• EXHIBITION | A Firefly Sits on an Electric Fence Reflecting on Light by Danielle Hoogendoorn & Jonathan van Doornum •
Curated by Rawad Baaklini & Tiiu Meiner
30 October - 21 November >> EXTENDED till 5th of December
Open Tue - Sat: 17:00 - 21:00
Free Entrance

A group of remarkable characters gather amongst peculiar contortions as the worlds of Danielle Hoogendoorn and Jonathan van Doornum collide.
An extraordinary trilogy is woven through three rooms as Hoogendoorn’s animals and van Doornum’s sharp compositions invite the audience to part-take in a contemporary allegory. Depicted through animal portraits, dramatic quilts and ceramic farm animal heads, Hoogendoorn captures striking sceneries of fable-like creatures alluding to a greater plot. These playful scenes are juxtaposed with the polished poetics of van Doornum’s installations. Metal and nature harmonise to reveal relatable myths that occur as mere consequences of existing. His antennas catch the essence of the future, past and present, and present them to us as plots to absorb.
Both artists suggest a much needed disruption in our linear lives, as they call to a reckoning the need to break out. Hoogendoorn’s work reminds us to ask what are the morals of our individual stories, while van Doornum frames a mythical tale that depicts us and escapes us until the end of time.

DANIELLE HOOGENDOORN
Hoogendoorn works with concepts of magical realism wherein animals are used as a gateway into aesthetic and critical self-exploration. Balancing between the boundary of kitsch and dark humour, Hoogendoorn uses ominous backgrounds with playful animal motifs to catch the audience’s attention. Portrayed in rather perilous settings, the animals engage in a representation of human activities. This unveils her simultaneous fascination with animals and their innocence, while questioning our own human (perhaps pompous) role in the world.

JONATHAN VAN DOORNUM
van Doornum’s work is mystical in its compositional qualities, while soberly sleek in its aesthetics. His work explores the pinnacle of when tangible transforms into intangible, and the otherworldly potentials of this point. His aluminium rods present themselves as lines through space-- present in their sturdy metal bodies yet delicate and acclimatizing to their surroundings. The poetics of his installations tell a narrative of ultimate truths; ones we can all relate to, and ones we will always experience.

CURATORS: RAWAD BAAKLINI & TIIU MEINER
Rawad Baaklini is a Rotterdam based Lebanese designer and curator and Tiiu Meiner is a Rotterdam based Estonian writer and curator. Together they combine techniques of poetry, institutional critique and story telling to create compelling narratives in their work.

• Workshop | Truly, Madly, Deeply - 2 days of an Ultra’s physical and audio experience•
2-day workshop series with Lavinia Xausa, Marta Wörner and Kiki Luitwieler
Saturday 5 December & Sunday 6 December
10:00 to 17:00 both days
This workshop is limited to 10 participants*
Participation is free: please apply by sending your motivations to participate to lavinia.x@live.it

please note: this workshop takes place at two different locations!

As part of the HCA 2020 program, resident artist Lavinia Xausa organises and hosts a series of events that allows both her audience and the artist to dive deeper into her practice. Spanning an ongoing research trajectory into the relationships between notions of cults and populism, the goal of this project is to further engage with these topics in both theoretical and practical sense.
Following the conversation event of 1 December [link], this 2-day workshop event will further explore Lavinia’s research in a physical and sound-based way. The two sessions will be led by choreographer Marta Wörner and professional musician Kiki Luitwieler.

*: By booking a ticket to this workshop you commit to participate in both sessions.

*Day 1: Movement workshop with Marta Wörner at TIME WINDOW*
5 December - 10:00 to 17:00
Location: Time Window, Teilingerstraat 120, Rotterdam

Working with very physical and concrete tasks, choreographer Marta Wörner aims to enrich Lavinia’s research starting from the body experience of the means and meaning of two broad concepts: togetherness and belonging.
Based on the understanding that the body has an inherent knowledge which is activated by experiencing and observing movement, this workshop will be constructed around the metaphorical image of the movement and kinetics of water as an element. Water can wrap and welcome the body, making it safe, but can also push it in a determined direction, like a wave the forces on to follow.
During this first day of the workshop, Marta will guide participants to individual and collective task-based improvisations. These exercises will produce the visual material to create an actual performance at the end of both workshop days.

*Day 2: Performance workshop with Kiki Luitwieler and Marta Wömer at ROODKAPJE*
6 December - 10:00 to 17:00
Location: Roodkapje, Delftseplein 39, Rotterdam

During the second day of the workshop, supervised by Marta Wörner and professional musician Kiki Luitwieler, the participants of day 1 will develop a live soundscape and choreography to produce a performance as final outcome of the workshop.

Inspired by the work and research of both Lavinia and Marta, Kiki will work together with the participants to produce a musical score that recalls the most evocative elements of the workshop: water, the crowd, the acts of supporting and demonstrating. With the use of a sound recorder and looping station, Kiki will record participants separately as she wil compose a live soundscape to be used and implemented during the performance.
The final performance is set to last around 5 minutes and will be professionally recorded.

PRACTICAL

Price is a band of contrasts, interchanging their songs with dreamy acid-saturated guitars, nightmarish doom-ridden walls of sound and sharp salvo-like riffs and drums. Operating as an exploration and outlet for the psychedelic side of Marnix Visscher’s songwriting, the Dutch outfit doesn’t always follow the footsteps of their 60’s and 70’s predecessors. Like with former band Korfbal, Visscher’s distinct vocals and singular knack for palatable melodies allow Price's music to shift and erupt in the most satisfying hyper-creative ways. Though the band has endured its fair share of lineup changes, it became clear that no matter the circumstances, Price in and of itself is a vessel for storytelling.

"Visscher’s unassuming, unhurried poise might be his foil in a small country like The Netherlands, where the ones who scream the loudest get the most rewards. But seriously, the dude is an absolute tour de force. Though Price features Visscher’s signature acidic squall and penchant for wiry hooks that always seem to stick, their bread and butter is restraint, steadiness, and depth, never getting too ahead of themselves. I hear a lot of sonic elements of The Stone Roses, Ulrika Spacek and Isn’t Anything-era My Bloody Valentine. But within the frame of Visscher’s melodic tendencies – turning frequent about-faces – Price is quite a unique little beast. " - Jasper Willems (Drowned In Sound)

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. Nora Turato and Jeroen Koolhaas) 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 or walk by the window of the HCA to see what they are working on.

Iriée Zamblé

• Iriée Zamblé •

Expressively painted heads of self-contained people of colour are playing the lead in Iriée Zamblé's work. Zamblé puts a magnifying glass upon some of the people that may pass us by daily. Acquaintances, passengers and friends therefore lay at the base of the painted heads. By appropriating details of their appearance, Zamblé shapes a new bold figure. The portrayed are depicted to present themselves as a norm in its variety. With her latest series ''The Default” Zamblé positions people of colour as a standard rather than an exception.

Danielle Hoogendoorn

 

• Danielle Hoogendoorn •

Danielle Hoogendoorn works impulsively and associative, and so is her use of materials. Based on her experiences, she tells her stories portrayed by her favourite animals. Animals play and important role in her life, as they are means to see how far she can go before the border between art and kitsch is crossed. Even though Daniëlle’s work appears sweet and girly at first sight, things are not always as peaceful as they seem. Through her direct approach she tries to take the formal character of painting, and the museum’s white wall out of account, looking to redefine these existing conventions with banality and humour.

Rafiq Abbasov

 

• Rafiq Abbasov •

Rafiq Abbasov is an emerging international artist from Azerbaijan. His work is staged around the understanding and meaning of time. In his perspective, time is the only variable that we, humans, have no control over. By accepting this fact, Rafiq fills this continuum with temporary multisensory experiences to both escape and explore a new meaning of the perception of time. One of his recent conclusions is the definition of playground: Playground as a counter-public space in public space. My works are in continuous search of (free) space human being can find, to define their own rules of understanding, away from controlled systems.

Lavinia Xausa

 

• Lavinia Xausa •

Lavinia Xausa (IT) works, lives and pretends to learn Dutch in Rotterdam. The center of her artistic practice consists in applying semiotics and sacred art research to an ongoing, participatory art practice, by involving groups of people on self analysis and auto-recognition of their own role in history. Shifting through different kinds of media, from photography to moving images, found footage, sound and text, from writing to performance, she aims to reframe the present in the light of ancient narratives well established in the collective memory.

FOEF

FOEF is a platform for the queer community based in Delft. They offer a space to come together and celebrate what it means to be out and proud. At the beginning of March 2019, FOEF flew over to Rotterdam to throw a fairytale-themed night at Roodkapje full of magical STARDUST, poisonous apples, glass STILETTOS and golden carriages. 

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.
