10-11-12 AUGUSTUS


During an intense three-day-program (August 10-11-12) a group of 20 artists was given the opportunity to join the Artist Village in Eindhoven (NL). The Artist Village provides an ideal environment where artists can immerse in an open investigation of their work.


Participants attended six daily one-on-one conversations with curators, established artists, gallerists, architects, psychoanalysts, art critics, and others. The conversations are held on the basis of your portfolio and focus primarily on content and the contextualisation of it. 


Selected artists:

Eleye Boerenkamps (The Netherlands), Nel Bonte (Belgium), Danny Bracken (USA), Katrein Breukers (The Netherlands), Noé Cuéllar (USA/ Mexico), Stefanie De Vos (Belgium / Austria), Laura Fitzgerald (Ireland), Pete Fung (Canada / China), Juss Heinsalu (Estonia), Anja Jelovsek (Slovenia), Klara Kayser (Germany / UK), Lisa Matthys (Belgium), Rahma Meriem Said (Algeria), Lana Mesic (The Netherlands / Croatia), Meenakshi Nihalani (India), Diego Orendain Garcia (Mexico), Cecilia Rebergen (The Netherlands), Alice Rekab (Ireland), Driton Selmani (Kosovo), Pieter Léon Vermeersch (Belgium).

The organising partners:

WARP Contemporary Art Platform is a non-profit organisation based in Sint-Niklaas (BE) with an international horizon in mind. It has a program of exhibitions and lectures, but always with the challenging question: How to inspire and support artists? For this reason we initiated portfolio days and the extended version of it, the Artist Village. Selected artists of previous editions have become the creative reservoir for further exhibitions.


This Artist Village is co-organised by Beeldenstorm / Daglicht, a knowledge centre in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) where materials, techniques and knowledge are used that fit the current, ever changing wishes of the creators. Their main goal is to support and encourage production, research and experiment.
