Marco Douma presents ’Sneeuwstorm’, a video work from 2015 with 30 minutes sound/music from Machinefabriek.
Arjen van Krieken opens his studio to show the first results of an investigation into new materials and a different working method. Krieken searches for a balance between being part of a contemporary urban society and being part of an autonomous world. By placing everyday actions and current events in artistic practice, he comes to ideas that are presented in the combination of existing objects like scrap, and building materials like plaster.
