Coop. Dairy De Venen subjected to thought-experiment.
KiK (Art in Kolderveen) located in a former dairy, will give room to The sound of Coop. Dairy ‘De Venen’ and the group show thought-experiment.
The purpose of a thought-experiment is to investigate an imaginary situation and its possible consequences. A thought-experiment in philosophy is very old: a known example is Plato’s cave, through which he tried to explain that the world consists of more than just what we can perceive with our senses. These experiments are often underestimated in today’s society because of its unreal nature. However, they play an important role because they can shed a different light on our thinking about existing situations.
As artist in residence, part of the Mondriaan Fund residency program, Edwin Stolk will stay two months at KiK. With the title: The sound of Coop. Dairy De Venen, he investigates if we are able to bring back the sound of the past in the industrial heritage of today.
Stolk constituted a group show after the theme thought-experiment and presents artworks that one way or another offer space to ‘otherness’ and influence that, what we think we know for sure.
