Can you live my space? From 3 till 26 November the exhibition Can You Live My Space? presents the works of 12 artists that participated in the Artist in Residence program of Witte Rook between 2017 and 2022. In this exhibition, curated by Cristina Materassi, the works of Anna Püschel (Gent), Bruno De Marco (Berlijn), Emmie Liebregts (Breda), Fenna Koot (Breda), Hussel Zhu (Rotterdam), Jui-Tsz Shiu (Taipei), Karina Beumer (Antwerpen), Loran van de Wier (Tilburg), Margot Zweers (Ospel), Simon Whetham (Bristol), Ying Liu (Rotterdam), Yuk Kan Yeung (Breda) are presented.
The exhibition reflects on the concept of space both from a physical and conceptual point of view; it is an attempt to rethink exhibition space not as static but as experimental, for collective reflection. It is a journey that aims to offer a more intimate look at places, engaging the objects, gestures and habits of strangers in the same place. It offers a path with no particular direction between three very different spaces that become one with their surroundings, unified by the characteristic of being places that can be inhabited by everyone, temporarily. The works of the artists will be seen in the two venues in Breda to be brought together in the virtual exhibition space in a way to interact with the specifics of each venue to create a narrative for contemporary art to be presented in a contemporary way.
During the opening, two performances by artist Ying Liu and artist Bruno de Marco in collaboration with Kira-Lily Marshall will be presented. During the finissage there will be a performance by Hussel Zhu. The exhibitions will be open to the public from Nov. 4 to 26, from 1 to 5 PM.
