Teach me a new language @ Tetem, Enschede

Teach me a new language
TETEM kunstruimte – Enschede (NL)

Drawing is a language that is universally readable and can be expressed in various ways: not only in the drawing style, but also in its experimental forms. Curated by the artist duo Kruisdijk/Kuilboer (Ben Kruisdijk & Conny Kuilboer), ‘Teach me a new language’ presents an inter visual universe of drawings in the languages of the following artists:

Steven Baelen, Paul Beumer, Quinta Bies, Marcel van Eeden, Paulien Follings, Bas Kosters, Henrik Kröner, Femmy Otten, Kars Persoon, Abner Preis, Sebastiaan Schlicher and Charlotte Schleiffert.

The diversity in drawing is just one of many starting-points of the exhibition. In addition to a selection of (inter)national artists that are active both within and outside the field of drawing, the exhibition has a strong link with the art academy AKI ArtEZ Enschede. How does the work of the artists who have been educated at the AKI relate to that of the other exhibitors? Is there a clear AKI visual language or is the diversity a recognizable motif in the work of all the participants?

This exhibition is part of Drawing Front: the nationwide manifestation for contemporary drawing, initiated by Kunstvereniging Diepenheim / Drawing Centre Diepenheim in collaboration with 20 art spaces all over the Netherlands. www.drawingfront.nl

10/03/2016 – 08/05/2016
Opening: Sunday 13 March at 15:00 with the performance ’Sending beauty’ by Abner Preis

Miscellaneous Lines @ Sign, Groningen

A groupshow with Sibylle Eimermacher, Ben Kruisdijk, Conny Kuilboer, Sjoerd Westbroek, Henrik Kröner

Exhibition views

MISCELLANEOUS LINES reveals a network of ideas and creates an open playing- field in which the connections between the individual works of art is exposed as far as the content is concerned. Concepts and materials relate to each other in a new way, content emerges by the interaction between the works and the space.
The result is not clear-cut and will be determined by the possibilities of choice which an undecided something is part of. The artists are interested in the way this undecided can be exploited and realised. From this almost tactile process an other constellation comes into existence in which new and (modifi ed) existing works have to relate to each other in various disciplines like painting, installations, assemblies, spatial interventions and works with social operandi.

duration: 12 april 2015 – 10 may 2015

I am not doing anything until I feel the need @ De Nederlandse Bank, Amsterdam

Artist Joanneke Meester invited 365 artists to visualize their personal interpretation of the sentence ‘I am not doing anything until I feel the need’. She reproduced the images in the form of a calendar, which will confront the viewer with this mantra everyday. The exhibition in De Nederlandsche Bank gives an overview of all the original works used for the calendar.

An international group of painters left the comfort zone of their workspaces. They will offer up their ego’s in service of the exploration of a collective work process. Initiators Aquil Copier and Raymond Cuijpers collected together a group of 20 artists who want to create a space for developments which could not exist without the artists leaving their personal universe. Participating artists are:

Papa Adama (Sawadogo), Paul Beumer, Aquil Copier, Raymond Cuijpers, Aleksandar Dimitrijevic, Wieteke Heldens, Lieven Hendriks, Jeroen Hofhuizen, Judith Kisner, Gerben Koldijk, Henrik Kröner, Marie Van Vollenhoven, Marcel Van der Berg, Evi Vingerling, Jop Vissers Vorstenbosch, Coen Vunderink, Ido Vunderink, Jasper van der Graaf

W139 presents There is no I, an experiment where painters explore the possibilities and boundaries of their work at W139. Over the course of a couple weeks, together – without a premeditated plan – they will work on large new paintings. The focus will be on the process of creation, paying attention to discussion about and reflection on painting. At the end of this intensive period of collaboration and exploration the artists of There is no I will show a tangible energy in a final presentation.
