Things you threw in the gully
An exhibition of works by Adam Patterson
Free Entrance
Exhibition runs from 10 - 26 May

“Nothing the forest raises is a monster.”

– Shivanee Ramlochan, “Duenne Lorca” (2018)

You are warmly invited to “Things You Threw in the Gully”, an exhibition of works by Adam Patterson that will open on 10 May at Roodkapje Rotterdam. Crawling with things hidden, cared for, forgotten or denounced, do you trust the gully to keep your secrets safe?

A refuge or burial for shifty things and shifting stories, it’s not certain what may find you in the gully. Whether wanderers on the move, vagrants on the run or just ramblers passing through, you are invited to bear witness to “Things You Threw in the Gully” and its inhabitants, whose stories have been raised in the wilderness.

Adam Patterson
Adam Patterson is an artist and writer, currently one of the arists in residence of the Hamburger Community of Art. Adam 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. He 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.

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?

Mile me deaf
Wolfgang Möstl has slowly shifted from his underground-guitar-freak reputation to a pop-producer working with Austria's finest. When he's not recording with artists from wide-ranging genres, working on film- and theater scores or on the road with numerous bands, Wolfgang puts his creative output in Mile Me Deaf - his longtime solo project with which he has done countless records and tours through Europe and the United States.

On his last album "HDD Backup" Wolfgang has traded in his signature noisey guitars for dubbed basses, a sample-pad and psychedelic sounding vintage synthesizers. A kaleidoscopic sounding album with hints of trip-hop, new age and pop. Performed live with Tapeloops and Samples, and backed-up by live drums.

Warming
Trading in a white picket fence for living out of a van, synthpop artist Brady Allard is the multi-instrumentalist behind Winnipeg’s Warming. His music began to take form of an obsession when he left his job, his house and his partner of a decade. While living out of a van, he wrote the 12 song LP - a lush, driving mix of twisted synth noises, lonely arrangements and memories of his former life.
Debut album "Warming" out on April 2019.

On the occasion of North Sea Round Town, Roodkapje Rotterdam will have an infinite jazz session on Saturday 29 June.

Drench yourself in infinite jazz and get carried away by charismatic duo Into the Wind and experimental free / atmospheric jazz quartet M.I.L.D.

Into the wind
Into The Wind explores the interplay of stillness and space with spirited wonder, inviting the audience to listen into each little sound. Into the wind is an ambient duo based in Amsterdam consisting of Robin Engelhard and Andrius Dereviancenko.

M.I.L.D.
If you've ever had a lucid dream, you'll know that the boundaries between wakefulness and sleep suddenly become very delicate as you balance on the edge of extraordinary possibilities and normal physical reality, once you realize that you are in fact, dreaming. The music of M.I.L.D is rife with these thoughts and feelings - the name itself spelling out 'Mnemonic Induction of Lucid Dreaming'. Fronted by double bassist Donatas Bielunskis, this experimental/free/atmospheric jazz quartet explores the different elements of jazz to create a very unique sound.

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. 

HCA artists in residence 2019

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

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).

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.
