Xenia Klein: Cyanotype-tannin prints. Flash poems on papper

“In a world where tyrant covid grabbed its power and is still ruling our lives, we were all forced to make a standstill in one way or another. Now one year after the first lockdown, we’re getting the opportunity to work together again as a group on the cusp of Spring. It feels like a breath of fresh air. Within one week, with all the participants of the MA Masters Artistic Research of KABK, we created the project Sun Kissed // Fog Off. It works like a kaleidoscope and set of gems that share their energy wherever they are presented. We have embraced the restrictions of the pandemic, like not being able to touch or physically gather, and found a way to deal with obstructions. So we started from looking into the possibilities instead and turned those restrictions into ways of presenting the artworks in ways that fit and connect to this specific moment in time. Questions of time and space became important in creating the right relations during the collaborations and between works. What does it mean to present a sculpture in physical space and on the internet? How can they get a physical sense of the works when seeing an image of, for instance, a painting? How does the audience perceive live performance on their laptops at home? And how do we deal with time zones and having colleagues missing out on physical meetings because they cannot be in The Hague? Sun Kissed // Fog Off expands from Korea through Colombia and through the internet to all corners of the globe and digital realms.

The kaleidoscope is always in flux. Sun Kissed by that energy, we playfully say Fog Off.”

Fresh Dough

20 – 22 April 2018
Opening Friday 20 April, from 18:00 – 23:00

With works by Iliada Charalambous, Luis Maly, Leonie Schneider, Jeannette Slutter

Today we constantly experience a changing social, and urban landscape in which temporality is the norm, objects are made to be replaced instead of to last. Fresh Dough is an exhibition where four young artists based in The Hague react to this notion of temporality through sculptural ephemerality and a reaction to space.Four diverse approaches to sculpture and site-specificity will be presented in Quartair to explore the temporality in contemporary sculpture and perhaps its very ephemeral nature.

About the artists

Luis Maly (1991, Wiltz) is a multidisciplinary artist based in The Hague. For the past year he is busy making architectural interventions in space. These normally are consisted by large scale installations. His work is a open dialogue with the exhibition space. By studying the space he composes a work which fits harmonically to the location. www.luismaly.com

Leonie Schneider (1993, Munich) is a visual artist and musician, currently based in The Hague. She is in the graduation year of her bachelor study of fine arts at the Royal Academy of The Hague. Her artistic practice deals with the topics power and authority in social structures. The concept of family constellation is often an inspiration to the positioning of her sculptures. The idea of the stage, where audience and sculptures are performing together reappears in her exhibiting.

Iliada Charalambous (Limassol, 1993) is an artist currently based in The Hague. She holds a BA diploma in Fine Arts, sculpture from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, The Hague. Charalambous is engaged in an artistic practice exploring aspects of the human condition within contemporary society in relation to the past.

Jeannette Slütter‘s (1988, Enschede) work consists of site-specific installations/situations. She studied at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and is living and working between Rotterdam and The Hague. In her works she questions the format of exhibition, with an interest in duration and movement.
