and flocked with colours matching the wallpaper. DDW visitors were invited to walk through this installation, linger in the space or seat on the foam obstacles to enjoy the view on the Ketelhuisplein.

[ba hoe] …an expression of affirmative excitement and joy, usually as a reply to good news. Can also be used as greeting.
This definition from the urban dictionary perfectly expresses the overarching theme of this installation.

The space was filled with a colourful exhibit. Many meters of digitally printed eco-fabrics — showing the principles of the production process past and present in an abstract manner — draped on special designed display frames and showroom furniture. Throughout the installation concept economical and environment-friendly material use had the highest attention.

In the shop windows of de Bijenkorf in Eindhoven you can see furniture and objects, known from the project ‘See-through’ presented during Dutch Design Week 2017.
All these products were made from leftover material from the production of colored plastic sheets. Because of the different color gradients during the process, every object is unique.
The print on textile was produced by large-format print expert BIG Impact, 100% made from recycled PET bottles, printed with water-based ink.

Expo Space at Area51 Skatepark (2018)

Anyone who has visited the Ketelhuisplein during and after Dutch Design Week may already have noticed: next to the entrance of Area 51 Skatepark a beautiful space was created. Where first the windows were boarded up, an exhibition space has been created and the illuminated graphic patterns on the back wall are visually appealing by themselves. For the third time Ulrike Jurklies presented a design installation during Dutch Design Week at Skatepark Area51. The approx. 35 meters long wall covering of her See-Through installation was deliberately designed to be a colorful eye-catcher, seen from the Ketelhuisplein, but to also offer a clean background for future installations. The graphic patterns were printed on biodegradable wallpaper Walltex Biovate; developed by Big Impact. Consecutive scenes show geometrical, stylized skate obstacles, which lay an abstract link to the location; one of the largest indoor skate parks in Europe. The colorful corridor offers the visitor a spatial visual experience.

Disposition is a word with multiple and varied meanings. It describes one’s position in (a) space; the arrangement, positioning or distribution and one’s frame of mind or spirit.
Disposition (also) refers to: a natural or acquired tendency, inclination or habit in a person or thing. Also, disposition refers to the act of disposing or transfer to another.
All these descriptions apply to the colourful installation created by Ulrike Jurklies; an experiential space which offers multiple perspectives and which challenges the visitor to collect different views.

Orchids – mourning takes time (2015)

VG Colours/VG Orchids

VG Colors’ unique method of influencing the flowering beauty of the orchid inspired Willemijn de Wit and Ulrike Jurklies to visualize an experience that is so difficult to describe in words:
‘Mourning takes time’
The starting point of the installation was the link between the changing beauty of the influence of the dye on the orchids and the mourning process, a visualization of the overwhelming feeling that temporarily takes control over your entire body.

A visual exploration of the modern day skate scene initiated by Willemijn de Wit, Sarah Mesritz & Ulrike Jurklies.
Dutch Design Week 2014. Together with Willemijn de Wit and Sarah Mesritz we took care of this project in a comprehensive manner, from coming up with the concept, all throughout the project’s development, and taking care of all of the final details.
We were also responsible for initiating and curating the exhibition, which involved the set up and organization of four small shows dedicated to specific themes in the world of design and skateboarding: Yann Gross, Jelle Tuinhout, Roos Meerman, Ruben van der Scheer, Crealev, all of which shared a common focus on an artisanal experimental approach to design, a theme that is also very near to my own vision.
