artists & participants
Stroom Den Haag presents 'Speak, Memory', an international group show on remembering, memory and time. What one person might remember vividly can be completely gone and lost to another. Our memory works in mysterious ways; our images of the past are colored, distorted and blurred by time and emotions. Distorted memories, architectural traces, lost moments and forgotten traditions: these are the elements that connect the diverse works in this exhibition. Point of departure for the exhibition is the work of artists Leontine Lieffering, Sara Rajaei and Vittorio Roerade who received the Stroom Premium subsidy last year. Their work is contextualized in an international discourse with works by Omer Fast, Sara van der Heide, Anne Holtrop, Cameron Jamie, Andrew Lord and Rachel Whiteread. The nine artists explore the erosion of memory and the passage of time through installations, photo and video works, paintings and drawings.
The Stroom Premium is a highly profiled grant given to individual artists on the basis of their current work and their importance in the art world of The Hague.
Additional program: Every Sunday at 3 pm there will be a guided tour of the exhibition. The program also includes studio visits, lectures and film screenings.
Publications: During 'Speak, Memory' new bilingual Stroom Premium publications on the work of Leontine Lieffering, Sara Rajaei and Vittorio Roerade will be released, as well as a delayed edition on Gamal Ez.
