The first iteration of the work is contoured into an interactive Flash environment, a hybrid between documentary forms and the ludic. Topologies traces a multiplicity of layers and movements in Istanbul via mobile and ad-hoc Turkish coffee encounters: a slow mapping of unpredictable and rapidly shifting urban patterns and diverse stories and accounts by those who inhabit, walk, dwell, witness, work and protest in the city.
-RECOLLECTED- opening on June 5th at het GLAZEN HUIS -Amsterdam
ZET Foundation organizes the exhibition Recollected at het Glazen Huis in Amstelpark, June 5th to June 26th. At 15:00 Marens Engelhard, director of the (Amsterdam) Municipal Archive, will open the Recollected exhibition at het Glazen Huis, located in Amstelpark.
For this exhibition the ZET Foundation invited eight artists to create and show a work inspired by the act of collecting, exploring the diverse uses of this term. In their works, the artists make use of archive materials, impressions, stories, and pre-existing objects. Collecting is understood as a verb that refers to a subjective action in which personal contexts, interests, and encounters are part of the process. Artists' interpretations and interventions become the basis of new images/works. The collective presentation, in turn, may become the source of new experiences and memories.
