EX-MÊKH is preparing for the Hybrid Art Fair in Madrid and experimenting with their materials. Here some try-outs by Ellen Rodenberg , processing the ideas she developed at Arteventura during a residency in Spain:
From 7 to 10 March 2024 EX-MÊKH will again participate in the Hybrid Art Fair. The fair is located in the Hotel Petit Palace in which the rooms will be exhibition-spaces. During the fair participants can also stay in these rooms which poses questions about art and privacy, the nature of artworks and the nature of hotelrooms. We will try to show relevant works for all these questions, processing our experience with Spanish culture and with working in Spain. It will be a challenge to continue finding appropriate images for these subjects as we tried to do in the 2022 edition of the Hybrid Artfair with the installation Con Alma.
Maarten Schepers and Ellen Rodenberg will benefit from their residency in Arteventura past fall. Kees Koomen has traveled extensively in Spain and enjoys classical and modern Spanish literature and cinematography immensely.
