We are proud to inform you that Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen are nominated for the prestigious Prix de Rome Visual Arts 2019.
The Prix de Rome exhibition is on view at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. The exhibition presents new work by all the nominated artists: Sander Breure & Witte van Hulzen, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Femke Herregraven and Rory Pilgrim. Two weeks after the opening, on Thursday 31 October, Ingrid van Engelshoven, Minister of Education, Culture and Science, will announce the winner.
The collaboration between Sander Breure (1985) and Witte van Hulzen (1984) started ten years ago by making dance performances. Since then they continued their practice together, presenting performances, videos, installations and sculptures. Their dramaturgical analysis of daily life and their observations of human behavior form the basis of their work. The jury appreciates the ways in which they develop and formulate their observations to build richly imaginative stories. For the Prix de Rome 2019 they made an installation in which sculpture and performance are first brought together for a longer period of time, based on two worlds that seemingly diverge.
Part of the installation Accidents Waiting to Happen is a performance.
This performance is on view until Nov 1 and on Friday Nov 22, 2019, on occasion of the Amsterdam Art Weekend.
