the shudder of the duration

Seven artists on the phenomena of time and space; painters, photographers and sculptors, brought together by guest curator Gerard de Kleijn. The seven artists have an antenna for the unfinished past tense and a seventh sense for the dizziness of space.
De kunstwerken lijken te verwijzen naar een andere orde ver weg, naar een andere tijd die wellicht nog moet komen of al geweest is. Natuurkundigen zouden het noemen: Ruimtetijd, een vierde dimensie.

"Give each other space, take time," says comedian Freek de Jonge. Escape, unwind, disrupt, discover, unfold, reveal, receive. Receptivity. Poet Peter Handke calls it 'attention'. Poet Rutger Kopland calls it 'emptiness.'

In his selection, the guest curator has looked for works of art that broadens one's view, that for a brief moment switch off the dictatorship of the clock; works of art that one does not immediately know to address. Not exclamation marks, but question marks, space signs, traces of time.
The title of the exhibition is derived from Peter Handke's Poem on Duration..

Artists Annemieke Alberts, Wim Biewenga, Ron Jagers, Jolanda Meulendijks, Sally Pittman, Maarten Slagboom, Billie Slagboom, Choi Wong; guest curator Gerard de Kleijn
