BURN SCAPE

Residency Helen Dowling

A school of tropical fish. Shooting nervously past each other, guided by the sound of a crackling fire. Then three cheerful twenty-somethings snorkeling in a bright pink ocean. In between a shot of the water’s surface taken from the cool depths, behind it the blazing sun, to a soundtrack of sharp shrieking cicadas. Helen Dowling’s The Burning […]

THE ELEMENTAL THAT FACES

Residency Jason Hendrik Hansma

Before you, on the ground, lies a thing. Before me, on the ground, lies the same thing. We see, feel and think differently when we look at this thing, but we are in agreement that it’s there: in and for itself. In the interaction with that thing that lies before our feet, we discover something […]

DE DINGEN IN HUIS

Residency Rachel Sellem, Maaike Knibbe

syb_flyer-01

We touch objects on a daily basis: cups, cutlery, plates, a mouse to control our computer, bottles of shampoo and soap, tools, chairs, couches, tables. We touch these objects because their functions invite us to. We drink coffee from the same cups everyday, sit at the same table, and everyday we open and close the […]

There is no haggling over the price of an artwork at the art fair. What you do see is hands that shake each other enthusiastically, hands that pat people on the back and hands that casually rest on a shoulder during a kiss. And every now and then you might spot a firm handshake that […]

  In the parallel, digital universe of the internet, there is a subculture of people who deep down identify themselves not as human, but as an animal or mystical being. They carry the soul, for example, of a wolf, a fox, a cat, a fairy, a vampire, an angel or a demon. They mostly meet […]

In foreign parts

Review by Julia Steenhuisen

mb_001

John Kørner and I are looking at one of his paintings. Floating above a vast horizon we see a man walking; he carries a bundled-up body over his shoulder. Next we look at a seascape with an enlarged sneaker floating on the surface. They are allusions to the refugee crisis. On the next canvas we […]
