Article about my research and work in progress:

Together with a group of artists, makers and designers I will participate in How do we save time where we will explore and reflect on current and changing perceptions of time.

During the residency I will be researching the possibility of an alternative model using a perspective on technology that is not driven by efficiency and with a different use of time that is closer to natural processes and human experiences of time.

For the exhibition In No Particular Order I will be presenting a new version of The Monads.

Also you can listen to a sequence of collective conversations from the participants where we reflect on topics and issues concerning our day-to-day practice. http://talent.stimuleringsfonds.nl/2016/

A sound recording of my installation the Monads will be part of Audio DH – sonic manifestations from 250 creators from The Hague, initiated by Francisco Lopez.

 

 

The Monads at Kunstschouw – Pannekoekenmolen, Burgh-Haamstede
In addition, I will be showing some light studies that I developed at DordtYart last year.

These consist of (found) photographs, prints and collages.
Also, I’ve been nominated for the Kunstschouw award for young artists!

 

Together with a group of artists and scientists I’m working on the jumping power plant project where I research the artistic possibilities of generating light with alternative sources of energy. For the upcoming Hope Step Japan! event we will present a prototype that lights up a mini version of a galaxy by jumping. Also, we will demonstrate a variety of different generating methods and you can actually try this out for yourself!

 

4 – 31 January 2016

Open studio:
12/13/14/16/17 January
19/20/21/24 January
26/27/28 January from 12.00 – 16.00

 

From July until September I will be doing a residency at Dordtyart where I continue my research on complex systems and chaotic processes. Also I’m curious how daylight will influence my work.

In the meantime you can follow my process on my blog: http://rillsnorthdeepthrum.tumblr.com/

Within the context of the Ondertussen presentation Sukebeningen, Nishiko and me will give an insight in our ideas and working process of Glinting honey in the dark, a feather tickling on my back, an installation that we created last year at Quartair Contemporary Arts, Initiatives in the Hague.
In the Ondertussen space we show a selection of used objects, material and sounds. In addition we present a video documentation of the original installation.

Off to Japan! ‘))))) repetition at my distance’ will have its Asian debut at TodaysArt Japan edition ZERO at Warehouse Terrada Tennoz in Tokyo.

After traveling around for two years ))))) repetition at my distance will return to the Hague again to be part of the Voyage Fantastique tour organized by Shoot me. An inspiring journey that takes you through the Hague’s every day secrets augmented by film, music and theater.

I’m very happy to announce the premiere of my new installation Red Horizon at TodaysArt festival in the Hague.

An installation by: Nishi Ko, Gabey Tjon a Tham & Sukebeningen

In April-May I will be away for a residency at MoTA (Museum of Transitory Arts) in Ljubljana to work on some prototypes for a new installation. I will present my findings during a presentation on Monday 19th of May at 19.00.

These experiments are part of a wider research about the emergence of group and complex behavior. How can the group transcend the individual and how does it takes effect in space and time? What does the audience experiences? Do new meanings arise? In this way I would like to explore new possibilities of expressions in light, sound and movement.

I will continue developing these prototypes towards a first version of an installation that will premiere at the TodaysArt festival 2014 in September.

In the meantime you can follow the process on my blog http://rillsnorthdeepthrum.tumblr.com/

 
 

 

The exhibition Lucida Space has been featured on Москва24 TV including a small interview with me.

 
 

On the 12th of December I will be showing an earlier version of my installation ‘))))) repetition at my distance’ at Steim’s Winter party. It consists of five short pieces for three light wires that explore various connections between light, sound, movement and associations; as individuals and as a group.

During ‘Here we live and now’ in Korzo, The Hague, you can also look through the book that I made during the creative process of making the stage design for ‘Le jeune homme et la mort’. It contains elements, texts and inspiration that re-occurred during our meetings. They explore thoughts on transitions, transcendental and temporary spaces.

 

For the past months I’ve been working on the stage design together with MC Dance Meyer-Chaffaud for their new piece‘Le jeune homme et la mort’. We just finished our three days of montage and looking forward to the premiere on the 18th of October. For touring dates see website Dansclick and Here we live and now.

 

‘))))) repetition at my distance‘ will join an immersive exhibition in ‘La Halle Grenette’ together with the works of Joshua Kirsch, David Letellier and Mathieu Rivier.

 

From 27th until – 30th of November ‘))))) repetition at my distance’ will be shown at the Kino Šiška during the Sonica festival in Ljubljana. In the evening of the 29th I will also be doing a presentation at the Symposium.

Next stop will be GLOW in Eindhoven. ‘))))) repetition at my distance’ will be located at the Klokgebouw, which is part of the GLOW-S program.
