A Grey Space Weekend - 22 + 23 November

A two-day event that aims to instigate your doubt with artistic installations, a performative symposium, music, performances, film screenings, food and drinks. You will experience The Grey Space inside out, from dusk til dawn. Over the weekend current projects are presented and provided with context, network and reflection.

Symposium | When you see me again, it won't be me (Act II)

The Grey Space is proud to announce the second act of its symposium series ‘When you see me again it won’t be me’. Operating on the intersection of art, science, technology and philosophy, the event aims to instigate doubt and stimulate what might be the most powerful characteristic of mankind: imagination. Projects which are still in development are presented to an audience and provided with context, network and reflection. Instead of a static program, the symposium offers a performative and fluid program which manifests throughout different spaces of the building.

The performative symposium places the project ‘Ademruimte’ as the centrepiece of the symposium. ‘Ademruimte’ was developed by the Calmspaces initiative together with professionals in healthcare, architecture, urban design, sound design and the design of ‘healing environments’ during a residency at The Grey Space. With ‘Ademruimte’ (breathing space), Calmspaces envisions a public space in urban environments for peace, contemplation and silence. In 2019 a prototype of ‘Ademruimte’ was created, a spatial installation in which sensor technology, light and sound are integrated in order to guide visitors to focus on their own breathing patterns.

This event explores how we can create an environment that can adapt and interact with the inner state to influence or even enrich our human behaviour or experience. There will be contributions by Anne Nigten (The Patching Zone), Beer van Geer (Calmspaces), Inès Leverrier Péborde (Healing Places), Barbara VisserMartijn Engelbregt and The Wong Janice.

Study for Solid Geographies | Make Move Think x RNDR

Study for Solid Geographies is an interactive installation and choreography revealing the invisible traces that we unconsciously leave behind. It is part of Solid Geographies, a larger, ongoing joint research project by Make Move Think (Lukas Timulak) and RNDR about the mapping and perception of our hidden spatial biographies.

TLLLLLLLT - For the love of Dan Flavin | Philip Vermeulen

During A Grey Space Weekend a new work of artist Philips Vermeulen will be shown. He makes large-scale installations as part of ongoing research in altering physiological states through the manipulation of primary phenomena of light, sound and movement. Playfulness, violence, seduction, self-destruction and delirium are all at play, placing audience at high alert as Philip’s work dissolves the border of mind and material.

WYSIWYG

During A Grey Space Weekend cinema platform WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) will offer a playful programme that puts central their continuous search for different ways of “looking” at film. Against the backdrop of a slightly more conventional viewing space — The Grey Space in The Middle — the programme will offer multiple screenings of (experimental) short films during the weekend, along unusual and shapeshifting viewing spaces. Works by: Johann Lurf, Leïth Benkhedda, Scott Barley and Valerie van Zuijlen.
