DROP IN; MOVE ON!

Zap through living rooms and watch highbrow to pulp: Anything that moves!

Join us Saturday December 21st for a long long night.

From the eight-o-clock news.

And then:

hou je mond nee niets te maren
poets je schoenen kam je haren
héé!

‘Elektriciteit is onze Hobby’ at ten-o-clock!

The band was founded in 2007, out of sincere concern of global warming. Their music has been described as "explosive-aggressive" and "apocalyptic-electric". It is a band that simply wants to play some songs in a time where everything revolves around power and money. They are the aboriginal, the outcast, who through music tries to come into contact with other universes.

In deSERVICEGARAGE ‘Elektriciteit is onze Hobby’ will once again attempt to break free from their Ego with the help of electric sound-vibrations and dance.

Since 2010, the Missing Channel has been organising events which bring together numerous artists from all over the world. It is a multi-shaped label that wants to change the relation between music and image: Why can’t a poster be a song? Why can’t we store an image inside a song?

deSERVICEGARAGE
CRUQUIUSWEG 79, AMSTERDAM
EXHIBITION DATES: 27 June – 7 July / GALLERY HOURS: Thursday through Sunday 12 – 18.00

The Static alludes to the net charge of an object, an interference, a random signal, a constant, but simultaneously a thing at rest.  Yet, the charge, the objects, the associations, the visceral impact, like art itself, is alive … Electric.  As in Mark Romanek's cult film of the same name, there can be a puzzling power in that interference, possibly something that reaches to something even higher.

The graduation group show brings together the work of nine artists from The Netherlands, Greece, United States, Belgium, Canada, South Korea, and Iceland.  Visitors will encounter recent works of sculpture, video, painting, installation, and performance, in conversation with one another, and shifting at the mark of the second week.  Like perhaps a slightly bizarre evening gala, one might overhear topics approaching Post-Fordism, techno-Modernism, the nature of the Museum, Hitchcock, authenticity and Cy Twombly, and leopard-skin pants. If lucky, Bob Ross might even stop by.

A DISTANT BIRD SINGING

Avi Krispin + Sarah Vanagt




deSERVICEGARAGE presents ‘A Distant Bird Singing’ and shows work by Avi Krispin (IL) and Sarah Vanagt (BE). The exhibition includes two video installations, which leave an open-ended question to what is going on. Without words, can they still reveal their story?


In ‘A Killer Reunion’ by Avi Krispin a collection of characters sit in a slightly wrecked living room, caught up in repetitive actions, as if following a terrible event. When a man in police uniform enters the scene, presumably to work out what has happened, it becomes clear that there is something else going on here. 



  



In ‘The Corridor’ by Sarah Vanagt, a donkey is followed for five days during its weekly visits to old people in nursing homes in England. Time and time again the donkey is welcomed with open arms. It is only when the donkey enters the room of Norbert, a man who had lost his ability to speak, that an altogether different encounter takes place.





The silkscreened poster [limited edition of 100] by Michiel Schuurman is for sale at deSERVICEGARAGE during the exhibition for the special price of 10 euros // www.michielschuurman.com


Opening Saturday April 6, 20h00
Exhibition open from April 11 - May 5, Thur - Sun from 12h00 - 18h00

THE RISE AND FALL OF THE CONTINUOUS CYCLE




deSERVICEGARAGE celebrates the rise and fall of the continuous cycle. Join us for an extensive and exciting event with time-based art. With performances, video art, sound work, poetry, music and fire by:


Mercedes Azpilicueta, Bingolingo and Foneysoney, Sara de Campos & Felicia von Zweigbergk, Nina Glockner, Sarah Jones, Sachi Miyachi, Pyromancer (NL) and Fraser Stewart.

The event is a response to the 24-hour policy by the municipality of Amsterdam: 25 buildings and 15 areas in Amsterdam are permitted to extend their opening hours. This development changes the notion of time as the day turns into the night and vice versa.

 



In the weekend from Saturday 23 to Sunday 24 March, various cultural manifestations will take place in city district Amsterdam East to bring attention to its privileged position. deSERVICEGARAGE is open Saturday 23 March from 22h00.
