Mood Ring; the final exhibition of the HCA 2019
Exhibition | 7 - 22 December
Opening times | Wed.-Sun. | 12:00 - 20:00
Free Entrance

With Clementine Edwards, Mylan Hoezen, Jeisson Drenth, Vlada Predelina, and Adam Patterson

Roodkapje and the Hamburger Community of Art are proud to present Mood Ring: a constellation of new works by the five artists that together formed the inaugural Hamburger Community of Art: Clementine Edwards, Mylan Hoezen, Jeisson Drenth, Vlada Predelina, and Adam Patterson. Mood Ring is the last exhibition of this year’s residents, and is set to not only reflect on that past year, but also to look forward to the future of these five bright artists.

"A highly sophisticated technology makes its way into our family, and later into the palm of my hand. I take it with me and keep it close. Like the emo rings of yesteryear, it evokes tides and emotions. There’s a space in the elliptical title to project one’s own ideas onto. (Blue can mean relaxed as well as emotionally charged.)
We kids climbed these like trees and used them for games, they were the real social epicentres.

Over the last year various temperatures have been experienced, resulting in the residents wearing a ray of colours on their journey. Paint peeling off revealing the iridescence of old layers of blue, red, green, yellow, and eventually…rust. When the hurricane comes, it won’t matter what held your community together or apart. What will you hold on to? What will you let go?

For better or worse, just feel as much as you can; I won’t stop you. To encourage you to feel is to bring out the moist in you. So, by all means, show yourself - in all your colours."

Hamburger Community of Art
The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong development program for emerging artists based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

Event | Link

In January RAUW brings an evening full of weird sounds, rock-hard grooves and exciting improvisations to Roodkapje!

The line-up consists of four Rotterdam bands, FAST D, The Celestial Turkey, Soil Painting and ROEST that show that musicians in 010 are averse to being labeled. They break down the walls of conformism between jazz, rock and electronics. The guitar riffs, synth sounds and solid beats have found their way to jazz. Improvisation, the core of jazz, is retained, but the tools have been renewed.

RAUW is the release of the new EP from the band ROEST, entitled "Inloopmuziek". Band leader and drummer Ruud Voesten did not merely want to present his own work. He also wanted to show the scene where his music is embedded. Moreover, he was looking for an alternative, creative and raw setting that matches that scene and their sound. With partner in crime Jazz International Rotterdam, Ruud made a shortlist of bands and made a tour of Rotterdam to find the most suitable location. It became RAUW, and it became Roodkapje: a mini-festival full of front runners from the Rotterdam jazz scene!

Roodkapje offers a unique art programme, an exhibition space and an artistic development program in downtown Rotterdam.

Our art program is dynamic, surprising and multi-voiced at heart. Exhibitions, workshops, installations, talks, performances, experiments and the new Hamburger Community of Art residency form the basis of our 2019 programme. Whether it’s making Russian dumplings, performing a group choreography, creating face masks or indulging in a jelly fruit performance - you can engage in our public art program in many, many ways.

The Hamburger Community of Art artists-in-residence and the various art programmers are the ones who have the strongest say in the development of Roodkapje’s art programme. They determine the content and shape of the many activities that are being organized throughout the year and, thereby, are an integral part of Roodkapje. Without them, Roodkapje would not be the same.

If you are looking for unconventional, experimental yet accessible art, then Roodkapje is the place for you.

Hamburger Community of Art

Read more about the HCA residency program and artists below

With the Hamburger Community of Art residency program, Roodkapje takes a new direction in terms of the presentation, talent support and development within its art program. The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is a yearlong artistic development program for emerging artists. During this pilot year, Roodkapje aims to equip the selected artists – as well as the audience – with skills to be resourceful and self-sufficient in assembling diverse voices through training, mentoring (by a.o. Rory Pilgrim and Nada van Dalen) and with support in organizing events, presentations and workshops. The HCA will produce and host cultural events, social activities and projects that will be open to all audiences. 

The HCA is based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. Questions we need to ask ourselves are: What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?

Please keep an eye on our website and the HCA instagram page to join in on the HCA public program! Or walk by the window of the HCA to see what they are working on.

The Hamburger Community of Art Open Call 2020 is now closed. Interested in a yearlong residency at Roodkapje? Keep an eye on our website and our HCA program to learn more. 

Vlada Predelina

Vlada Predelina has a strong interest in community-led housing. Through her work, she researches what the role of the artist can be in decision making, using hands-on process in materials like paint, ceramics and pattern-making. Through this, the artist believes that the methods of collective working and thinking open up discussions and new ways of thinking about home and housing. Vlada Predelina is currently developing workshops, ceramic objects and digital work which she combines with embroidery and video. She took part in School of the Damned, a year-long alternative art course directed by its students. Vlada graduated from Kingston University (London) and took part in various projects and workshops. Her work has been shown in a.o. SET (London), Sir Peter Blake Gallery (Dartford) and East Bristol Contemporary (Bristol).

Jeisson Drenth

Jeisson Drenth is a video artist and designer dedicated to making experimental and meaningful contributions to contemporary visual culture. His studies in graphic design (Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam) piqued and nurtured his interests in network culture and semiotics, and motivated him to make these subjects the driving force behind his creative practice. His ongoing research translates to both commissioned and self-initiated projects which are shared with a wide audience in different online and offline experiences. Since the founding of his studio in 2013, Jeisson has worked internationally on live shows and design projects for cultural organisations, night clubs and festivals such as M HKA (Museum of Modern Art Antwerp), Together Festival (Boston), Vision (Ghent, Berlin), Amsterdam Dance Event (Amsterdam), Atlas Electronic (Marrakesh), NEXUS Europe Summit (Rotterdam), Untitled (Toronto) and La Bacchanale (Montréal).

Clementine Edwards

Clementine Edwards came to art through jewelry and her work expanded to sculpture and installation. Edwards works with materials that are sourced from people she encounters via meaningful social interactions. Clementine is currently working within two artistic frameworks. First, she investigates ’material as kin’, which emerges from her research into the material traces of social experience, particularly trauma. Second, she investigates the ‘story chain’, which is her own extrapolation and counter-proposition to the abstracted violence of supply-chain capitalism. Clementine Edwards holds a masters from the Dutch Art Institute, and a BFA (Gold &  Silversmithing) from RMIT, Melbourne. She had solo exhibitions and projects at Rib (Rotterdam), West Space (Melbourne) and Te Uru (Auckland). Her work is included in group shows in a.o. Galerie van Gelder (Amsterdam), the Tblisi Triennial (Tblisi) and Brunswick Sculpture Center (Brunswick).

Adam Patterson

Adam Patterson is an artist and writer. He investigates the processes of how stories, images and conditions of being gazed at affect the emergence of one’s selfhood, self-determinacy and right to opacity. Patterson developed a practice of telling new stories or rethinking old stories in new recuperative ways, working across a variety of media including mask-making and masquerade, video, critical writing, poetry and performance. He graduated from Central Saint Martins (London, UK) in 2017. His works and performances were showed at a variety of events and projects such as Jerwood Visual Arts (London, UK), the Barbados Museum & Historical Society (Bridgetown, BB), Tate Modern Switch House (London, UK) and Winterwolven V (Roodkapje Rotterdam).

Mylan Hoezen

Mylan Hoezen’s work centers around endurance and self-confrontation. He expresses these themes from within and shares them as a solo artist while inviting others to collaborate. The performances allow a high state of consciousness to be reached by the performer. His work comes from a desire for harmony in a world filled with noise. Hoezen’s performances always have a polarizing nucleus; they are either highly energized or totally passive. After graduating from Minerva Academy (Groningen), Mylan Hoezen traveled to San Francisco for a three month residency at SAFEhouse Arts. This organization mainly focuses on choreographers and dancers. Hoezen had performances and projects in a.o. Gasunie (Groningen), Showroom MAMA (Rotterdam), BUT Film Festival (Breda) and VHDG (Leeuwarden).

King Sepi

King Sepi is an independent Rotterdam-based live platform, founded in 2013 by local promoter Laura Hofman. After initially focusing on Finnish artists, Hofman – a Finland native living in Holland for 11 years – now books and organizes intimate live shows by artists who typically harness an unconventional, outlier creative streak that isn’t easily pigeonholed.

Diversity in both sound and context is key: since the platform’s inception, King Sepi hosted and booked the likes of Liima (Denmark/Finland), Jessica Moss (Canada), Ceremony (USA), White Wine (USA/Germany), Žen (Croatia), Fai Baba (Switzerland), Vök (Iceland), Hater (Sweden), and many many others, showcasing a keen focus on bands from outside of the Anglo-American musical sphere.

King Sepi is a place where exciting bands, both home and abroad, often enter the Rotterdam circuit for the first time. In addition, it puts strong emphasis on devious music from Dutch soil, convening both the local and global elements towards an exciting, unpretentious house show atmosphere, one that fuels the whims of artists who are willing to take risks on stage.

At FOEF, you do not have to dress in a certain way, talk about certain things, dance in a certain way and love in a certain way. You can dress/talk/dance and love however and whoever you want! So you don’t have to be gay to join: the more diversity, the better!

Join this queer initiative next time for a non-conformative art, music and fun party.
