A residency-masterclass with the aim of creating an exhibition together that transcends the individual.
At the beginning of artisthood, there is still room to work towards the future and to give form to your artistic practice. Simultaneously, the pressure of getting your diploma is gone, and a sense of purposelessness raises its head. This is the time to start determining who you want to be and what you want to do with your life and work.
In this edition of Spacemakers, counselling artist Evi Vingerling wants to give you the opportunity to create – together with other artists – something meaningful for your artistic development. You are given the space to work ambitiously, to experience the freedom of being an artist, and to feel out the right way to practice your profession. As a group, you can generate energy together and you can take more risks. It is an exceptional opportunity to intensively work together and on location, and we are looking for artists who can and want to be present at the work-and-living-space in the gallery as much as possible.
The residency period is from 29 August to 30 September. During this period, the exhibition space of Gallery Pouloeuff will function as a joint working and living space. At the end of the working period, you and the other artists will set up an exhibition here with the work you made during the masterclass. The opening will take place on Sunday the 2nd of October. During this opening, you will have the opportunity to tell the visitors more about the work you made and what you learned during this period.
With her paintings, Evi Vingerling (1979) creates abstracted representations of the world she perceives around her. Daily life offers an endless stream of sounds, ideas, and visual impressions. She strips these everyday observations of everything that can be named. What remains – the sensation – is put on the canvas. Her loose brushstrokes often remind us of elements from the world of flora, with exaggerated colours and hard contrasts.
Her work can be found in the collections of the Boijmans van Beuningen, Bonnefantenmuseum, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, among others. And in the corporate collections of Akzo Nobel, ING Bank, Rabobank Ahold, among others. Her work is presented in the Netherlands and abroad.
There is no registration fee for participation in the residency-masterclass Spacemakers #5. However, material and travel costs are to be paid by the artist. There is a limited budget for the installation of the exhibition.
