Kunstvlaai 2017 (Playtime)

radio interview Ticho Brouwers with JaJaJaNeeNeeNee live @ Kunstvlaai
For its eleventh edition taking place at the Royal Foyer of the Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam, Kunstvlaai invites over twenty experimental project spaces from both the Netherlands and abroad to create a very temporary presentation. There is only a skeletal structure in this monumental space that functions as a framework. Furthermore, the space is empty, so that each project space can appropriate it in its own way.
Apice for Artists commissions Ticho Brouwers for a spatial intervention in the Royal Foyer. Ticho Brouwers’ practice consists of works in which sculpture, film and architectural elements come together and create the impression of a coherent narrative. For the artist, the specific, baroque image of this Amsterdam theater is the starting point to highlight the setting itself and to intervene between support structures such as cabinets, pedestals, podiums and the public as the carrier of the work.
