Topographic studies in shades of green
Thursday 31 Aug 2017
The project is a series of mixed media work on paper, inspired by the unique geometric forms of the polder landscape. The three-dimensional bodies installed throughout space serve as a base. Drawings, paintings and thread together with colour, form and texture show a unique play between abstract and figurative forms. The whole portrays a re-imagined ecosystem that makes a connection with imaginary flora based on the nature found in the Netherlands region.
You are cordually invited on Thursday 31 August to admire the work of Vero Glezqui. The artist will talk about her work around six o'clock.

Try-out “Ven Salta”, Wednesday 24th May at 20:00
Wednesday 24 May 2017
In Ven Salta seven contemporary female poets from Lebanon, Syria, Spain and Greece gave inspiration to a new series of 11 pieces for female voice and small ensemble. Besides the differences in religion, language and tradition, the Mediterranean area is a very alive and dynamic region with many cultural similarities. These are strongly represented in the works of all these female poets. In Ven Salta we work with these similarities and differences musically by contrasting and blending them into a very colorful canvas of music.
Composition Aspasia Nasopoulou (Greece / Netherlands)read more
