FRANK HAVERMANS at GM8 Amsterdam
Event: Frank Havermans, Artist in Residence at GM8
Location: GM8, Gabriel Metsustraat 8, Amsterdam
Hosts: GM8, Cityscapes Gallery and Non-Fiction
Artist talk and drinks: Friday 29 March, 6 PM
In the periode February – March 2013 Frank Havermans (1967) works as an Artist in Residence in the Cityscapes Studio at GM8.
In the eyes of Frank Havermans the City is not only the product of architects, urban designers, developers or politicians. The City of Frank Havermans is an independent being that forms and transforms itself on its own. Over the years Frank Havermans investigated in his own particular way the secrets and eomplexities of urban structure in a series of drawings and objects that form an on-going project on the city.
This time his exercise departs from the empty Cityscapes Studio space with in it only three austere objects by Gerrit Rietveld (remnants of the last Cityscapes Exhibtion): a steel table, a glass show-case and a wooden chair. Step by step Frank conquers this space and fills it wth his dreams and drawings about the secret life of the city.
The result of the Residency in GM8 will be presented on Friday 29 March. At 6 PM the artist will talk about his work with Bastiaan Gribling (Cityscapes Gallery) and Michiel van Iersel (Non-Fiction).
