13.09 SANNE VAN GENT

August 18th, 2014

The Accidental Perfection of Nature by Sanne van Gent

In search of the blurred line between results of natural processes and human activities, Sanne van Gent shows an often absurd hybrid world; half culture, half nature. The base of her work consists of sceneries in which architectonical elements such as stairs, edges, walls and pillars collide with more natural elements such as stones, clouds and vegetation. Her work emphasises the interaction between these different elements, both in terms of functionality and appearance. As a result they reinforce each other, even to such an extent that they exchange meaning.

Opening Saturday 13.09.14 from 17h00 till 24h00 hour featuring Bubbelebim.

During the evening there will be a performance of Bubbelebim, the Rotterdam based (anti‑) literary and absurdistic theatre performance video, consisting of Sim Sala Bubbelebim and Professius T. Taal.

Back In The Day

August 14th, 2013

Jorrit found this nice picture of the Hoogstraat before 1940, with the old Singer building on it from which we got our name and where we are currently residing. Not totally though since, as you know, the centre of Rotterdam was bombed in WWII. The building we are currently in was also Singer and, hitorically interesting, the first one to be erected in the whole area after the war, as you can see on the picture below, which Gyz de la Riviere sent us.
