You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition #+21.00 by Saskia Noor van Imhoff on Friday February 5 from 6 - 9 pm. Together with the exhibition by Saskia Noor van Imhoff an exhibition by Alicja Kwade will open on the ground floor.
Saskia Noor van Imhoff will examin in her work #+21.00, the architectonic aspects of the building. As though performing a metaphorical archaeological dig, she uncovers visual and conceptual connections in an associative manner, subtly exposing underlying structures of collecting, exhibiting and conservation.
In #+21.00 Van Imhoff approaches de Appel arts centre as an artificial archeological research site. For Van Imhoff, archeology is not solely a formalistic interest, but also functions as a metaphor for a timespan that can be related to a personal mental and physical state. While in a depot we attempt to conserve objects from the test of time with ‘make up’, we surely also attempt to investigate and conserve ourselves.
Coinciding with the exhibition in de Appel arts centre, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam will show from February 13 until 8 May 2016 a new installation based on works by Van Imhoff that have recently been included in the collection. The two exhibitions will be connected through a limited edition publication that will be available through both institutions.
The exhibition is on show till April 10.
