PRESENTS ALL | Openings Performance
WITH Alex Winters
During the performance ‘Too much detail’, Winters, dressed as a ballerina and entering the stage on a little boys dream -a blue cross bike- delivers us with a personal system of logical steps to develop a context. By posing and entering his own installation, a self-build wall that seems to be ripped from a piece of paper, with various objects and drawers, he starts drawing. A drawing made with graphite pencils; objects like a skull, a book, a bottle. A drawing of a rabbit on a piano which then created different levels of sound by using a home-made sequencer. Through the course of events showing us the way to get into his train of thought and slowly starting to appreciate how all these objects and gestures connect in his personal logic.

PRESENTS ALL | Artist Talk
WITH Aram Tanis | Natalia Ossef
Tanis and Ossef performed a public conversation about the common themes in their work. Tanis' method is multi disciplinary. Childhood memories play an important role in his photographs, sculptures and documentary work. His place of birth South Korea but particularly his childhood in Zeeland -a place drowned in memories about the North Sea flood of 1953- was inspirational for his recent projects. Where Aram tends to process or even erase certain memories, Natalia Ossef, born in Syria, tries to reconstruct a childhood that was never kept in photographs. Inspired by other people’s photo albums her paintings show a mixture of reconstructed memories and references to the current Syrian situation.
