True Value

A value that would be obtained in an ideal system. An ideal system is one that would have no errors at all. In other words, this is a value that is perfectly accurate. Strictly speaking, the ‘true value’ is hypothetical – no such thing can actually exist.

​For this edition of Disclosed​ Annette Behrens ​takes her ongoing visual research of the soybean as a starting point to explore different perspectives concerning the plant. Through food, industrial products, medication or cosmetics the soybean is closely interwoven into virtually every aspect of our daily lives yet invisible to most of us.
Our knowledge of this legume is largely gained through images and information presented in the media, by NGO’s or often simply hearsay. The same, ever repeating images of, for instance, the tropical deforestation are part of our collective image library. By looking at the development and the use of the plant throughout the past, roughly, 150 years a complex system of interdependency, economics, history, environmental problems and different values can be revealed and questioned.

For this event different aspects of the soybean are examined through photography, video, text, spoken word and meal tastings. A selection of soybean related dishes with their own stories from China, Indonesia, India and Japan will be offered by The Hague’s Keukenverhalen in collaboration with graphic designer Romana Siemons. Rotterdam based spoken word artist Mariana Hirschfeld will perform a tekst written especially for this occasion.

Saturday at 8p.m. and Sunday at 2p.m. a maximum of 30 participants can join the tasting of Keukenverhalen’s meals and Mariana Hirschfeld’s performance, please register at: info@annettebehrens.com
The exhibition space is open for everyone afterwards at 9.30p.m. (Saturday) and 3.30p.m. (Sunday). Please note that the event will be partially Dutch and English.
The evening is free of charge, drinks at your own expense.

True Value is part of the public program DISCLOSED initiated by Het Wilde Weten. Het Wilde Weten consists of sixteen artist that have a studio in the former nunnery at the Robert Fruinstraat. Every six weeks one of the members hosts a public event that derives directly from their artistic practice. This results in lively series of talks, exhibitions, screenings, performances and more, disclosing the energy and pluriformity of the collective and creating public moments to meet and interact.

Special thanks goes to Team Thursday for the poster design.

Bo’i Palu, in Papiamento, means ‘underneath the tree’, an expression that characterises unproductive individuals, but also self-established or impromptu businesses found on the side of the roads in Curaçao. Picking up from the dichotomy of this expression – whose connotation is both negative and positive – Priscila Fernandes has invited several artists she met during her residency at Instituto Buena Bista, in Curaçao, to reflect about the about the relationship between leisure and work.
For the past weeks, this young group of artists has been meeting at HWW to discuss and produce work for an exhibition opening this Friday at 18pm.

HONOLULU is a collective performance that marks the beginning of a long-term collaborative project by Rotterdam based artist Marcha van den Hurk and Amsterdam based artist Tiong Ang. Invited by curators Sasha Dees (New York) and Kóan Jeff Baysa (Los Angeles), the project is geared towards a final implementation on the islands of Hawai‘i in 2019. The performance takes place in a scenographic setting by Marcha van den Hurk. She invited Tiong Ang to restage his band project ‘Sleeper’(BAK basis voor actuele kunst Utrecht/2017), exploring collective, theatrical, performative, dialogic, musical and vocal motives for a sense of artistic agency, contemplation, and resilience.

HONOLULU is part of the public program DISCLOSED initiated by Het Wilde Weten, which will run throughout the coming two years. Het Wilde Weten consists of sixteen artists that have a studio in the former nunnery at the Robert Fruinstraat. Every six weeks one of the members hosts a public event that derives directly from their artistic practice.

Dusk to Dawn Choruses is the first iteration of Julien Grossmann and Song-Ming Ang’s research into the various forms and definitions of the chorus. From the ancient Greek chorus to modern telecommunications companies (Chorus Limited), and from morning birdsongs (dawn choruses) to the humming of Chorus Motors (Borealis Exploration), the project is a musical journey into what a chorus could be.
The outcome of a five-day workshop with an ensemble of five performers from Rotterdam, the evening’s program features a range of musical experiments based on instructional scores and compositions in which the voice occupies a central place.

Het Wilde Weten
Robert Fruinstraat 35
Rotterdam

Over the past three months at Het Wilde Weten, MICHIEL HUIJBEN has been researching the work of a man from Rotterdam who, though not an architect, has designed a series of buildings in his life. These designs span the decades from 1960 until around the year 2000. Some of them were made in direct response to local events, others seem to have functioned on a more abstract level – as a mode of thinking. Together, the works give an insight into their maker’s stance towards historical changes pertaining to themes such as immigration, sustainability, terrorism and real estate.

For Het Wilde Weten’s Disclosed series, Michiel will share his research in a talk titled IF NOT, NOT, using a set of architectural models made according to found descriptions.

Emperors of Ice Cream

DREAMING OF COCKAIGNE


PRISCILA FERNANDES with ABNER PREIS, ARVO LEO, ERIC GIRAUDET DE BOUDEMANGE and RIEKE VOS

SATURDAY 20 MAY
EVENT STARTS AT 20:30 PM
Doors open at 20:00

Imagine a land where skies rain with cheeses, rivers are filled with lemonade and pancakes grow on trees. Where the weather is always mild, sex is readily available and all people enjoy eternal youth. This is Cockaigne, the land of luxury and ease, where work is forbidden and physical pleasure always at hand.

Dreaming of Cockaigne brings an evening teeming with screenings, storytelling and performances around folk tales. Taking it’s title from an utopian medieval tale, the program gathers works of art that share an interest in these folkloric hyperbolas and curious topsy-turvy worlds, to consider the role of such narratives as triggers for reflection on the nature of earthly existence, as directives for social behaviour and transmission of knowledge.

Abner Preis performs The Mask Maker and the Tree, an appropriated chronicle about a group of villagers and their dispute with a tree from the nearby forest. While preparing for their annual spring festivities, the old tree confronts them with a voice of reason concerning their own pleasure and that of the world surrounding.

Priscila Fernandes will present her film Gozolândia (Cuckoo Land) that was commissioned for the 32nd São Paulo Biennial. Shot entirely at Ibirapuera Park, the film looks at notions of laziness and idleness by fictionalising the park as the Country of Cockaigne. It is an homage to the right to contemplation and relaxation, but also bearing the signs of the exploited and the pressures to perform in contemporary life.

Rieke Vos will read from the novella Illusions of a Frysian Landscape, based on a true account of the ventures of artist Eric Giraudet de Boudemange through Friesland. While delving into the local sports tradition of Fierljeppen (‘canal-vaulting’) he embarks on a series of weird and wonderful encounters, becoming increasingly enmeshed in the regional culture and getting to grips with the mysterious place of mankind within the universe.

Finally, in a surreal and joyful march, Arvo Leo’s Emperors of Ice Cream brings back the evanescent pleasures of life, the transience and enjoyment of its most vivid delights.
