A collective of artists from the Royal Academy of Art The Hague will unite to create a bold and exciting new kind of exhibition. Collaborating the innovative works of 32 distinctive artists, the curator Ad de Jong (sculptor) has a goal to nd a balance between these strikingly different pieces and have them compliment the next, in order to generate an inviting experience for everyone.
The Megastores is the prime location, being a large empty shell to implement this new idea.A wish to reject the cliche white-cube art exhibition led the students here, as well as a wish to mingle and welcome a new, fresh community.
Bringing the new generation of art to a new audience - the KABK cooperative will
promise to show something spectacularly different to previous years.A marriage of all mediums will be witnessed
- sculptures interacting with paintings, installation and video - and in turn will inspire and breath fresh air into the lungs of visitors. The students will be present in the exhibition space and those visiting are encouraged to initiate conversation. Let us ventilate the artistic community!
Absurd fictional stories displaying the human trait of creating tragedy and
drama in our attempt to deal with life. All three stories are written by a wall in order to emphasise the bizarre nature of our existence
if witnessed by an inanimate object.The negative tribulations dealt with are Envy, Unrequited Love, and Miscommunication.
This is a playful look at the metaphysical whilst also questioning why our emotions drive us to face such difficulties.
The pseudo-scientific report 'Do humans cause detrimental effects on a walls consciousness? (see Publications section) derives from
this project and takes specific 'qualitative research' to back up the hypothesis.
