Richtje Reinsma – Productexperience6 Sep 2019 20:00 / Kunstwerk@Nest
Richtje Reinsma writes, draws and makes installations and performances. Often everyday vulnerable and intimate experiences form her point of departure, derived from her own existence as well as that of others.
Nest and Mister Motley invited Reinsma to create an audio work for MYBODY. COM, inspired by Hans Ulrich Obrist’s book ‘do it: the compendium’ (2013), a collection of instructions from various artists for performances and visual art. Based on the suspicion that her possessions instruct her on a daily basis – some of which are particularly powerful – Reinsma creates the Product Experience series, which develops over the course of the exhibition, the first part of which was created in response to the iPhone, which is also one of the possible playback media for the work.
A turbulent object meditation led Reinsma to Peter Handke’s ‘talk piece‘ Publikumsbeschimpfung from 1966, a play text (or anti-play text) that appeared to have something to say to her about the human-smartphone relationship. Reinsma selected and edited a number of fragments and wrote on, starting from them.
