Constructed Silence

Henk Schut’s installation Constructed Silence is part of the group exhibition Moving Walls 2010-2020 at Nieuw Dakota also starring: Martha Atienza, Vincent Boschma, Irina Birger, Sevilay Maria

At the end of a turbulent year, Nieuw Dakota celebrates its tenth anniversary. Looking back and looking ahead with a special anniversary programme and in collaboration with artists and their partner BeamSystems/BeamLab. A selection of videos, installations and performances offer a poetic and stilled view of a tilting world.

Silent sounds sound near and far. Young men off the coast of a Filipino island keep themselves afloat. The water rises visibly, just as fast as it does here invisibly. Circles disturb the regularity. The other person’s face speaks in countless flavours. Are we familiar with the miniscule swerve that controls the mighty cogwheel of natural laws?
