Opening Friday September 4, 20.00h
Although not really involved in printmaking as such, each one of the eight young artist who were asked to express their views on this medium of expression, is in their individual disciplines (installations, video, websites, 3-D) striving for crossover forms of representation.
Crossfade consisted of a work period followed by an exhibition. The work period took place in Grafisch Atelier Daglicht and in MU between September 4 and September 15, 2000. Participating artists were Baschz & EThomasse, Klaas van Gorkum, Rosanne van Klaveren, Rogier van Neerven, André Pielage, Jeroen van de Ven and Sandro Setola.
A striking fact was that a number of artists chose to present their work outside MU, in public areas. Klaas van Gorkum's poster format prints depicted the events of his temporary stay in Africa. Basch & Ethomasse, too, mounted their prints on walls all over the city. By means of a video beamer and a rotating ventilator, Jeroen van de Ven presented a colour analysis version of a black film featuring the same ventilator. In his animation Ego, Sandro Setalo applied etched whirlwinds and little worms. André Pielage constructed a floating floor in MU, consisting of small, blind stamped boards wrapped in silver foil. Rosanne van Klaveren presented on the Internet an adventure story in pictures, accompanied by three colourful silkscreen illustrations of polar exploration ships. Rogier van Neerven made a periodical entitled Niets Dan Slechts and a 'hartkamertje' (heart room)
