From Dust till Dawn (Chapter three)

With works by Frank Halmans, Wouter Huis and Daisy Madden-Wells.

NOV.25. – FEB.25.2023 
Opening on Friday 25th November, 19:00 – 23:00

The Balcony, Den Haag

Nieuwe Molstraat 14-A2
2512BK, The Hague

With the third chapter of The Balcony’s inaugural program The Promise of Ruin(s), the attention shifts on the domestic space that, far from being a safe place, is not exempt from the grip of capitalism. From vacuum cleaners to vinyl players, kitsch and decorations are a mirror of ourselves and our identity, free subjects in the free market. To quote Richard Hamilton: “Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?”

Dust is often seen as dirt, an unwanted sign of passing time, a contamination of boredom and decay upon the world of the living. In the words of cultural historian Celeste Olalquiaga:

“Dust is the most tangible aspect of the new historical time, a thin patina of shattered moments remaining after the frenzy of multiplication has subsided or moved away.”

Walter Benjamin, in his writing Dream Kitsch (1927) associates vanished dreams with the colourless state of dust covering forgotten objects. Dust is the added value of time upon matter, where “faded dreams and touch intersect”.

EXPOSITIE 23/01/22
L’Étalage, Malpertuisplein 44, Maastricht
23 januari – 20 februari

In L’Étalage presenteert Wouter Huis het werk I AM AWAITING YOUR RESPONSE.

In de loop der jaren verzamelde en archiveerde Huis de titels van spam-mails die, met lichte aanpassingen, samenkomen in dit videowerk. Deze teksten hebben een paradoxale sfeer om zich heen. Ze confronteren je met problemen en onzekerheden en bieden je tegelijkertijd hulp en remedies voor de problemen. “Voel je je zwak en hulpeloos in kunst? Kunst zal uw probleem oplossen!” Door het woord “Kunst” in de regels te veranderen en toe te voegen, creëert Huis een nieuwe betekenis, samen met een nieuwe interpretatie van de titels. Hiermee zinspeelt hij op de dubbelzinnige rol van kunst in een maatschappij die gedijt op consumentisme. Huis stelt met dit werk vragen en reflecteert tegelijkertijd. De enige zekerheid is nu dat dit werk online zal blijven groeien en zich zal centreren rond en binnen een bepaald moment in tijd en ruimte in L’Étalage.


You can find my (photo)work in a series of photo-advertisements in Metropolis M, H-art, de Witteraaf and now also in the Tubelight magazine! The series consists of an auto-selection of photographs taken within the last (two)years in and around the city of Heerlen (nl).

During the Cultura Nova festival, 14 empty shop premises in the centre of Heerlen will provide the backdrop for Night Shift – a project featuring 14 presentations at the intersection of theatre and visual arts by artist collective RaTSMoDee.

The Night Shift project follows the rhythm of day and night, creating different perspectives on the works: the use of light and darkness connects the 14 presentations. Every location is different; sometimes you will find remnants of an interior, at others a discontinued renovation or an empty white space. All these factors influence the work that is created and how it is experienced.

Night Shift is at the intersection of theatre and visual art. Theatre does not portray real facts, but fictional ones. The aim of such constructions and reconstructions is often to present different nuances. RaTSMoDee adopts a similar and poetic approach: Night Shift can be seen as the antithesis of everyday reality in the city centre of Heerlen.

”, ”, ”, — Footnotes


Exhibition and performances March 10, 2018 – March 25, 2018

”, ”, ”, — Footnotes is the third in a series of experimentally designed exhibition formats. The show traces the act of copying as an omnipresent yet often invisible artistic practice at the intersection of the digital realm and analog world. As part of the arts-based research project originalcopy—Post-Digital Strategies of Appropriation, the exhibition serves as a test setting and working model for a re-evaluation of the dichotomy of original and copy from a post-digital perspective. Despite its culminating character as the third in a row of three events ”, ”, ”, — Footnotes is only conceived as a temporary manifestation, one in a series of possible manifestation forms. With three openings on three consecutive evenings, resulting in three modulated and reformulated exhibitions, the aim of this public reflection upon methodology is to define a realm of thought where current practices of copying are collected and presented and where their modalities can be analyzed by subjecting the copy itself to the act of copying.

Participants: Sebastian Gärtner, Ane Mette Hol, Wouter Huis, Joséphine Kaeppelin, Michael Kargl, Nika Kupyrova, Willem Oorebeek, Lisa Rastl,
