On Sunday the 24th of April at 4 PM, GUEST ROOM* temporary project space at Aelbrechtskade 128, Rotterdam, will open its doors to the public for the fifth time.
In the frame of the Guestroom project artist Esmé Valk (NL 1977) will give a presentation that oscillates between the notions of the artist talk, the performance and the concept of the ‘how to‘. In a shared moment around the dinner table Valk will reflect on the relation between domestic and artistic life. She will discuss the long-term project Zicht op Zalmhaven and simultaneously touch upon the 'lived-in' nature of the domestic environment, being comfortable and the relation between things. As part of the presentation Valk has invited the British artist Jay Tan (UK 1982), to share her views on ‘pottering about’ and on doing various things in an almost aimless manner.
A simple meal will be prepared and served as part of the presentation This place would be perfect if only it had an ocean view.
We are kindly requesting that you arrive at Guestroom between 4 and 4:30 PM. The presentation will start at 4.30 PM sharp. Due to the nature of this work we are obligated to keep to the schedule and can’t allow access to people arriving later.
