"Born with a brick
in your stomach....
The exhibition BRIQUE,
exhibits the work of six Belgium artists. Five of them work in different
media, but all have a clear affinity with the figure', broken
down and rebuilt, in fragments and abstraction. BRIQUE revers not only
to construction and deconstruction in the work but also to the 'building
mania' in Belgium.
The sixth artist Hans Demeulenaere searches for the boundaries between
scenography and installation and will build a sculptural installation
with the use of bricks. His intervention integrates the works from Brouckaert,
Coolen, Cotteleer, Leblon and Serneels in a monumental sculptural installation
and will be reacting on the old industrial architecture of the exhibition
Flemish art historian and curator Stef Van Bellingen wrote an accompanying
essay and will open the exhibition.
This exhibition is made possible
with support from
Stroom Den Haag, de Gemeente Den Haag, de Vlaamse Overheid en de Vlaamse
vertegenwoordiging/Ambassade van België

The Project Sukebeningen
presents Japanese eroticism, inspired by the Dutch beach Scheveningen,
as a form of collaborative works with invited artists. Its objective
is to explore sensuality and to accommodate different views on eroticism
each invited artist possesses.
This time we develop a new
work with two artists: Nishiko and Gabey Tjon a Tham. Using found objects
and controlled kinetics, we make an installation that generates erotic
feeling and may trigger one's erotic fantasy.
Although dealing with
a somewhat sensitive topic, the work welcomes diversity of visitors
because of its balance between being entertaining and serious, open
and private, exploring the contradicting possibilities of the subject.

started as a way to get MAR people and ArtScience people to mingle more,
but quickly merged into an expanded network of people, who are interested
in pitching their unfinished thoughts, projects and research. We keep
a focus on creating a safe space for these newly born ideas, a place
for constructive critique and a shared desire to bring people forward
with valuable feedback. And of course the food component: everyone brings
a delicious, easily shareable (and preferably homemade) dish!
For the event series at Quartair we thought it would be interesting
to bring these unfinished ideas from the safety of the studio into a
more challenging environment - The Gallery! To change things a bit we
would like to focus on performance (/live art/durational installation
- whatever you want to call it!). There will be a conversation with
the Holy Mother, a documentation of a ritual bathe in the canals of
If you have a performance that has not quite taken it's finished shape,
or which you don't quite feel ready to show to the grand public then
shoot us a line.. Then we will try and create an interesting program
for the night. As time is always an issue with these evenings unfortunately
we cannot fit more than 5 people in max.
Rules for participation:
Bring your most constructive, open-minded, critical self
Bring a pillow or blanket to sit on
Bring *GALLERY-WORTHY* food! So no Albert Heijn ready-made or the like...
We'd like to keep it a bit classy :*

OPEN LAB EXPO
6, 2014, 2-9 pm.
New media, art, science and
technology come together in the New Media New Technology Open Lab Expo
by creative researchers from
the Media Technology MSc programme, and hosted by Quartair Contemporary
Art Initiatives, The Hague.
The Open Lab will not
be a static expo, more a playful research space that mixes scientific
approaches to art with creative approaches to science, for all audiences.
The researchers work from personal inspiration and curiosity and create
physical works to explore their concepts or engage the visitor to evoke
ideas or questions. Many installations are interactive, some are early
studies and prototypes, others will be more polished end products. The
makers will be around to discuss the concepts, inspiration, ideas and
methods behind their work, and even hack some more on the fly.

Facebook event and spread the word

The Second Explodes
Dutch artists from Den Haag will come to Lana from April 28th until
Mai 4th in the context of an artists exchange between Southern
Tirol and Den Haag. The title, The Second Explodes, refers amongst others
to an explosion of activities which will take place within a short time.
Apparently fleeting encounters (between artworks/public/artists) which
can be experienced as a concentration of events. An explosion of events
that will commence in each a stream of associations. Next to showing
existing artworks the main starting point for the artists will be to
create site-specific work and there will also be performances. The Second
Explodes is a happening.
There will be film, performance, drawings, paintings, installations
and sound. And dont miss the ARTWALK!
A master of ceremonies will accompany the visitors and he will put the
different happenings and artworks in the spotlight.
