" Conceived as a gameworld-reading, the disappearance of a tigress from mapping devices is a political embodiment of seeking refuge and resistance from capture." ~ Ultrasonic Tigress, a thrilling performance by Gayatri Kodikal (DAI, 2020) will take place twice, during the opening of The Ground up and The Washed Down on the 8th of July, at 17:00, and on the 29th of July, from 16:00-17:00 at A Tale of A Tub. The script was first developed in Berlin at the Silent Green Kulturquartier in 2019 as part of the Dutch Art Institute’s final Kitchen presentations of that year.
DAI salutes Jort van der Laan (DAI, 2011), who, after an intensive jury process has been selected, together with 20 other artists, for a much coveted 2023-2024 Residency at the Rijksacademie (a post-graduate, non-degree, fully funded studio space with an amazing support structure in Amsterdam plus access to international networks ). The institution boosts 1200 applications from 109 different countries for this round.
In the exhibition "Being moved things around. Deferral at Hillside" artist Stephan Blumenschein (DAI, 2018) presents a new installation deriving from his research into anxiety, architecture and the extended medical gaze. The origin story of panic disorder as a medical category, which unfolded during early pharmaceutical experiments at Hillside Hospital/NY (1959-62), served him as a point of departure. What captured the artist’s imagination was the hallway of the Morris Lowenstein Pavilion in which the changed movement of a patient became visible; and the role of an anonymous nurse who’s observations were the base of a new conception of panic. Blumenschein’s interest lies here specifically with the production of (in)visibilities. Looking back in time, back at the institution, and to the back – the artist challenges what is deemed unheard and unseen. Blumenschein warmly invites us to the opening on Thursday, July 6, at Beautiful Distress from 5-9pm. On show over the summer, accompanied by a small side program - two screening events (July 23, Sept 03) and another iteration of his ongoing "We are listening to a record" series (Aug 12).
