#8 To Be Determined

This summer, Marcel van den Berg, Kevin Osepa and Mirre Yayla Séur relocate their studios to Buro Stedelijk and generously invite us into their creative process. Together we explore artistic interventions that challenge modes of ‘exhibiting’, interaction and museological practices.

EN

(voor Nederlandse tekst scroll verder)

Buro Stedelijk welcomes the process out of the studio, into the project space. We occupy the space and observe what the interaction with the space could offer. We explore artistic interventions in the semi-public space. 

Often, exhibiting an artwork means freezing it in time. The work leaves the studio and is shown in a different setting. We defrost the artwork and let it develop in the project space.  

The start of this manifestation will not be a composed arrangement, but the beginning of an ongoing process. Van den Berg, Osepa and Séur work on and present their work as it lives, breathes and develops. Observing, shuffling, remixing, rehearsing and resting. They might add or remove along the way and experience what grows and what dies in these spaces. We collaboratively investigate the in-between space of artistic production and institutional presentation. At specific moments the artists organize moments to talk about or engage the public with their projects and process.

NL

Deze zomer verplaatsen Marcel van den Berg, Kevin Osepa en Mirre Yayla Séur hun studio’s naar Buro Stedelijk en nodigen ons uit in hun creatieve proces. Samen verkennen we artistieke interventies die manieren van ‘tentoonstellen’, interactie en museale praktijken bevragen.  

Buro Stedelijk nodigt het proces vanuit de studio uit in de projectruimte. We gebruiken de ruimte en observeren wat de interactie met deze ruimte ons kan bieden. We onderzoeken artistieke interventies in de semi-openbare ruimte. 

Vaak betekent het tentoonstellen van een kunstwerk dat het bevriest in de tijd. Het werk verlaat de studio en wordt in een andere omgeving getoond. We ontdooien het kunstwerk en laten het zich ontwikkelen in de projectruimte.  

Deze manifestatie zal niet starten met een statische opstelling, maar beginnen met een doorlopend proces. Van den Berg, Osepa en Séur werken en presenteren hun werk terwijl het leeft, ademt en zich ontwikkelt in de Central Space van Buro Stedelijk. Ze observeren, schudden, remixen, repeteren en rusten. Ze kunnen gaandeweg toevoegen of verwijderen en ervaren wat in deze ruimtes groeit en sterft. We onderzoeken de ruimte tussen artistieke productie en institutionele presentatie. Op specifieke momenten organiseren de kunstenaars manifestaties om het publiek verder te betrekken bij hun projecten en processen.
