223M

Start date: 7 February 2019

End date: 9 February 2019

Location: De Brakke Grond - Amsterdam NLD

223m is the result after a week of research with all the five SoAP artists together. It became a performative walk in-and-outside a black box theatre. A contemplative but active tour created by Johannes Bellinkx, Rita Hoofwijk, Nick Steur, Breg Horemans en Benjamin Vandewalle. “After a few years of reflecting on each others works we now wanted to realize a piece together. Can we find synergy in combining our artistic qualities and materialize them in a new piece of art?” 233m was created and shown for the first time during Beyond the black box festival 2019, Brakke Grond, Amsterdam.

FREEZE – 50 sculptures 100 stones

Date: 30 June 2019

Time: 11.00 -unknown

Location: parc de Bruxelles - Brussels BEL

For a whole day on a long stretch of grass in the Royal Park, Dutch performer and visual artist Nick Steur creates fifty sculptures. Each sculpture is composed of two stones, chosen by the passers-by out of a hundred. Nick Steur then enters the greatest concentration to make them hold one on top of the other in balance on a metal stud. Steur: I would like to invite you to stay a bit longer. I will also ask you to make no pictures at all. This might feel counterintuitive, but it creates an opportunity to fully experience this moment together.
