Opening every moment a junction13 May 2022 19:00 / @Nest
We would like to invite you to the festive opening of ‘every moment a junction’ on Friday, May 13th from 7 pm to 11 pm at Nest. The group exhibition is on view from 13th of May until 31st of July.
At 8 pm, sWitches opens the exhibition with their performance fl0wr@liå. With this dance performance the artist collective activates the work that is created during their Intimate Sonic tECkhnO-craft workshop. The new sound sculpture in the form of a maypole functions in the context of the exhibition as a sonic archive for stories that redefine what the terms fertility, intimacy and sexuality can mean.
7pm – doors open
7:45pm – words of welcome

The artists in the exhibition every moment a junction present their urgent need for encounter, intimacy and collectivity. Together, the artworks fearlessly respond to the consequences of the individualistic society and appeal for action and a change of mentality.
every moment a junction invites you to follow the various trails to the heart of the exhibition, the ‘coven’. By working with or from wxtchcraft*, rituals, magic, and alchemical practices, the artists explore and shape other ways of being together. Their multidisciplinary practices move between virtual and earthly environments, draw on non-linear narratives, and integrate elements from LARP-games (‘live action role-playing’).
More information on the extensive context program, involving workshops, performances and reading groups, will follow here soon.
This group exhibition is curated by Nest together with melanie bonajo, Orlando Maaike Gouwenberg and Erika Sprey as advisor. At the same time, melanie bonajo and Orlando Maaike Gouwenberg present ‘When the body says Yes’ at the Venice Biennale. The immersive video installation is part of bonajo’s ongoing research into the current status of intimacy in the commodity driven world.
* The exhibition is the physical translation of the extensive virtual program of the Studium Generale cycles ‘Wxtch Craft’ (2020-2022) at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. View the entire program here and read more about Wxtch Craft https://www.kabk.nl/studium-generale/wxtchcraft
