Ronald Smits

Performance STUDIO DRIFT x Van Abbemuseum

Sun 20 oct at Van Abbemuseum | Downtown

Gordijn and Nauta are building a real-time, transforming sculpture, bringing attention onto our actual use of Earth’s supplies. Through this evolving sculpture constituted of blocks, each extruded form one AH shopping bag, the artists emphasizes to bring awareness about the quantity of materials within everyday objects that are extracted from the earth.
The theme of DDW “if not now, then when” echoes the urgent need to take action to save our planet. The installation at Van Abbemuseum portrays the amount of bags that leave AH stores on a daily basis in Eindhoven.
