The works of Kamiel Rongen, Zeger Reyers, Jasmin Moeller and Masha Ru are in a constant state of flux. Each makes use of (human) nature. In this way, they show what happens in the meantime. That which grows, pisses and flows away.
Opening: September 11th, 19:00 - 22:00
Hereafter, during Mediamatic opening hours: mo - fr 10:00 - 18:00.

Musician and artist Kamiel Rongen’s interactive video installation is triggered by piss. By peeing into the urinals along the facade, dripping and dreamy images are activated. Everything you see is real! No digital manipulation is used. Kamiel uses only liquids such as piss, water and oil to create his images. The accompanying soundscapes have also been designed by Kamiel. All urine from the installation is collected in a tank and saved for future projects.
To learn more about Piss, come to Urine Matters and Materials on September 24th.
Zeger Reyers has a strong fascination with the uncontrollable nature of environmental and biological processes, such as growth, bloom, sprouting and death. In his newest installation Hard Water, he explores the confrontation between nature and object, but also between inside and outside space. The ‘waterfall’ of stacked ceramic dishes and plates flows through Mediamatic’s outer wall, through the greenhouse roof, out over the inside wall of the restaurant. Water seeps gently through the installation, bringing along microscopic organisms and plants which will, after a time, grow over the installation.

For the past 3 months, through the planting of flower seeds, you could discover which kind of artist you would have been; Romantic, Beaux-Art or Modernist. The installation, with its 30 questions about life and art, is now in full bloom. You can still participate. This weekend, in honour of the Dijkspark opening, the answer card is available at a reduced price. Read more about Raising Doubts here.
Alongside this opening, the opening of Festisvall Fünf will also take place. Including 15 graphic design posters by 15 different artists from Iceland, Germany and The Netherlands. Featuring music by Hermigervill. The posters are inspired by the theme ‘eating’. More info here.
