The sensitivity towards language, humour and the banality of the everyday are central topics in the exhibition 7 year old me. Nest shows Wim T. Schippers and Daniël van Straalen in a unique collaboration. In a playful, but serious manner, they attach value to seemingly worthless things. By disrupting existing, albeit invisible codes, the artists throw you back onto your own intuition, in which the anti-climax triumphs.
Today’s world can be experienced as very fluid. Nothing is fixed, everything is in motion. This hybrid, unstable world serves as a point of departure for the artists in ‘Fluid Desires’.
This winter Nest and the Electriciteitsfabriek present VOLTA, where artist Oscar Peters will build a lively world where popular entertainment and macabre spectacles are applauded.
