Untitled (2011) by Tomo Savic-Gecan

The room shown in the movie is one out of four rooms for the installation ‘untitled’ (2011). Savic-Gecan made this installation for the Witte de With, Rotterdam (NL) exhibition Melanchotopia. The text on the wall explains: “Every change in temperature in the city of Rotterdam causes one of the spaces in Witte de With to open and close.”

Meewisse travelled to the woods in the most eastern part of the Netherlands, where he chopped down a lot of trees. The wood harvested in the forest was taken home to produce a variety of construction materials.

Dijkman shot the video from a boat circling a newly created island. This video was eventually dubbed with audio excerpts from moviescenes where people are entering land from the water.

Oskar Dawicki, ‘I’m sorry’ (2010)

Live in front of the audience Dawicki reads a text explaining he’s sorry for the failed performance he’s giving. Finally, to make up for wasting the audience’s time and the curator’s chance of putting on a good show, he hands out sweets while a taperecorder plays the sound of him crying and once more apologizing.

A performance seen in Rotterdam during Witte de With’s performance cycle ‘Let us compare mythologies’. Pictures by Peter Rakossy.

April 3rd: Nikki Koole @ Galerie Gallery

neukmannetjes

Nikki Koole, ‘Neukmannetjes’ (2005)

An application that generates a simplified version of  the game of seduction..
It starts with two babies, one male, one female. Once adults, they wander around the screen until they bump into eachother. They then have intercourse, after which the male leaves and the woman gives birth. Her baby will grow up, and enter the game.. This is repeated until the screen is fully filled with inhabitants, when everything collapses and the process starts over.

Nikki Koole will be presenting new works at Galerie Gallery tomorrow, Saturday the 3rd of April. You are welcome to join our festivities from 18.30hrs.
