Positions #6: Bodywork
28 November 2020 - 26 September 2021
We initiate, develop and support projects in the visual arts, performing arts and sciences. Artists and scientists often see things before other people do. They identify social trends, extend boundaries and make revolutionary discoveries. By providing artists and scientists with the space and time to really immerse themselves in their work, and by helping to showcase that work, we seek to stimulate the development of the arts and sciences.
We want to be able to interpret developments in the arts and sciences. That is why we provide experts and innovators with a platform on which to present their visions.
In the past three years, Zito Lema has investigated two conflict situations of which the Oude Kerk forms the centre: the Beeldenstorm (roughly: ‘image storm’) of 1566 and the recent resistance to a red stained glass window. The traces left behind by both conflicts form the starting point for Zito Lema’s new work, which consists of photography, sculptures, textile works, poetry and an installation with basins.
