On March 8, 2024, Museum Vlaardingen will open the exhibition “PowerWomen of Vlaardingen”. Quadridexter Rajacenna is featured as one of the contemporary strong women of Vlaardingen, linked to an admirable woman from Vlaardingen’s past.

The exhibition aims to bring women of Vlaardingen out of the shadow of their fishing history, presenting the achievements and obstacles of women in a broader historical context, from net makers to scientists.

Rajacenna’s brain research, including the painting she created with her feet of Einstein, will be on display. Globally recognized for creating eight realistic drawings and paintings upside down simultaneously using multiple limbs, she challenges neuroscience expectations.

Neuroscientist Professor Onur Güntürkün, winner of the Leibniz Prize in Germany, conducts scientific research on her brain, stating, “She is capable of things that neuroscience deems impossible!”. An EEG brain scan already revealed earlier her right and left brain hemispheres are three times more connected than usual.

Rajacenna will be live at work during the exhibition, using both hands and feet for her new project. Schools have the opportunity to participate in workshops led by Rajacenna during the exhibition, along with a visit to the display.

The exhibition runs from March 8 to June 24, 2024.
