ART THROUGH THE WINDOW
During Museumnacht Maastricht, visitors can enjoy Art through the window: No Man’s Land at De Meldkamer.
Curated by Linda Köke, No man’s Land presents the works of Floor Martens, Pleun Moons, Karin Peulen and Sanne Vaassen, artists from the same geographical region who come together to question the appropriation of places.
Can we claim incomprehensible things, like the surface of the skin, the waves of the sea or the soil of the land? Are these even ours to claim, or do they belong to no one? And what does it mean that people want to claim spaces for their own?
Set in an historical time where the appropriation of land is eerily topical, this exhibition combines the poetical and the critical, the concrete and the elusive. By layering images, focusing on transformation and storytelling, we raise questions about ownership, nationalism and restrictions.
The exhibition takes the practical aspects of the Meldkamer as its guidelines, reflecting on the restrictions of ‘claiming this space’ and making it our own too.
No Man’s Land is the first of the “ Art through the window” exhibition series initiated by The Artist and the Others. The aim is to provide space for the emerging talents working in the city of Maastricht while promoting the creation of Fair Art Practises within the artistic field. During the night, you can also expect special guided tours by the artists and the curator. The Municipality of Maastricht is supporting the project financially.
De Meldkamer is a small-but-oh-so-nice and intimate Art Space located next to the always buzzing Brandweerkantine. Be it as an Open Studio or as a gallery, you can regularly discover special works of local talent. And, also on Friday 8 April 2022! During Museumnacht Maastricht, you can admire the exhibition “No Man’s Land”, which puts a spotlight on artists from Maastricht as well as Fair Practice.
Check out the special program of Museum night Maastricht.
No Man’s Land will open on the 8th of April and run until the 30th of April.
The exhibition is visible from the window 24/7. Opens on weekends and by appointment.
