PROGRAMMA

Kboek-Round Production

zondag 5 april 2009 t/m maandag 27 april 2009

The exhibition Kboek-Round Production was part of Marit Shalem's project 'Points for Production'; an artistic research into aspects of work and production. Her research refers to terms taken from capital economy, the rhythm of daily work and the momentum of an idea. It carries no direct activist, moralist or academic claim. The book is a gathering of different interpretations and is based on the idea of the conglomerate, an overall corpus, built through clotting a varied number of functioning organs.

More information on the participating artists and pictures of the show can be found under project.

Beeldcollectief Leopold Emmen

Beeldcollectief Leopold Emmen is a visual collaboration between filmmaker Nanouk Leopold (1968) and visual artist Daan Emmen (1968). Their projects focus on the relation between film and spatial experiences and have an autonomous, sculptural approach. Their aim is to explore the presentation of an 'image' in public space through formal experiments. Beeldcollectief Leopold Emmen was founded in 2008.

Dalit Sharon

Dalit Sharon (1957) has graduated at the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem and is currently based in Tel Aviv.

Sharon's use of the architectural line intrigues a transformation between the earthly and the spiritual, between politics and art and between violent force to tenderness. After many years as a painter she is lately reaching out into the media of installation and film.

She is one of the initiators of the Wings Art and Theater Center for the mentally disabled.

Hillegon Brunt

Hillegon Brunt (1964) makes unusual portraits of people. Human and animal are used as main inspiration sources. The portraits reveal a unique presence and characteristics of an individual suggested through a non-blatant presentation of a mask. Brunt's drawings deal with the perfection of natural creation in such a way that the portraits seem to move almost breath by themselves.

About Kboek-Round Production

A number of artists and writers were engaged to contribute to the making of the 'Kboek-Round Production'. They received a list of trigger points concerning the relation between art and market, production and hyper realisme. The reactions came back in a varied forms: essays, photo works, collages and objects.

Kboek-Round Production is part of Marit Shalem's project 'Points for Production'; an artistic research into aspects of work and production. The research refers to terms taken from capital economy, the rhythm of daily work and the momentum of an idea. It carries no direct activist, moralist or academic claim. The book is a gathering of different interpretations and is based on the idea of the conglomerate, an overall corpus, built through clotting a varied number of functioning organs.

Graphic designer Lenno Verhoog combined the contributions into a multiple, open artwork which aims to stimulate the reader to visualize his own complete picture.
