Double Exhibition BLURRY CONFLICTS I & II
February 20 – May 21
NP3 presents within the environment YARDin the next reinvention of Allan Kaprow’s YARD by artist Marc Bijl in the Double Exhibition BLURRY CONFLICTS I & II at the locations bur0 Gr0ningen and M0Bi.
The solo exhibition of Marc Bijl contains industrially made paintings and a video installation about the end of the industrial era. Information and conflicts become increasingly unclear when more information channels are available. Plain language becomes hollow slogans and deliberate analysis get attacked as elitist and intellectually, shouted down by the voice of the people.
“The battle for the survival of man as a responsible being in the ‘communications era’ is not to be won where the communication originates, but where it arrives … “
– Umberto Eco “Towards a Semiological Guerrilla Warfare”, 1967
Ex-squatter and rebel Marc Bijl shows his softest side in this exhibition. The most beautiful colors from ominous newsreports. Hard facts in dreaming away noise …
