TRACES STEPHANIE RIZAJ AND MARVIN KANAS   
ARCHITECTS OF IDENTITY   THE ORCHID AND THE WASP

Mobirise

TRACES is the third exhibition from the series ARCHITECTS OF IDENTITY in the WUNDERKAMMER-MINI by Stephanie Rizaj and Marvin Kanas.

We live in a time where anything can be faked through media, modification, and the possibility of reconstructing the body. Nowadays there seems to be a huge gap between what is real and what is seen as a reality. What has happened in the past, or the question where things are coming from, seems to be less and less important. During this project we will discover what kind of effect this shifting point has on the authenticity of art and the working methods and process of the artists.

THE ORCHID AND THE WASP is an artist initiative by artist and curator Maud Oonk.
Since 2015 she instigates exhibitions, encouraging artists to experiment with new ways of presenting by focusing on their making process. The name THE ORCHID AND THE WASP is taken from the biological concept of mutualism, in which two different species interact together to form a multiplicity.

TIDES: LETTING IN, SENDING OUT

Mobirise

Photo Richard Willebrands

For two years we often lived in our own bubble. Contacts with others had become risky. We kept our distance, our faces hidden behind a mouth mask. Opinions were firm.

What did life during a pandemic do to people?
Did you turn inwards and get closer to yourself?
Were you lonely and afraid or angry and rebellious?
Could you remain curious about the other person and did you look for a connection?

Artists often work in silence. They create images from their own perspective. Focused on the self, the other, the world, the future. All these perspectives come together in this exhibition. TIDES: LETTING IN, SENDING OUT

The exhibition shows recent work of sixteen artists.

Composition and organisation
Fleur van den Berg, Jacqueline Bohlmeijer, Ellen Klijzing and Mieke de Waal, with the assistance of Caroline Kampfraath.

NDSM EXPO XI   ODYSSEE 2.0

The Odyssey is Homer's epic about Odysseus' journey to Ithaca. A journey full of challenges, misery, monsters and temptations. The stories include betrayal, but also cleverness and love, endurance, creativity and hope. A metaphor for man's journey through life and the search for its meaning.

Heroic stories like this one are found in cultures all over the world, for as long as mankind has existed. They are sung about in literature, films and games. And the hero is man himself, who is confronted with the problems of all times: temptation, corruption, waste, self-centredness, escapism, ignorance, intolerance, abuse of power.

How does contemporary man deal with these? How do we deal with them? Do we close our eyes and let ourselves be carried away by the wind or do we swim against the current and overcome the whirlpools and dangers that threaten to devour us, like Odysseus?

The exhibition is arranged in such a way that the viewer can map out a journey for him/herself along the great variety of works of art with which the artists have responded to the theme, such as:

The journey as a spiritual experience 

The journey that reflects and comments

The journey as a sensual experience 

The journey through the subconscious

The journey as an escape from reality

SOULMATES

Mobirise

In the exhibition SOULMATES, sculptors Sanne van Tongeren and Renée Marcus Janssen present their portraits to the viewer and to each other.

The artists have much in common. Both are trained at an Italian academy, both use the same materials and both create realistic portraits. The difference is in their models: Renée portrays animals, Sanne humans.

In preparing for the exhibition, Renée and Sanne discussed the differences involved in their choice of subjects. In examining what sets them apart, they found what binds them together: a kinship with whom they sculpt, which also grows while observing. Perhaps the visitor will also experience this relationship by looking.

As part of their research, Sanne has captured the encounters with her colleague Renée in a portrait. A video of its creation will be shown in the Welcome Center during the exhibition.

PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS

CADAVRE EXQUIS

Mobirise

CADAVRE EXQUIS is a continuous artwork by Rienke Enghardt. CADAVRE EXQUIS is based on a children’s game that has been played all over the world for centuries. At the start of the last century the surrealists recognized the game as an expression of art and gave it its illustrious name. CADAVRE EXQUIS playful drawings that since developed give an impression of the zeitgeist of the turbulent years between the two world wars.

At NDSM FUSE is a permanent CADAVRE EXQUIS table with paper and pencils. The collected drawings, made by more than a thousand artists and visitors, displayed on the wall next to the table give an impression of today’s zeitgeist.
