Outermost Corner

Every year, Nest organises a One Nest Stand (a one-night-show) for which academy students get the assignment to make a work in the sphere of one of the exhibitions of Nest. This year students of the Royal Academy of The Hague draw their inspiration from the exhibition 'Another Dimension' at Nest. The students are invited to think about the most distant corners of our cosmos, and the fictional, invisible and alien that emerge from that.

Opening Reinventing Daily Life

“Daily life consists of going through systems, until you die", a student of the Sandberg Institute recently said. Initially a gloomy analysis, but after longer consideration, it is also possible to give it a more positive reading. Systems direct our lives, give it meaning because they tell us how to live and guide us in times of uncertainty and doubt. The analysis became the research area of Reinventing Daily Life for which Nest invited four artists whose visual practice is strongly based on examining systems (of thought). They question, use, or manipulate the structures that make life uncluttered. Thanks to the lucid redefinition and endless perseverance of the artists, we get the freedom to consider the world again, if only for a moment.

Artists: Charles Stein, Gary Hill and George Quasha
Three Ways At Once (I Don’t Understand Language)

Performance + Panel Discussion
A performance for multiple cameras, microphones, video projection, computers, and other instruments, all manifesting towards ‘glossodelia’. What are glossodelia? To answer this question beyond the literal meaning of the word – ‘revealing tongues’ – Gary Hill, George Quasha, & Charles Stein enter into a state of co-performative inquiry through what they use for language. This includes just about anything that can be generated in real (and hyperreal) time, such as sound, image, word, gesture, and a range of semi-definable electronic phenomena (electronic linguistics). What they make happen through various instruments (psychonautic languaging vehicles) becomes a field of strange attractors (dynamical lingualia) with a pull toward possible language realities (lingualities). They have called it 'a pulsational conversation with stepped-up intensity in which Real Time is invited to show its other side'.

Opening Easy to love…

Opening speech by Maria Schnyder

Karin van Pinxteren (1967, ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands) studied Graphic Design and Architectural Design and gradually entered the field of art to become the full-on artistic practitioner she is today. Presently she explores particular notions of disciplining and trust within the poetic parameters of spatial relations.

In her work van Pinxteren basically seeks out perspectives of the gaze and its focus set within relational structures. Subsequently, and more specific, she explores these perspectives in settings that allow for multiple angles of vision and parallel focus points as she plays this field’s symbolic order. Here, she explores and identifies both the subject’s and the setting’s relational position along the parameters of language, spatial settings and language carried. In sum, her work relates the fullness of our daily theatre as a hybrid-reading biotope: led insistently to enact itself according to cultivated promises of modernity.

Van Pinxteren longs for openness, for a deeper trust in our environment that should begin with a more profound understanding and a shift in perspective, altering the foci from the system’s point of view while simultaneously including open-ended personal whereabouts.

Opening The Future is Female

An exhibition concept in which we are taken by the hand through essays written by the artist Twan Janssen to enable us to look at the work of 13 female artists in another way. Looking at art is also reading the artwork and with this very personal view of Twan Janssen in which he is not afraid to use childhood memories, astonishment, daily casual thoughts, you will get the opportunity to look at the works in a different way.
It’s a personal guide....
The exhibition has a beginning and an end. And all what happens in between is arranged/positioned in such a way that again a story is told. This text is not written by Twan Janssen, but floats between the lines.
The end is marked by a video work of AnneMarie van Splunter; A Day Such As This. The soundtrack is by Bill Withers; the chorus, lovely Day, lovely Day, lovely Day, lovely Day .... And that’s also the beginning again. A beginning for which a flag is planted for women who make art, who are again and again without doubt use their femininity in favour of their artistic career and creating works you can’t ignore. Watching and reading go hand in hand although for all of them the source is different. They are moving forward and onward.
May 27 will be a Lovely Day, The Future is Female.
