Club Solo participates for the second time in Intersections, where artists’ initiatives, non-profits and independent art spaces present themselves in context of the Art Rotterdam.
For Intersections, we invited artist and VJ Gerald van der Kaap (Enschede, 1959) to make a presentation. This presentation will act as a preview to the solo exhibition of Gerald van der Kaap’s work, which will take place at Club Solo in Breda in April.
Van Abbemuseum will respond to Gerald van der Kaap’s work with a contribution from their own collection.
Van der Kaap will be showing an autonomous trailer, Beyond Index – Trailer 03, referring to his new, experimental film Beyond Index. The trailer can be viewed during private screenings. The film was shot in Southern China with a Chinese cast and crew.
Fang, an art student, works in a painting factory, where masterpieces from the historic Western avant-gardes are copied for an unknown commissioner. After meeting the mysterious Yves, Fang begins to dream another reality, against the background of a changing China. Is creation possible? Is the revolution possible?
Beyond Index was made in collaboration with cinematographer Yu Likwai (known for his collaborations with Jia Zhangke).
The soundtrack was made by Âme, the DJ/production duo Kristian Beyer and Frank Wiedemann, who co-created one of the most influential and ground-breaking labels in dance music.
Made possible by Mondriaan Foundation, Nederlands Filmfonds and Interakt.
The choice of Van Abbemuseum:
In response to Gerald van der Kaap’s work, the Van Abbemuseum has chosen to exhibit A Man, A Village, A Museum – Qiuzhuang Project (2010 – 2015) by the Chinese artist Li Mu. During one year, Mu worked in his hometown Qiuzhuang, where Mu and the villagers together copied and exhibited the conceptual art collection of the Van Abbemuseum. During Intersections, part of this extensive project will be shown.
