+Ultras: Puck Schot at V2_

  • April 3, 2017 - April 28, 2017
    12:00 pm - 11:55 pm

From April 3rd, upcoming Rotterdam-based artist Puck Schot will be developing her work  in V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media for a month, whilst Roodkapje finishes its new exhibition space at Delftseplein 39. After a month of exploration in V2_, Puck will join Roodkapje there.

Puck Schot recently graduated from the KABK in Den Haag. She sprung into her artist career during Roodkapje’s first outdoor festival; Root Camp in 2016. Puck has transformed media and film to interactive installations and performances. She has experimented with hip-hop, film and performance and uses a combination of home-video style footage shot on holidays in combination with stock-footage animations and voice-overs. She uses personal dialogues from her diary to transform them into reflective speeches that serve as an opening and a possible ending towards the video and in-between objects.

Roodkapje is excited to present Puck Schot in our program and provide her with the infrastructure to develop her interest in media, installations, film and performance. She is a charismatic character and has fresh creativity to offer to the audience. During her development stage, Puck will be working at V2_Unstable Media. This is Roodkapje’s second collaboration with V2_ after last year’s ‘Reality✓Check’. Afterwards, Puck will move in with Roodkapje, where she will present her final work called “hope upon a wishing wound” as a solo-exhibition.


Roodkapje’s motto +Ultras represents art as a dynamic action, manifesting the cross-over of disciplines to connect and promote talent. We dedicate our future towards the + as an open community of ambitious artistic pioneers. Visit our exhibitions, openings, concerts, events and performances.

Roodkapje is en route towards new horizons, from a central new location, with various new programs. Introducing the era of +Ultras. During which our entire community is gathered together. As Roodkapje, Burgertrut and SUB become one, so will our program(s).

Our first +Ultras-program features a series of 9 individual exhibitions and performances by artists from Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Den Haag, Brussels, London and Riga. Each artist is challenged to develop a work linked to a performance aspect. The artists can experiment in their own field and link it to a format of performance. The 9 artists, highlighted in 9 months.

 

The program will continue, with the next +Ultra artist in the development stage. Each artists gets the opportunity to develop a work from scratch and present it at our new location.
