  1. SWAP(s) noun#1: RIZLA+

    Rachel Daniëls, Goya van der Heijden & Zoë Vlijm

    08.05–22.05 2022

    .

    RIZLA+ is an exhibition resulting from a shared creation process, non-definition and open-endedness. Artists Rachel Daniëls, Goya van der Heyden and Zoë Vlijm come together in a shared interest in different aspects of underground culture, a ‘rough around the edges’ aesthetic and the use of sound in their work. 

    The open-endedness of the word RIZLA+, its original meaning as a tobacco rolling paper brand having left our collective memory, finds its counterpart in the open-endedness of the exhibition. The artists choose to not be too concrete and to leave things open to coincidence and interpretation, both during the process and in the final product. This approach during the collaboration has led to an exhibition in which the artists form a sum larger than their individual parts. By relying on the process and letting things happen, RIZLA+ took shape over the course of the week that they were working at B32. 

    Spatial interventions to the semi-sunken room of B32, that the artists endearingly call ‘the aquarium’, change the atmosphere and the experience of the room. By placing red foil on the window, the last relation to the outside world is literally being filtered out, leaving nothing to be experienced but the exhibition before us. Acoustic works sound through the room and connect the visual works. Pre-used materials from B32 are being made into installations that break up the rectangular echo chamber and change the experience in and of the room.

  2. Portrait of the Host

    Pieter van der Schaaf

    De afgelopen twee jaar werkte Pieter van der Schaaf aan een serie sculpturen in keramiek, waarbij vooral de anti-bacteriële kwaliteiten van dit materiaal hem interesseerde. De tentoonstellingsruimte van B32 is binnen deze presentatie de host voor een serie sculpturen, die als organen met elkaar zijn verbonden via het verwarmingssysteem – dat voeding geeft als een soort navelstreng.

    Pieter van der Schaaf (1984, Joure NL) woont en werkt in Parijs. In 2016/2017 was hij als deelnemer verbonden aan de Jan Van Eyck Academie in Maastricht.
