Opening 1 April, Nulde, Utrecht.

Art Rotterdam, Rotterdam (NL) 10.02.2016 – 14.02.2016

C&H art space is proud to present at Art Rotterdam:
The installation Odd One Out by Erik de Bree and Wouter Klein Velderman.

At Art Rotterdam, C&H art space presents Odd One Out, an encounter between the works of Erik de Bree and Wouter Klein Velderman. Both artists let their materials lead the way. Without any preconceived plans, they build up the material layer for layer, only to break them down again. What happens if you cut, tear or burn a part? How much command does that allow the artist over the resulting image? And how much destruction can an image take? In this confronting installation, the artists see how far they can push the boundaries.

Art Rotterdam, Van Nelle Fabriek, Main Section, booth #8.
Opening: Wednesday 10 February, 18:00 to 22:00 hrs.
Hours: Thursday 11 February through Sunday 14 February, from 11:00 to 19:00 hrs.
Extra opening hours: Friday 12 February from 18:00 to 21:00 hrs.

SPAZIOBORGOGNO, Milan, IT, 26.11.2015 – 23.02.2016

Squadron Me is the second solo show by Dutch artist Wouter Klein Velderman, following his first exhibition in Italy at our gallery, Speed of culture… in 2012. Klein Velderman will present three series of new works: Revolting Mass, Squadron Me and Now It Can Rain.

The three reproductions of the first World War fighting planes that form the work Revolting Mass represent one of the first machines that could fight enemies from the sky. Eventhough these historical artifacts are already a hundred years old, they seem to be more relevant than ever. If you extend the timeline of these creatures of deconstruction to the present you’ll be facing many complex political situations all over the world where they are still being used. The contemporary air force industry runs from the Joint Strike Fighter program to unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones.

VAART, Alkmaar (NL) 30.08.2015 – 25.10.2015

VAART 2015 toont monumentale kunst op één van de mooiste plekken van Alkmaar: Het Bolwerk tussen het stadskantoor en de Molen van Piet. In de lucht, tussen de bomen, en in het water verschijnen tijdelijke kunstwerken waarvan twee speciaal voor de gelegenheid én de locatie gemaakt.

Tussen de Bergerbrug en het stadskantoor spant Chiel Kuijl een netwerk van touwen, waaraan en waarin, als een kleine vloot, witte zeilen zweven. Alsof het waterpeil 10 meter gestegen is.

Leonard van Munster, onder meer bekend van het jacht Fortuna dat in het financiële hart aan de Zuidas schipbreuk heeft geleden, neemt het water voor zijn rekening.
Om, in en tussen de bomen is werk te zien van André Pielage, Florentijn Hofman, Wouter Klein Velderman en Sander Rood. De beelden die al in het het park staan worden opnieuw onder de aandacht gebracht.

De Nederlandsche Bank, Amsterdam, NL, 16.10.2014-28.11.2014

Joanneke Meester reflects on the necessity of the things we tend to impose on ourselves and one another in everyday life. In search of something to go by, she formulated the statement ‘I am not doing anything until I feel the need’. Meester invited 365 artists to convert their personal interpretations of the statement into an image for inclusion in a daily calendar, designed to confront users day in, day out with the mantra ‘I am not doing anything until I feel the need’.
This conceptual and collaborative artwork will be available in bookshops and museum shops in the Netherlands and Belgium from September 2014 and can be ordered online via: http://www.bekkingblitz.com

Related exhibitions: I am not doing anything until I feel the need.
The exhibitions presents an overview of almost all original works that were included in the calendar.

17 Oct – 28 Nov. De Nederlandsche Bank, Amsterdam.
