On Saturday January 16th W139 opens its doors from 12:00 - 00:00 for the dynamic group show XII.
With time-based works by Arthur van Beek, Leon de Bruijne, Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti, Harpo ’t Hart, Paul Koek, Genevieve Murphy, Oscar Peters, Anne-Jan Reijn, Caroline Ruijgrok, Carmen Schabracq, Yvo Sprey, Jochem van Tol.
From 12:00 till 00:00 XII won’t stand still, not even for a moment. 12 works of art that slowly expand or quietly shrivel away, maintain a precarious balance, suddenly destroying or resurrecting themselves. All of these pieces make for a show that changes by the minute.
Time-based work is at the focus of this group show. Each artist brings their take on the passing of time to expression by kinetic work, graphic work, performance and compositions, in which everyone’s personal struggle with time is explored.
Witness the birth and stay for the glorious finale. Experience the evolution the works go through within this timeframe. Which pieces will crumble and collapse? And which ones will proudly spread their wings as they cross the finish line? Come to W139 and feel free to stay for the full twelve hours to find out.
Don't worry, the bar will provide you with delicious drinks and tasty snacks during XII.
