Taffy Boudewijns and Monica Sharon

From November to the end of January, Monica Sharon and Taffy Boudewijns will stay at the guest studios to work on The Lowlands Light Project. 
Taffy Boudewijns, a dutch visual artist, began creating sculptures after a year long trip throughout Europe by motorbike. With his technical and creative background, he uses his skills to design sculptures that emit light, constructed from materials that otherwise would be thrown away. Taffy enjoys finding a new purpose for old materials, which makes each sculpture he creates unique in their own way, with their own backstory. In 2015, Taffy began to collaborate with choreographer and filmmaker, Monica Sharon, combining his sculptures with her movement in order to realize a joint concept.

Monica Sharon is a New York native who received her BFA from New World School of the Arts. Throughout her dance career, she has performed works by Martha Graham, Jose Limon, Lines Ballet, Merce Cunningham and Carolyn Dorfman. During her time in Miami, she created work for museums, galleries, film and art festivals. She founded DalioArts with Angela Fegers, a performing arts collective, in 2013. In 2015, Monica moved to Budapest and began collaborating with visual artist, Taffy Boudewijns, combining movement with his sculptures. Since then, she has presented choreography and films in France, Iceland and The Netherlands.
The Lowlands Light Project aims to culminate into an interactive installation that combines choreography, light sculptures, short films and a color of choice. Each color chosen on the four button switchboard corresponds to a certain choreography, film and multiple light sculptures, strategically placed, to illuminate the performer. The way the performance unfolds is decided by the participator, who will choose an order of colors without awareness of the outcome beforehand.

Marco Donnarumma for iii

Marco Donnarumma (b. 1984) is a performance artist and scholar. A unique presence in contemporary performance, he distinguishes himself by his use of emerging technology to deliver body performances that are at once intimate and powerful, oneiric and uncompromising, sensual and confrontational. Working with biotechnology, biophysical sensing, and more recently artificial intelligence and neurorobotics, Donnarumma expresses the chimerical nature of the body with a new and unsettling intensity. He is renown for his skill in using sound, whose physicality and depth he exploits to create experiences of instability, awe, shock and entrainment.

During the residency Marco Donnarumma will lead two sessions of the Reading Room at Stroom Den Haag on October 6th and 14th and will perform within the No Patent Pending series at Baruch Pavilion on October 15th 2016.

Maciej Ożóg for iii

Maciej Ożóg is a sound artist, culture and media theorist based in Lodz, Poland. Since the early nineties he’s been involved in experimental music scene of Poland. In his solo performances he critically explores the liminal territory between body physical activity and invisible electric infrastructure of hybrid space. He uses custom designed instruments and devices as well as digital and analogue electronics.

During the residency Maciej Ożóg will lead two sessions of the Reading Room at Stroom Den Haag on October 6th and 14th and will perform within the No Patent Pending series at Baruch Pavilion on October 15th 2016.

Jeremy Bakker and Angela Pye

Jeremy Bakker is a visual artist from Melbourne, Australia who works across a variety of mediums including drawing, sculpture, photography and object-based artwork. He is interested in fugitive ways that complex ideas can be held within simple things. Jeremy applies manual processes and discreet gestures to commonplace objects and materials as a way of opening up a range of thoughts about time, presence and absence, impermanence, mortality and meaning.

Angela and Jeremy worked collaboratively on a residency project  Echigo-Tsumari Winter festival in Japan in 2012. In her own art practice, Angela explores the notion of intimacy and the relationship between the space of the human body and built environment. 

Jeremy and Angela will use the space and time provided by the residency at DCR to develop ideas for new work and establish new contacts.
