Banana-Memorial_1

Vladimír Turner (1986) graduated from the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) in audiovisual studies, then he studied at the Studio of Intermedia Confrontation at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. He has been to study stays in Buenos Aires, Valencia and Australia. In his works, he oscillates between documentary film, art in public space and activism. He does not perceive these fields as divided, trying to combine them within a whole he labels as active civic life. His works from around the world can be seen in the streets, on film screens and in galleries.

A collaboration with Futura Prague & Czech Centre Rotterdam

12.3.2014 Annika Kappner – THE FLAMINGO, THE EGG, THE PALMTREE, THE PYRAMID AND THE BANANA

Posted on February 28, 2014 by in AgendaNews

The show presents the latest work of Annika Kappner developed during a 3 months residency at Het Wilde Weten. Through painting she investigates the perception of existing visual and conceptual archetypes and thought patterns in an attempt to bridge the apparent dissociation of spiritual evolution, collective consciousness and scientific progress. Through the use of reflective material she points the focus on light as the basis of our perception and understanding of the world we live in.

Doppelgänger / Dubbelganger is an exchange project between Opekta Ateliers and Het Wilde Weten, two similar artist run spaces in the sister cities of Cologne (D) and Rotterdam (NL).

Over the course of the year 2013, 26 artists from both spaces had the opportunity to stay in each other’s studio building and discover each other’s cities.

The results of this extensive exchange are presented in this publication.

With texts by Sofie Mathoi and Gerben Willers

Design by Esther Kokmeijer & Therese Schuleit
edition: 500

Now available at Het Wilde Weten!

THE INFECTION – genesis of a new life
interior refurbishment
Altamura-IT / Rotterdam-NL
2013
Giacomo Garziano (gg-loop.com) and Matteo Garbagnati (mgarba.eu)

When a body is sick it changes equilibrium, any method applied to cure it is actually perceived by the body as causing an imbalance initially, as an infection itself. This project seeks to generate new life, recreate a positive equilibrium, in a long abandoned space. Based on the Voronoi diagram, the furniture spreads its cells along the walls of the apartment embracing and purifying the entire space.

We hope to see you here!
Kind regards,

Het Wilde Weten members
