We are very pleased to announce the start of our exhibition project with the two Dutch artists Jolijn van den Heuvel and Bas de Weerd, which is a continuation of our cooperation with SEA Foundation in Tilburg/NL.
Come and talk with the artists in their temporary studio in the Kaiserpassage and enjoy an edible and drinkable pretaste of sprinkle never-in-a-rush essence, in collaboration with Marcia Spinelli (Cologne/GER).
To kick off the exhibition project, the two artists, van den Heuvel and de Weerd, will move into a vacant store in the Kaiserpassage in the center of Bonn for 2.5 weeks. This store will mutate into a laboratory, a visible workshop and will be the starting point for their exploration tours into the urban space of Bonn. Here, direct contacts with citizens can arise en passant. - Art production is made tangible and demystified; here it is in direct dialogue with the copy store, the optician or the children's shoe store, in other words, it is in the midst of life. - This has been a central concern of the exhibition space DAS ESSZIMMER since its founding.
During this time, the two artists develop/produce what will later be present in their exhibition in the ESSZIMMER. The leftovers, that which does not find its way into the ESSZIMMER exhibition and the traces of the work process remain in the Kaiserpassage and continue to be visible.
- Jolijn van den Heuvel (Veghel/NL) focuses, amongst other things, on the concept of fragments in her work.
- Bas de Weerd (Maastricht/NL)’s interest is in painting techniques and processes, as well as the ephemeral such as shadow/light, which are inherently linked to a time and place.
