About the exhibition

Carlijn Jacobs works with today's leading brands and celebrities but manages to keep her images quirky and alienating. Sleeping Beauty is an invitation to the subconscious, where anything is possible. The exhibition features a combination of commissioned work and autonomous work that will premiere at Foam. The space in the museum will be enriched with designs by Sabine Marcelis.
