De grote vakantie
A while ago I decided to never ever again accept requests to exhibit in temporary vacant/anti-kraak art spaces. This is because, in my opinion, these spaces indirectly fuel gentrification. I can explain this later. But since I find
reclame a sympathetic art initiative, Lisa a nice person, and even more after discovering some interesting information about the owner of this building, for the last time I said yes.
Eva Pel (NL 1973) is an artist living and working in Amsterdam. With a background in artistic research and geography her work shifts between political engagement and subtle mediation. She employs her interest in how social behaviour is affected and changed by our everyday life, a life that is influenced by our shared space, digital and physical. Her work manifests itself in a range of media, such as video, photography, objects and publications. Since 2013 Pel has been teaching art theory at the pre-course of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Her work has been exhibited amongst others at Frankendaal Foundation (Amsterdam), Witzenhausen Gallery NY, the University of Amsterdam, van Eyck Academie and Salzamt Linz. Her work will be shown at This art fair 26-29 August 2021 at the Kromhouthallen in Amsterdam Noord.
