Polderlicht 2009

Fri Oct 23, 2009 00:00 - Mon Oct 19, 2009

The Chicago and Amsterdam based collaborative localStyle presents Fluid Mechanics Remix as a large-scale outdoor public installation in the Amsterdam Polderlicht 2009 Festival.

Curated by Loes Diephuis and John Prop, the Polderlicht Festival is a biannual, international event that has taken place in Amsterdam since 2001. This unique festival is open free of charge to the public on three successive nights this year: October 23, 24, 25. It takes place in and around the Stadhuis Oost-Watergrafsmeer, a location in Amsterdam that is still in the midst of being transformed from its former industrial identity as the site of a large gas factory to that of mixed use residential purposes, civic services, and cultural organizations.

Video installations, sound sculptures, performances, interventions, and other works that foreground light and/or sound as their medium are placed in a wide range of atypical spaces, dramatizing the architectural process—itself a work in progress—as it relates to the reclamation of a desolated urban zone and celebrating its reintegration into the surrounding community.

Participating artists in 2009 include: Mark Bain (USA), Gudrun Barenbrock & Carl Ludwig Huebsch (Germany), Beambus, Berale, André van Bergen & Michiel Kluiters, Blendid, Rachel de Boer, Jan-Bas Bollen & Byungjun Kwon (Netherlands/Korea), Jeroen Glas, Kees Hoogeveen, Jaap de Jonge, localStyle: Marlena Novak and Jay Alan Yim (USA), Dorothee Meddens & Ronald van der Meijs, Yehudit Mizrahi (Israel), Bart Prinsen (Belgium), Su Tomesen, Peter Vink, Elaine Vis, Arik Visser, and Bert Vogels.
