We invited the always inspiring and exciting duo Iris Donker (1986) and Katinka van Gorkum (1988) to be the next
You might remember the enigmatic duo from their confetti antics and dramatically painted faces spitting out plastic letters in front of the camera – their way of inviting us to take a look in their colourful universe, featured in The Funny Issue back in November 2013. We also showed both the video Zelfredzaamheid and the performance registration In de Gloria during the Le Mini Who exhibition back then.
The two will research the function of decors and displays during their stay at The Art Department, mainly through the use of film and performance.
The residents already shot some footage for their new project while in Sweden where Van Gorkum was visiting Donker, who at the time was on a half year-trip through Europe living out of her old Mercedes bus.
As mostly the case when two chaotic minds meet, their project might be a big success or perhaps it will be a big disaster. One thing is for sure though – they will make it work either way.
During the residency the project space functions as a workspace, playground, cinema and gallery and will be in a continuous state of development and excitement.
