Discovered in one space, embraced in the other, Antoine Peters gives the floor a leading role in his newest project. With the parquet floor as reference the designer created the Wooden floor dress. Playing with the notion of 'normal' en how the world of art brings new perspectives, Antoine lifts the floor up and elevates it to a dress.

Peters created the Wooden floor dress especially for the cover of You Are Cordially Invited, a two dimensional exhibition space for contemporary art, which is manifested in a glossy magazine. The goal is to discover the context and meaning of modern art and its surroundings.

Antoine Peters: "I am proud of my Wooden floor dress. In this project I could let my creativity run free. With a certain visual approach the magazine focusses on touching a wide audience with contemporary art. My Wooden floor dress is a part of that ambition."

Until the 18th of August you are able to visit ViaHenri where the Wooden floor dress is exhibited.
From Wednesday to Friday from 13.00 - 17.00.

Henri Polaklaan 13.

Holland-Turkey Street Solidarity is an open collective composed of artists, academicians, students, NGO representatives, workers and activists. The collective has been formed in the Netherlands during the Uprising in Turkey in order to initiate solidarity actions with the resistance, and share the updates with the public in the Netherlands.

The resistance on the streets produces its creative language; immediate, critical and humorous. This presentation will share the street visuals of the Uprising, and discuss the various motivations of the resistance. The presentation will be followed by  a Q&A session.
