Evangeline Clark – A Blue, A Purple, Aloë vera, Aster, Banaan, Cupcake, Engeland, Hibiscus, Pilli Pilli, Prinsessen Roze, Selectie and Ultiem.

At first glance, the aesthetic intensity of Evangeline Clark’s work may suggest it only exists to announce its own presence. However, the intention of her practise is to act as a spatial disruption through the ephemeral invasion of colour. Clark’s work examines the boundaries between the decorative and the feminine, the grotesque and the pretty, the meaningless and the significant.

BY WEEKLY presents: Emmy Zwagers – Come together in a dream

Period: 15/02 – 24/02/2019
Opening: Sat 16/02 at 17:00
Open: Fri./ Sat./ Sun. 12:00-17:00


Starting from dreams and visions and an interest in science, Emmy constructs a physical and personal relationship with formal images. Through series making and repetitive activity in this mostly process based practice, she uses different sets of tools, materials and activity: hands, body, a broom, oil, spray paint, hair, paper and polymer. Ultimately, longing for a feeling of connectedness through her flats and objects, the works come together in a paintlike installation.

Emmy Zwagers (1989, Oosterhout) works as multidisciplinary artist currently based in Den Bosch. She studied at AKV St. Joost, Den Bosch and Camberwell College of Arts, London, UK. Her work has been showcased at exhibitions at a.o. CGP London, London and Dutch Design Week.

BY WEEKLY is a platform presenting and curating work by students and young artists – as a pop-up exhibition twice a month on various locations. This is the first time to co-host and exhibtion with XPO.

ARE – Just Passing Through

Opening December 14, 2018: 16.00 – 19.00

We’re commemorating the occasion with two exhibitions and a book launch in December, Just Passing Through, Artist Residencies Enschede: A Ten-Year Retrospective.The book is a beautiful document of the more than 80 artists who have attended our artist-in-residence program facilitated by the city of Enschede. It also highlights our exchange project with Dalian, our sister city in China. We’ve captured their work and stories in our anniversary book and two exhibitions.

We invite you to join us for the book launch and exhibition, “Just Passing Through” on December 14, from 16:00-19:00 at XPO in Enschede. Afterward, we’ll continue the party at B93, where we’ll be exhibiting digital prints of works created by the visiting artists from A.R.E. during our monthly Carte Blanche at B93, Hogebothofstraat 166, Enschede.

Anna Cherednikova – Wild Garden

Opening: 29/11/2018, 17:00
Period: 29/11/2018 – 9/12/2018
Open: Fri., Sat., Sun. 12:00-17:00
Location: XPO, Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523 ZL Enschede, Netherlands

How is a garden made?

We consider a garden, as a determined place, where different forms of life mix, adapt and coexist. Constant migration of the plants and species, the present of human intervention everywhere in the nature, makes the borders of the garden are flexible and everything which is inside connects and influences with that what is outside.

Let’s question the way we see a garden and represent it, what we actually define today as a garden, what we protect and put behind the gardens fence and what happens outside.

Anna Cherednikova is a conceptual photographer currently working between Spain and France. Her research centers on the relationship between people and nature, and she works with temporality as central aspect of her practice. MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Complutense University, Madrid and participant in varies residencies with the most recent one at l’École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d’Arles. Anna has received grants from the European Commission and the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Education. Her artworks have been exhibited in Spain, Portugal, Italy and France.

Daniel Maalman – Foundscape (kickoff)

[EN] (Nederlands verder naar beneden)
kickoff: 03/11/2018 – 20:00

Location: Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523 ZL, Enschede (NL)

Since 2016 I have been working on sound-art installations under the name of Lost & Found Orchestra. Until now I have made five big site-specific installations under this name. In these installations I write temporary sound compositions for a specific location, building or a collection of objects, with the help of ‘found’ sounds that are hidden under the surfaces of physical materials.

Foundscape is the next stage of my Lost & Found Orchestra project. For this project I will be doing material research for three months at Sundaymorning@EKWC, from november to februari. My research is focused on the sonic properties of ceramics and the development of sound objects made of ceramics that can be used as instruments in installations. 

After, in march and april 2019 I will continue my research at Studio for Electro Instrumental Music (STEIM) a sound-art institute in Amsterdam, where the emphasis will be on researching and developing methods and techniques to sonify different materials and information. Together with Edwin Dertien I will research the different technical possibilities to make inaudible information on locations audible with the aid of the right sonic tools and custom-made electronics.

One of the goals of my research is to gain new tools and insights with which large site-specific and interactive sound-art installations and performances can be realized. Ceramic objects and electronics can be combined with the sounds of elements of the spaces in which these installations will be placed. Exhibiting and playing with these experimental setups and tools is the next stage of my research.

Because the Foundscape project has different stages, in which I will experiment extensively with materials and electronica, I am looking at different ways to finance the first two phases of my project. That’s why I started a crowdfunding campaign, through which supporters can own a piece of the project in return for their help. Saturday the 3rd of November in XPO will be the launch of the crowdfunding campaign at the opening of the Foundscape Research project, in which I will show some experiments with Edwin Dertien as an introduction to the project.

Sinds 2016 ben ik bezig met geluidskunstinstallaties onder de naam Lost & Found Orchestra. Onder deze naam heb ik tot nu toe vijf grote site-specific installaties gemaakt. In deze installaties houd ik me bezig met het schrijven van tijdelijke site-specific geluidscomposities, met behulp van ‘gevonden’ geluiden die verborgen liggen onder de oppervlaktes van fysieke materialen.

Foundscape is het volgende stadium van mijn Lost & Found Orchestra project. Voor dit project ga ik eerst drie maanden materiaalonderzoek doen bij Sundaymorning@EKWC, van november tot februari. Mijn onderzoek is gericht op de klankeigenschappen van keramiek en het ontwikkelen van keramische geluidsobjecten die gebruikt kunnen worden als instrumenten in installaties. 

Daarna, in maart en april 2019 gaat mijn onderzoek verder bij Studio for Electro Instrumental Music (STEIM), een geluidskunstinstituut in Amsterdam, waar de nadruk zal liggen op het onderzoeken en ontwikkelen van methodes en technieken om  verschillende materialen en informatie te sonificeren. Samen met Edwin Dertien zal ik de technische mogelijkheden onderzoeken om onhoorbare informatie op locaties hoorbaar te maken met behulp van de juiste sonische gereedschappen en op maat gemaakte elektronica.

Een van de doelen van mijn onderzoek is om nieuwe gereedschappen en inzichten te vergaren waarmee ruimtevullende site-specific en interactieve geluidskunstinstallaties en performances kunnen worden gerealiseerd. Keramische objecten en elektronica kunnen worden gecombineerd met de geluiden van elementen in de ruimtes waarin deze installaties komen te staan. Het exposeren en bespelen van deze experimentele opstellingen is het volgende stadium van mijn onderzoek.

Omdat het Foundscape project verschillende stadia heeft, waarin ik uitgebreid ga experimenteren met materialen en electronica, ben ik op zoek naar verschillende manieren om de eerste twee fases van mijn plan te financieren. Daarom ben ik een crowdfunding campagne begonnen, waarmee supporters een stukje van het project in hun bezit krijgen in ruil voor hun hulp. Zaterdag 3 november zal in XPO de crowdfunding campagne van start gaan bij de opening van de Foundscape Research expositie, waarin ik met Edwin Dertien enkele experimenten zal tonen als introductie van het project.

Maarten van Aken – Window of Perception

 

 

[EN] (Nederlands verder naar beneden)
Opening: 13/09/2018 – 17:00-19:00
Period: 13/09 – 23/09/2019
Open: Fr./ Sat./ Sun. 12:00-17:00
Location: Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523 ZL, Enschede (NL)

During the opening, Maarten will enter into dialogue with architect Nick Albers about his work and process. They will talk about maartens work and proces now, in china and in the future.

Maarten van Aken is fascinated by the interrelationship between architecture, light and humans. People are rarely seen but their traces can be seen.

Powerful light defines space and intersections. A window is an intersection, a gateway, like a painting can be.

Such an intersection can be called a liminal space. A liminal space is the time between ‘what was’ and the ‘next’. It is a place of transition, yet time seems to stand still. In this place we can play with perception.

In October 2017 Maarten van Aken was an artist in residence in Dalian(China). The language barrier enforced to be silence, to listen, to observe. This resulted in a mindset of “living in the moment” and the focus shifted towards the light on unconventional combinations in local architecture.

The works in this exhibition are an attempt at capturing these moments and to build a bridge between inside and out, China and Netherlands and the physical and imaginary space.

This exhibition is a result from the warm cooperation between the city of Enschede, Dalian Zhongshan Art museum (China) and ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede

[NL] Venster van perceptie

Opening: 13/09/2018 – 17:00-19:00
Periode: 13/09 – 23/09/2019
Open: vr./ za./ zo. 12:00-17:00
Locatie: Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523 ZL, Enschede (NL)

Tijdens de opening gaat Maarten in dialoog met architect Nick Albers. Het gesprek zal gaan over het werk, het proces en de achtergrond van het werk van Maarten. Zowel van het werk wat hij creëerde in China, als zijn werk nu en in de toekomst.

Maarten van Aken is gefascineerd door het spanningsveld tussen architectuur, licht en de mens. De mens is zelden te zien maar zijn sporen zijn wel altijd zichtbaar.

Krachtig licht definieert een ruimte en toont zich op het snijvlak van binnen en buiten. Het venster als grens tussen twee werelden, waarbij een schilderij zelf ook als venster dient.

Een dergelijk grensvlak wordt ook wel liminal space genoemd. Een liminal space is de tijd tussen datgene wat was, en datgene wat komt. Het is een plek van transformatie, waar de tijd stil lijkt te staan. Een plek waar gespeeld kan worden met de perceptie.

In Oktober 2017 was Maarten van Aken een artist in residence in Dalian(China). De taalbarrière dwong tot stilte, luisteren en observeren. Hierdoor ontstond een mindset van “in het moment leven” en kwam de focus van het licht op de ongebruikelijke combinaties in lokale architectuur te liggen.

De werken in de tentoonstelling zijn een poging deze momenten vast te leggen en een brug te slaan tussen binnen en buiten, China en Nederland en de fysieke en imaginaire ruimte.

Deze tentoonstelling is het resultaat van de warme samenwerking tussen de gemeente Enschede, het Dalian Zhongshan Art Museum (China) en ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede.

Weng Daosheng – 象外 – Beyond images

Opening: 31/07/2018 17:00 (Tuesday)
Period: 31/07 – 11/08/2018
Open: Fri./Sat./Sun. 12:00-17:00
Location: Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523ZL Enschede, Netherlands

Speaking in the language of painting, Weng Daosheng represents a world beyond images. A visual language derived from the figurative and reality, where the eternal things you are deliberately looking for in reality are not found. And perhaps are elevated to an ideology.
Beyond images shows the performance in the world of the mind, although it seems like concrete images, it emerged from the abstract. Beyond images.

This exhibition is a result from the warm cooperation between the city of Enschede, Dalian Zhongshan Art museum (China) and ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede). Weng Daosheng has been invited by Cheng Liang, curator of Dalian Zhongshan Art museum, to participate in the exchange program between Dalian and Enschede. He has been living and working at the ARE studio at art initiative B93 for several weeks and concludes this period with an exhibition.

Debbie Voerman – ‘Zelfbeeld’

Opening: 29/06/2018 at 17:00
Period: 29/06 – 08/07/2018
Open: Fri./Sat./Sun. 12:00-17:00

This time the opening will take place on Friday instead of the usual Friday. During the opening at the 29th of June Afra Willems will give a opening speech at 18:00.

‘Zelfbeeld’

I’m nobody, like me.
nobody likes me..
there’s nobody like me…

In the ‘selfie culture’ within online media, self-image and external appreciation are intimately entwined. ‘Likes’ determine how a ‘nobody’ becomes someone and someone becomes nobody.

Debbie translates images from online media to self-portraits on canvas – and back again to social media via photos – where they become subject to the same system. During her Artist-in-residence period In 2017 in Spain Debbie explored how to break that circle.

Only focus on image.
In the end, everyone is unique

Edwin Dertien – reFURBYshment

[EN] Opening: 25/05/2018 at 17:00
Open during Makerfestival Twente:
25/05 12:00-17:00

Location: Stroinksbleekweg 2, 7523 ZL, Enschede

Suppose robots in the future will be our companions, our housemates, our helpers… then these robots should be able to engage with us on a social level, evolve alongside us and become co-bots. So what does it take to build a social robot? Eyes, a voice and some furry ears? So what if these robots have already been developed two decades ago? They might have been ready for us all along, but are we ready for them? How are we treating these tiny furry creatures entrusted in our care? Reason enough to start the reFURBYshment project: a retirement home for Furbies! All Furbies are welcome, to be revived, find their place (or, if all else fails, become organ donor).

Edwin Dertien is teacher, maker and tech-artist working on social robotics using digital fabrication. ReFURBYshment premiered during MakerFaire Eindhoven and was part of the RobotLove Embassy during Dutch Design Week 2017

Stel dat robots in de toekomst onze metgezellen zijn, onze huisgenoten, onze helpers … dan zouden deze robots op sociaal niveau met ons moeten kunnen samenwerken, mee evolueren en co-bots worden. Dus wat is er nodig om een ​​sociale robot te bouwen? Ogen, een stem en wat harige oren? En wat als deze robots al twee decennia geleden zijn ontwikkeld? Ze waren misschien al altijd klaar voor ons, maar zijn wij al klaar voor hen? Hoe behandelen we deze kleine harige wezens die aan ons zijn toevertrouwd? Reden genoeg om het reFURBYshment-project te starten: een bejaardentehuis voor Furbies! Alle Furbies zijn welkom, worden nieuw leven ingeblazen, vinden hun plaats (of worden orgaandonor, als al het andere mislukt).

Edwin Dertien is leraar, maker en tech-kunstenaar die werkt aan sociale robotica met behulp van digitale fabricage. ReFURBYshment ging in première gedurende MakerFaire Eindhoven en maakte deel uit van de RobotLove-ambassade tijdens Dutch Design Week 2017
