Evelina Rajca, Speculative Ecologies and Intelligent Energy Harvesting Entities; Stroom, The Hague

In Stroom’s Ondertussen (In the Mean Time) series Evelina Rajca (1984) shows some of her works of her project Speculative Ecologies and Intelligent Energy Harvesting Entities.

I must say i didn’t fully grasp the exhibition’s accompanying text.

As far as i can correlate the text with the works on show she is interested in self regulatory systems in non-living objects, or the systems that keep them “alive”, and how these systems can be improved, and especially how they can improve themselves.

The objects on show are interesting and may give you a taste of what she is working on.

Some of you may have experienced the wonderful noise making work on the wall already in 2016 at the Amsterdam Rijksakademie.

Nishiko, Repairing Earthquake Project; Stroom, The Hague

I visited Nishiko’s presentation of her Repairing Earthquake Project at Stroom to write a review for Villa La Repubblica. Click here to read the review (in Dutch).

As i’ve written extensively about the show in VLR, i leave you here with some more pictures without further comment, with the remark that if you didn’t see the exhibition as yet you should do so soon.

Lawrence Lek, Nøtel; Stroom, The Hague

I visited Lawrence Lek’s (1982) new multimedia installation Nøtel at Stroom to write a review for Villa La Repubblica. Click here to read the review (in Dutch).

As I have written quite extensively about the presentation in VLR, I leave you here with some impressions of the show.

Of course it is best to see and experience the real thing at Stroom, but make sure you plan enough time for your visit as this is not a show to hurry through.
