Helicopter, Beatrijsstraat 10 Den Haag (Enter through the blue gate opposite Cafe Elta)
ArtScience bachelor 3rd year opens their intimate world of multi-sensorial exploration, pulling at tradition with varying pressure. To fasten means to make secure, but also to single out, to concentrate on. Let us be your guide in broadening the width of what you thought you could possibly perceive.
This self-initiated exhibition is made in collaboration with Helicopter; a collective of thirteen artists and musicians.

Experimental sound performance and part of an ongoing research to the sensorial experience of physical experiments, using a collection of self made and hacked electromagnetic and electronic instruments by Dewi de Vree.

////////// OORCONTACT + DANIELLE DAVIDSON
Electronic improvisation duo Oorcontact collaborates with visual artist Daniëlle Davidson. She draws and paints spontaneously using a variety of materials while Oorcontact instantly compose their music. Both image and music are purely improvised, and both are continuously reacting to one another in a constant dialogue.
“In our live performances a view of the paintings, filmed by a camera, is projected on a large surface both for the audience and the musicians. The imagery ranges from very abstract and very focused on the material itself (mostly in the case of paint, some of which is home-made) to very figurative and expressive (mostly in the case of pencils, crayons and markers).”
