In Quartair the Hague troika Ex-MÊKH (Maarten Schepers, Ellen Rodenberg and Kees Koomen) celebrate a 13 years collaboration which brought them amongst others to Berlin and Athens, apart from different Dutch venues.
In this case they invited three other artists to celebrate with them: Frans van Lent, Niels Post and Marian Wijnvoord.
It has resulted in an open and communicative exhibition which tries to avoid the idea of permanence.
Indeed no artistic statement seems to be permanent in this constellation, not even Schepers’ sculptures or Wijnvoord’s paintings, while Van Lent may enter Quartair any moment to fix things.
Koomen permanently works on his diary, while Post shows his next On Spam piece (nr. 68; you may have seen nr. 67 last month at The Balcony, here in town).
Rodenberg’s mobile work is in constant flux.
You may know Kees Koomen as my tirelessly blogging colleague, as you also may know Niels Post from the Dutch artistic blogosphere.
