Starting in 2007 artists Conny Kuilboer and Ben Kruisdijk collaborated to make work under the moniker Kruisdijk / Kuilboer.
They're fascinated by the relentless inner urge of people to create. Their current exhibition, The World Needs A Narrative, held at 21rozendaal is a tribute to this desire to create.
In addition to existing and new work ranging from drawings to large installations, Kruisdijk / Kuilboer asked other artists and friends to contribute.
The show features contributions by actor Sanne den Hartogh, graphic designer Louis Reith, artist Noor Nuyten & Christine Bax, Paulien Föllings, Richard Bussink and designers of Studio Kern.
In addition, Kruisdijk / Kuilboer are planning two eventdays called the sunday-afternoon-narratives and the sunday-afternoon-tunes.
The sunday-afternoon-narratives will be held on sunday 13 October 2013 and will be an afternoon of two lectures. Guest speakers are artists Odilon Pain and Sjoerd Westbroek.
Odilon Pain grew up on the French island of La Reunion located in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. His lecture will be about 'Growing up on an exotic island'.
What is true about the image that we have in the western world about the exotic? And what impact does it have on a persons childhood to grow-up in a melting pot of world cultures?.
Odilon Pain (Bordeaux, 1985) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium and is HISK laureate 2012. He received his Master2 in theory and research (cum laude) from the Universitee Paris, Panthéon-Sorbonne. He studied at the art academy in Bourges and Lyon.
Sjoerd Westbroek's lecture will be a plea against creativity. At a time when creativity is turned to a policy, it seems almost impossible to understand any meaningful interpretation we can give it.
Should we reclaim the concept to provide it with a new meaning? Or is it better to give it up a as lost cause? Westbroek will advocate the latter and thereby explore some ways in which we can move ahead, without having to rely on an outdated notion of the autonomy of art.
Sjoerd Westbroek (Rhenen, 1979) lives and works in Rotterdam and currently participates in a research residency at the Van Eyck Institute in Maastricht. He received his MFA in 2008 at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. He studied at the art academy in Arnhem and Enschede.
