In the framework of the exhibition Who Sci-Fi More Than Us? Kunsthal KAdE in cooperation with the organization Framer Framed organizes an “Artist Talk” on May 26, 2012, from 2:00-4:00pm. Free and open to the public, this conversation will take place at Kunsthal KAdE, located at Smallepad 3, 3811 MG in Amersfoort, Utrecht, The Netherlands.
The artists invited to participate are: Pepon Osorio (born in Puerto Rico, living and working in US), Tirzo Martha (born, living and working in Curaçao), Mario Benjamin (born, living and working in Haiti), Jean-Ulrick Désert (born in Haiti, living and working in in Germany) and Remy Jungerman (born in Suriname, living and working in The Netherlands).
Description: In conversation with the moderator Francio Guadeloupe, five participating artists will present their work in relation with the Caribbean artistic and cultural context. Migration, colonialism and diaspora are historical and political elements of the region and they play an important role in some of the art works shown. During the talk, the artists will tell how their artistic practice deals with these themes.
As a foretaste of their theatrical piece Water under the Bridge on the industrial history of Curaçao, the duo mother and son Glenda Martinus and T. Martinus will reflect on the Artist Talk by presenting a poetry summary and a live drawing.
