Diederik Klomberg

27 January 2018 - 8 April 2018

For the exhibition ATTRACTION / REJECTION, Diederik Klomberg stages an installation that can be read as a choreography in which attraction and rejection are the central themes. The visitor completes the choreography of this illusory installation by moving through the exhibition space.

But, the visitor is not the only being in this space…
Who are they?
Where do they come from?
Where are they headed?
And, (how) could you contact them?

Guest curator: Roland Groenenboom

Diederik Klomberg (Oisterwijk, 1963) lives and works in Rotterdam. He studied at the Koninklijke Academie in Den Bosch (1984-1988) and at theJan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht (1988-1990). He exhibited, among other places, in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and TENT in Rotterdam, at Lokaal 01 in Breda and at CBK in Dordrecht, and realised monumental sculptures at several locations in public space.

distillation ‘ANGELS’ SHARE’

Date: 11th March 2018
In collaboration with: Roland Groenenboom, Maya d’Hollosy, Noor Roelofs and Mike Roelofs

In the first part, Kim Everdine Zeegers shows Diederik’s video portrait. Subsequently, Diederik and Roland speak with the audience about three documentaries. We marvel at Vermeer and at Tim Jenison’s explorations in trying to replicate a Vermeer. As little as we know about Vermeer, we know even less about the mysterious musician Jandek. As wondrous, yet operating in the full public eye, is falsifier Mark Landis.

After these conversations, forensic anthropologist drs. Maja d’Hollosy takes over. She teaches us about facial reconstructions and the separation between imagination and science when creating a reconstruction. After a short walk to the Ketelkantine, Noor and Mike Roelofs combine poetry and music in a hypnotising performance.

Finally, the inner human being is spoilt with a delicious meal by Enno Lobo and Manon de Bie.
