Symposium: When you see me again, it won’t be me | Act 1 💭

[bodies are activated] The Grey Space is proud to introduce itself for the first time after a large-scale renovation with the first act of its ‘symposium of doubt’, in which the aim is to not only share, but to also facilitate (social) revelation by stimulating the most powerful characteristic of mankind: imagination.

You are cordially invited to this first act which explores movements as an extensive area of human experience. Philosopher Charles S. Peirce said that doubt instigates a desire to know or learn something. When the doubt is stronger than that what you believe is true, curiosity is triggered. You start to consciously use the desire to know more to redefine that what you thought was true. To end with an adjusted perception. It might change the way we look at ourselves; When you see me again, it won’t be me.

The performative event will embrace artistic installations, a conversation, a food experience and a music program. Participants:
• Lyndsey Housden (artist | tutor Interactive/Media/Design and researcher at the Design Lectorate, KABK | artist-in-residence at The Grey Space) in collaboration with Ryan Teague and Emily Besa
• David Abbink (Professor in Haptic Human-Robot Interaction at the Department of Cognitive Robotics and head of the Delft Haptics Lab, Delft University of Technology)
• Ria Higler (movement researcher, teacher and mentor at School for New Dance Development, AHK)
• Marijn de Langen (performing arts theorist and historian within diverse Dutch art educational institutions)

The project is supported by The Creative Industries Fund NL and the City of The Hague.

Blind Tape Quartets | Recording Sessions | Blind Tapes, Lukatoyboy

Blind Tape Quartets is a participative and chance dedicated limited tape release project. Record your 10 minutes and be a part of a surprising quartet!

A suggested guide to Blind Tape Quartets recordings:
– A 4-track tape recorder will be ready for you and 10 minutes of your performance.
– There will be a microphone and a line input option.
– Bring your own instrument (if you don’t have one, bring whatever you can).
– You will be unaware of the people who played before, or will be playing after you.
– Imagine that you are playing in a quartet, but you can’t hear others while recording your part. Think about your dynamics as a part of a quartet.
– Silence can be a special friend this time. Not everyone should be playing/talking/singing all the time (but the risk is up to you)
– If you are an electronic musician, try limit your output to a certain instrument, not the final mix (maybe you will not be the only one electronic musician in a quartet).
– If you are a writer, a singer, or a voice artist – prepare the text which can fit in 10 minutes.

Fascinating project… a 4-track variation on the Surrealist ‘exquisite corpse’” – The Wire: Adventures In Modern Music

Contact Blind Tapes to reserve a spot or drop by!

on Sunday July 7 there will be a live duo performance by Germaine Sijstermans and Lukatoyboy in the evening between 19:00h and 21:00h.

On the final day, Tuesday July 9 at 21:00h, all the recorded cassettes will be presented and offered as a very limited edition.

Germaine Sijstermans & Lukatoyboy

In the framework of the Blind Tape Quartets event at The Grey Space, Lukatoyboy (electronics, radios, voice, feedback)  has invited Germaine Sijstermans (clarinet, voice) to join him for a live duo performance.

Germaine Sijstermans is a clarinettist and composer. In her work influences of nature, indeterminate/silent music and butoh dance can be found. The spatial aspects in her compositions are an essential element in her work, both in the music itself as well as in the use of the performance space.

Lukatoyboy is a musician, sound artist and educator. His current practice is based on performances dealing with networks, sound and narrative, using walkie talkies and site specific topics. Focused on the relation of chances and structures, he creates participatory works with suggested rules, questioning exclusivity and the authority of an artist.

🌫 Ademruimte | Calm spaces 🌫

[in, and slowly out] A place to breathe in rest, contemplation and silence. Calm spaces initiated a new project called Ademruimte (breathing space) developed in collaboration with artists, designers, health professionals, urbanists and architects. The aim is to design a prototype of a public space for rest, contemplation and silence; something that is missing in modern urban environments. Book a session to experience this environment, in which sensor technology, light and sound design allows you to interact with the space through breathing.

The project is supported by The Creative Industries Fund NL and was developed in collaboration with The Grey Space.

Front Row: Donna Verheijden Trilogy 👀 Private Viewing + Artist Talk

[notification sounds] We Are Public’s Front Row presents a private viewing of the latest three videoworks of filmmaker and Sandberg graduate Donna Verheijden – paired with a talk with the artist herself. In her work, Donna Verheijden displays her understanding of mass and social media – centralizing on its seductions and underlying power structures. Handsome people, luxury and commercial-like lifestyles. A glossy decoy to something far more complex and dark – touching upon themes of hedonism, privacy and fixation. Donna makes us ask; sugar-sweet or rather sour-patched?

All the World’s a Stage – Ways of Seeing
Land of Desire – Happy is the New Black
Kiss the Sky – Eye Trick the I

Artist Talk by Donna Verheijden at 19:00.

Facebook Event for Museumnacht at The Grey Space

Releasing Off Center 005

Phrases and vocal snippets repeat their way through ‘used to be‘ like familiar mantras. Aaliyah, SWV and Whitney Houston sing their melancholic love songs over and over again on ghostly remains of once shiny and lush instrumentals. Blurred memories of late night phone calls, intimate moments, glances and conversations, are scattered over the pieces on Val Clipp’s second album on Off Center. 27 minutes of material on cassette and digital, first sold at the event.
