The Splash: the interactive ‘outdoor pool' of Rotterdam Zuid is open!

BY Arttenders | 30-Apr-2021
The Splash

WHAT?! An outdoor pool? In Hart van Zuid, at the Annie M.G. Schmidt square in Rotterdam, a functional artwork has been launched in the shape of... a swimming pool - just before the start of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not a real one of course, but an artistic interpretation that serves as an interactive meeting place for the inhabitants of Rotterdam and visitors. The Splash, a collaboration between Arttenders and artist Cindy Bakker, is inspired by the natural appeal of paddling pools. It is a place where functionality, art, spatial development, and policy solutions come together through social design. The work is 'officially' put into use from April 28 on, but can already be admired!

BY Zilla and Brook | 28-Apr-2021

To Feed your Oracle, a solo-exhibition by German-born, Melbourne-based artist and film-maker Ruth Höflich will be held at Linden New Art from 22 May – 22 August. The installation of photography, video and site intervention will explore how we try to understand or predict things that we can’t see, and how our expectations can affect our experiences of the unknown. In 2019, Höflich was awarded the Georges Mora Fellowship. This new body of work has been created through the fellowship, which allowed her access to the State Library of Victoria’s special collections. Specifically, Höflich drew inspiration from the library’s Alma Conjuring Collection. This exhibition explores the different concepts of magic, from inattentional blindness, divination and magic as a portal to the unknown.
