'YES, NO AND MAYBE'
‘Yes, No and Maybe’ is the title of the exhibition of artists Fenna Koot, Emmie Liebregts and Amber van Rangelrooij. In line with Kadmium’s annual theme, ‘Together’, the artists experiment with the concept of an encounter. From a meeting, a shared ideal can arise, what could this ideal be when the existing norms, such as the status we have or don’t have, the boxes we do or don’t fit into are adjusted because:
Yes, abstraction disregards the grid and its structure, and No, the gold determines the way, but Maybe we can break through it.
You are welcome to visit the exhibition ‘Yes, No, and Maybe’ from 15 to 30 October. Open Wednesday to Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00.
The exhibition opens on 15 October from 15:00 to 17:00 at Kadmium, Sint Agathaplein 4 Delft.
Yes, you can touch the sculptures, you can even sit in one. With her mainly sculptural works, Emmie Liebregts (Tilburg 1996) seeks ways to open a conversation about having a body through which you experience the surrounding world. The work stems from experiences around personal space, safety and discomfort. Through Emmie's sculptures, she searches for ways to make you engage in a physical relationship with the work. Will you manage to find the peace and quiet to sit down?
No, you can't pass through here, follow the given route. Using her brand Aesthetic Studios, Amber van Rangelrooij (Den Bosch, 1996) plays with our imagination. You could call her work conceptual, but that would imply that the concept is more important than aesthetic or material-technical considerations. For her, the idea and the execution are of equal value. Amber wants to be convincing on all fronts through her work. Can the rules in the art context be challenged with a disruptive intervention that looks very innocent at first sight?
Maybe you can detect a hitch in the system? Fenna Koot (Delft, 1996) is fascinated by how architectural spaces affect social structures. The work usually consists of installations or sculptures that attempt to give renewed attention to what is often taken for granted. According to Fenna, it is precisely these obvious elements, such as the commonly used suspended ceiling, that play a crucial role in the ways we form and understand the world.
