On display at the upcoming summer edition of Art Rotterdam: outdoor work by Marcha van den Hurk. Project: Wave 2021
Art Rotterdam 2021 is taking full advantage of the summer season, with leading galleries and project spaces presenting a record number of impressive outdoor works of art on the factory grounds. Trendbeheer will be welcoming visitors with a site-specific work of wall art by Marcha van den Hurk: waving flags will be hanging from the windows of the Van Nelle Factory adorned with texts from inmates from the penitentiary De Schie on the other side of the water. The texts include quotes, slogans, wishes and messages to loved ones. When the wind dies down, the texts on the canvas can be easily read. When the wind blows, the flags wave back as it were at the penitentiary across the waterway. The wind creates an awe-inspiring and dramatic sight. Other outside works on display: Frank Taal Galerie will be exhibiting work by Bram Braam, while Nest will be showing the art of Müge Yilmaz and Brook Andrew and Kersgallery will display work by David Bade. Roy Mandos will be contributing the work of Maarten Baas and Murals Inc. will be presenting a modern mural by Anan Striker. As part of Prospects, the Mondriaan Fund will be displaying the work of Lin Gerrits, Lliada Charalambous, Olle Stjerne, Rowan van Aas and Lucas Sloot on the outside grounds of the factory.
