Proximity Music: Visceral Acts to heal the wounds
Proximity Music is a joint exhibition program initiated in 2021 by iii and Rewire, which seeks to connect music, architecture, technology, ritual, and play through physical experiences engaging with all the senses. Last weekend the exhibition was on show durig Rewire Festival at Amare and surroundings in The Hague’s city centre.
Proximity Music: Visceral Acts is an exhibition inviting us to engage playfully with mind and body. Presenting a diverse range of works emerging from the backdrop of a health crisis, it brings into question ideas of health and sanity. Through the lens of personal, creative if not unorthodox approaches, artists help us trace paths backwards and forwards in time, connecting with different forms of knowledge. When old habits become inadequate to deal with an era of instability, what can we learn from the creative practices of artists, which can aid us in the search for a new equilibrium?
Here’s an impression of a part of the program which consisted of works by Aernoudt Jacobs, Alexis Bellavance, Amos Peled, Diane Mahín, Dominik ‘t Jolle & Maria Komarova, Frederique Pisuisse, Jeroen Alexander Meijer, Karel van Laere, Matteo Marangoni & Dieter Vandoren, Naama Tsabar, Naomi Rincón Gallardo, Vica Pacheco, Vivian Caccuri & Thiago Lanis.
