The Story Within and Beyond

'THE STORY WITHIN AND BEYOND'

Opening exhibition program Feb - Jun 2018

 

'The Story Within and Beyond 'examines the manifestation and the potential of a “narrative” from various perspectives and throughout different media. It takes place from February until June and brings four duo exhibitions and two performances of mainly Hague young emerging artists. It's See Lab's aim to offer the new project space to artists of different disciplines so they can experiment and create new works or develop the existing ones in relation to the See Lab exhibition space or the surrounding Hague Beach. The exhibitions and the performances will be accompanied by artists' talks, workshops, and a poetry reading.

Part I: HISTORIAE
Tommy de Moor, Roman Ermolaev
February 2nd- February 18th       

OPENING: Friday, February 2nd, 19:00 h
ARTIST TALK: Friday, February 16th, 20:00 h
Open: Fri -  Sun - 13:00 - 17:00 h

Ermolaev and De Moor approach the subject of history on various levels, with very layered artworks and a high demand for aesthetics as the outcome. In their works history is juxtaposed with the contemporary society, art history with contemporary visual arts, and finally, they transform different kinds of historical or literary narratives into interdisciplinary art installations by combining different kinds of techniques such as 16mm film and digital media and also Pepper's ghost (Ermolaev) or enfleurage and mummification (De Moor).

Part II: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY
Barbara de Morree & Elske Verdoorn
March 2nd- March 18th
OPENING: Friday, March 2nd, 19:00 h
WORKSHOP: March 9th, 17:00 h

Open: Fri -  Sun - 13:00 - 17:00 h

This exhibition focuses on the „personal narrative of others.“ With the strong sense of ethics, the artists Barbara De Morree and Elske Verdoorn are giving a voice to special, anonymous Hague persons, erasing the boundaries between the persona of the observing artist and the persona of her inspiration. In these uncommon cases the objects of inspiration become subjects. This time the artists will create new works or investigate the existing ones from different perspectives, especially for the See Lab exhibition space.

Part III: REMOTE PASSAGES
Annija Muižule & Katarina Petrović

April 6th- April 22nd
Open: Fri - Sun - 13:00 - 17:00 h

Both Annija Muižule and Katarina Petrović use impersonal narratives in the interdisciplinary way in order to create an interplay within different media and to criticize the capitalist techno-marketing society. In a dystopian way Petrović uses J.L. Borges Two English poems (1934) as the input text to deconstruct the language and to decipher Jupiter planetary emissions, and Muižule transforms the visual medium of photography into textual exploration of existential image culture.

Part IVb:  ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE
May 30th- June 1st
Natalie Fyfe & Ymke Vertelman
Open: Fri - Sun - 13:00 - 17:00 h

This exhibition (Nienke Sikkema, Emilie Ruitinga) and the performance program (Natalie Fyfe, Ymke Vertelman) focus on “the stage” as a possible place for telling stories, whether as an inner world stage or as an outer (public) world stage, whether as a voyeur or an extrovert sharing oneself with the public. It also examines the human body and its encounter with an intimate and public space as the means of creating possible and impossible narratives. For the performance program the artists will further develop their existing projects to correlate with the See Lab project space.

'Wat er eigenlijk allemaal gebeurt.'
Evelien geeft met haar werk uitdrukking aan een gevoel van desoriëntatie. In een grotendeels door wetenschap en technologie gestuurde wereld ziet zij hoe de mensheid steeds verder en steeds sneller evolueert. Het idee van de mens als een reiziger in de tijd is iets wat haar fascineert, maar tegelijkertijd ook een zekere angst oproept. Haar kunst is bedoeld om de kijker even stil te laten staan en te reflecteren op zijn positie in het hier en nu.

'7 verschijningen' toont een onderzoek naar het werken met sculpturale maskers, rekwisieten, kleding en gebaar, 'geïnspireerd door het Japanse Noh-theater.
Het is een studie voor ‘De optocht’ een voorstelling die in februari in Korzo (DenHaag) in premiere zal gaan. 
In deze voorstelling staat het gelijknamige gedicht van Toon Tellegen centraal. 
Dit gedicht is het gesproken kader waarbinnen de 7 verschijningen onderzocht worden.
