Review by Kees Koomen on: chmkoome.wordpress.com
Artists - Talking with Hands - The Hague:
The hand of the human may be distinguished by the precision grip; however, the humanity of the hand, Heidegger argued, lies in its possession by the word. ‘Man does not “have” hands, but the hand holds the essence of man, because the word as the essential realm of the hand is the ground of the essence of man’. Thus language holds the hand, and the hand holds man.

AS FAR AS I CAN REACH
Liza Wolters, Mike Moonen, Sophia den Breems, Gordon Meuleman,
How deep, how high, how
fast and how far can we go? Shall we talk about the path, which
lies ahead of us? About the work we want to create and the dreams
we have. We wonder. What are the possibilities in our everyday lives?
Can you push the sky? The magic of the mundane only reflects when
you put it out there.
The group exhibition As Far As I Can Reach is built on a foundation
of these questions and consists of new work made by five artists.
The work is specifically made for Quartair.
The common denominator that brought these artists together for this
exhibition is a sense of wonder about the magic of the mundane.
However, the work of these individuals emerges in very different
ways and through different routes, from your tears smashing on concrete
to waterfalls swallowed by soaked pillows.
The opening on the 8th of June, 8 pm,
coincides with the start of the art festival Holaa! in The Hague.
Open: 12:00-18:00 on 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16 of June
Sunday 17th closed
The exhibition will be supervised by the artists themselves.
You can find us on social media.

Milaan bij Quartair
In april vindt in Milaan jaarlijks de internationale Designweek plaats.
Designliefhebbers uit de hele wereld overspoelen de stad een week
lang om het nieuwste op het gebied van design te (laten) zien.
Ooit was het alleen de meubelbeurs, maar inmiddels is ieder leeg plekje
in de stad gevuld met design. Nederlandse ontwerpers zijn al jaren
zeer populair. En tijdens Festival Designkwartier spot jij deze pareltjes
heet uit Milaan gewoon in Den Haag bij Quartair!
juni van 11:00 - 18:00 uur.

21 April and Sunday 22 April 12.00 - 18.00
Iliada Charalambous, Luis Maly, Leonie Schneider, Jeannette Slutter.
Today we constantly experience a changing social, and urban landscape
in which temporality is the norm, objects are made to be replaced instead
of to last.
Fresh Dough is an exhibition where four young artists based in The Hague
react to this notion of temporality through sculptural ephemerality
and a reaction to space.
Four diverse approaches to sculpture and site-specificity will be presented
in Quartair to explore the temporality in contemporary sculpture and
perhaps its very ephemeral nature.
Luis Maly (1991, Wiltz) is a multidisciplinary artist based
in The Hague. For the past year he is busy making architectural interventions
in space. These normally are consisted by large scale installations.
His work is a open dialogue with the exhibition space. By studying
the space he composes a work which fits harmonically to the location.
(1993, Munich) is a visual artist and musician, currently based
in The Hague. She is in the graduation year of her bachelor study
of fine arts at the Royal Academy of The Hague. Her artistic practice
deals with the topics power and authority in social structures. The
concept of family constellation is often an inspiration to the positioning
of her sculptures. The idea of the stage, where audience and sculptures
are performing together reappears in her exhibiting.
Limassol, 1993) is an artist currently based in The Hague. She holds
a BA diploma in Fine Arts, sculpture from the Royal Academy of Fine
Arts, The Hague. Currently she is engaged in an artistic practice
exploring various aspects of the human condition within contemporary
society in relation to the past.
Slütter's (1988, Enschede) work consists of site-specific
installations/situations. She studied at the Royal Academy of Art
in The Hague and is living and working between Rotterdam and The Hague.
In her works she questions the format of exhibition, with an interest
in duration and movement.

The Winter exhibition
of the MA Artistic Research
Friday 16 February from 17.00

and on the place of exhibitions within the art school context.
The exhibition follows on
from an earlier event held at STROOM, Den Haag on February 9 with artist
Marysia Lewandowska. Both events focus, in different ways, on issues
related to the modes and contexts of artistic distribution.
