In the age of the antropocene, humanity has become a geological force on earth. These relationships between humanity and the planet play themselves out on a smaller and more personal scale. Mirte searches for an intimacy with objects, non-human species, technology, the environment and other human beings. She investigates how our surroundings influence our behaviour and how we can have a dialogue with the world around us. Throughout language, installations, video and photgraphy she tries to capture these dialogues.
Arjan van Helmond (1971, The Netherlands) is interested in painting as a medium that helps us think about and analyze objects, places and representations of spaces of our daily lives. His art practice focusses on appropriating through painting the unspectacular and even banal aspects of daily life -a view of the sea, a garden, the house we live in, the carpet under our feet, souvenirs and trinkets in the closet- and yet his paintings are not explicitly narrative. Instead they use ordinary and evocative details to build up a form of realism, that aims to trace a path between history, culture, cliché and everyday human behavior;
Besides maintaining an artistic career, with international exhibitions in New York (USA) and Los Angeles (USA) London (UK), Sydney (Australia) and Shanghai (China), he teaches Painting at AKI-ArtEZ School for Art and Design in Enschede and is engaged as an advisor for AFK, the Amsterdam Art Foundation and CAWA.
