ZLS III feat. Mike Kelly/Franz West
Sunday 7th of October 2018, at 3 pm
By Inge Nabuurs and Erwin van Doorn
In 1999 Villa Empain was the site of a historic show Franz West / Mike Kelley, which included The Morgue, a series of forty collages of Kelley now part of the collection of the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. Artists Inge Nabuurs and Erwin van Doorn took these collages as the starting point for a new work in their series Zwischenlandschaften, retracing the dense history of this influential exhibition as an infinite palimpsest of the modern world. On October 7, for one day, Nabuurs and Van Doorn will bring West’s and Kelley’s conflicting worlds, spanning from Vienna to Detroit, back to memory and life in an immersive video installation and performance.
The artist duo Inge Nabuurs and Erwin van Doorn are based in Eindhoven. In their recent series Zwischenlandschaften Nabuurs and Van Doorn developed a methodology to read the symphony of histories written in the specificity of landscapes or sites. Based on in-depth and on-site research, the work combines video, performance, and installation, with moments of participation. They have realized projects for Documenta 14, Furk’art, New Museum, Filter Detroit, and Van Abbemuseum.
