In early February 2020 at Art Rotterdam, the film and video art section underwent a makeover and has been transformed into citizenM Projections. citizenM, the hotel chain with art in its DNA, has been a partner of Art Rotterdam for years and thought it was time to redefine the collaboration.
For this occasion, together with Tom Postma Design we were commissioned to re-envision the entrance for the new space of citizenM Projections.
The intervention was focused on creating a transitional space that is atmospheric and representative for the works shown inside. Accompanying the reflective material and the interactive led-strips, we worked on a drone composition. The soundscape was created as a mesh-up of different fragments from the videos projected inside.
Sound fragments sampled from the following video works part of citizenM Projections:
Staging Silence (3) - Hans Op de Beeck / Qu'un sang impur - Pauline Curnier Jardin / Similitude - Steffani Jemison / In the Hands of Puppets - Sarah & Charles / TouchMETell - Melanie Bonajo / Walking and Talking - Hamza Halloubi / PANSPERMIA - Pinar & Viola / In Vitro - Larissa Sansour / Grid Corrections - Gerco de Ruijter / Anniversary of a Revolution (Parsed) - Broomberg en Chanarin
Samples from 3 poems by Herbert Huncke recorded in 1994, Belgium: On Language, The lights are shining on me, Listen to me.
