SJOERD WESTBROEK – EXERCISING HESITATION

 

HÁDEGISFYRIRLESTUR Í MYNDLISTAR- OG LISTKENNSLUDEILD

 

(English below)

 

Mánudaginn 23. febrúar kl. 12.30 mun Sjoerd Westbroek halda fyrirlestur um verk sín og vinnuaðferðir í fyrirlestrarsal myndlistardeildar að Laugarnesvegi 91.

Sjoerd Westbroek er búsettur í Rotterdam.  Hann lauk námi í listkennslu frá ArtEZ Arnhem og meistaranámi í myndlist frá Piet Zwet stofnuninni í Rotterdam og Háskólanum í Plymouth í Englandi.  Hann er nú að ljúka námi í heimspeki við Erasmus Háskólann í Rotterdam.  Árið 2013 bauðst honum rannsóknarstaða við Jan Van Eyk akademíuna í Maastricht fyrir einstaklingsverkefnið Exercising Hesitation.  Árið 2012 var hann í vinnustofudvöl í Air Berlin sem styrkt var af Mondriaanfonds í Amsterdam í samvinnu við listamannateymið ADA sem hann er stofnandi og meðlimur að.  Hann hefur sýnt verk sín víða í Hollandi og í Evrópu og kennir við Willem de Kooning Academy og Piet Zwart Instititute í Rotterdam.

 

Í fyrirlestrinum mun Sjoerd fjalla um rannsóknarverkefnið Exercising Hesitation ásamt nálgun sinni í listkennslu. Í verkum sínum reynir Sjoerd að skoða stöðu sína sem listamanns í misjöfnum aðstæðum og hvernig þær aðstæður geta tengst innbyrðis og myndað ólíka heima.

 

„In general terms, my aim is to think through how this shifting between roles takes place, what exactly these spaces are which one can occupy as an artist and how these relate to each other. I am interested in finding moments of hesitation, in which interaction with a work or thing is somehow suspended, before the desire to see something meaningful has been fulfilled“

 

Á meðal nýlegra sýninga Sjoerd eru Shift & Drift, TENT Rotterdam í Rotterdam 2015 og MoMart í Art Rotterdam 2014.

SJOERD WESTBROEK – EXERCISING HESITATION

 

OPEN LECTURE AT THE DEPARTMENT OF FINE ART AND THE DEPARTMENT OF ARTS EDUCATION

 

On Monday the 23th of February at 12.30 an open lecture by the artist Sjoerd Westbroek will be held at the Department of Fine Art, Laugarnesvegur 91.

 

Sjoerd Westbroek is an artist living and working in Rotterdam. Initially trained in Art Education, he holds an MA in Fine Art from Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam/University of Plymouth (UK) and is currently finishing a BA in Philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2013/2014 he was granted a position as a researcher in Fine Art at Jan van Eyck Academy Maastricht for the individual research project Exercising Hesitation. In 2012 he was an artist in residence at AiR Berlin Alexanderplatz, supported by Mondriaanfonds, Amsterdam, together with artist initiative ADA, of which he is a founding member. He has exhibited both in The Netherlands and abroad and teaches at the Willem de Kooning Academy and Piet Zwart Instititute in Rotterdam.

 

In his lecture Sjoerd will focus on his research project Exercising Hesitation and his approach to art education.

 

“As an artist I spend my days drawing, writing, studying, teaching and collaborating – a rather loose category of activities, driven not so much by one overarching thematic approach, but more by a constant process of repositioning myself in relation to a set of potentially meaningful objects of study. In general terms, my aim is to think through how this shifting between roles takes place, what exactly these spaces are which one can occupy as an artist and how these relate to each other. I am interested in finding moments of hesitation, in which interaction with a work or thing is somehow suspended, before the desire to see something meaningful has been fulfilled. For instance, if one thinks of drawing as a gestural activity, taking place in space, what role could it play in mapping a space of suspension and hesitation? How would this mental space function within the physical space of the academy, or institutional structures in general? Could suspension and hesitation be didactic strategies, challenging a notion of knowledge as something instantly accessible, ready to be put to use? Occupying different spaces of suspension is not a gesture of withdrawal or even a refusal to interact. Rather, I see moments of hesitation as opening up a realm of questions and potential actions which allow for a more thorough exploration of how meaning as something relational comes into being.”
