SALON/dantel, november 1st – december 14th 2014, Istanbul
SALON/dantel is part of the 2nd IKSV Design Biennial curated by Zoe Ryan by invitation of IKSV tasarim director Deniz Ova. It is a travelling concept based on the SALON/KANT in summer 2013 in Amsterdam and shows a selection of artists, designers and fashion designers from the Netherlands and previously shown in SALON/KANT combined with Turkish participants selected by Özlem Yalım Özkaraoğlu. SALON/dantel will exclusively be shown in and around Adahan Hotel in Sishane, Beyoglu in Istanbul. SALON/dantel is curated by Manon Schaap and Gijs Stork in collaboration with Özlem Yalım Özkaraoğlu. SALON/dantel is generously supported by DutchCulture, The City of Amsterdam, Adahan Hotel, Consulate General of the Netherlands in Istanbul, IKS. I will participate with handmade collages and videos. Some of them have been previously exhibited at Museum IJsselstein, some are new. Also: Judith Koning and I made a special stopmotion video for this event, we called it “Jeanne (en haar hersenspinsels)” which means Jeanne and her brain spinnings (± weird thoughts). It will be screened at the exhibition PAPIER 紙 (October 11 – November 9, 2014) at gallery Le Poulailler, Wannehain, France, too.
