SOLO EXHIBITION 'EHBO', Galerie Ron Mandos, Amsterdam (NL)


Atelier Van Lieshout has transformed Galerie Ron Mandos into a surrealist parallel universe. Makeability – as an ideal – reaches its apex here, overachievement resulting in perverse hyperbole. It’s a confrontation with life itself: the failure, the triumph and the inevitable collateral damage.

EHBO feels like a cross between a field hospital, labyrinth and sculpture garden in which religious iconography gets mixed up with all too human and post-human images. This installation is not for the impassive viewer, here the audience must wander amongst every level of human experience

'Het Labyrinth', Dutch Design Week, Eindhoven (NL)


16 October 2021 – 24 October 2021

At Dutch Design Week 2021, architect and former chief government architect Floris Alkemade will present an exhibition in the form of a labyrinth on behalf of the Board of Government Advisors and together with World Design Embassies.

The labyrinth represents ‘the art of changing direction’. It is about exploring new ways of observing, thinking, and acting. The labyrinth consists of three parts. The first part is about social changes and the search for solidarity. The second part is about our desire for control in uncertain times – for better or for worse. And the third part is about our ability to dream and imagine brighter futures, and a call for joint action based on solidarity.

Floris Alkemade is one of the three DDW Ambassadors of 2021. The labyrinth is part of World Design Embassies and can be visited from 16-14 October at Dutch Design Week (DDW) in Eindhoven. The exhibition is located at the heart of the design festival, in Klokgebouw at Strijp-S.
