Sara Pape: Is a rock made or born?
an exhibition with Cecilia Bengtsson / Sharelly Emanuelson / Hannah Dawn Henderson / Annabel Kanaar / Quenton Miller / Sara Pape
A series of six one-day events in collaboration with the Master Artistic Research

Diamonds are the hardest and most expensive raw materials from the earth. Wikipedia is currently one of the main sources of knowledge. Computer chips are made partly of sand particles consisting of quartz. Six years ago the artist undertook the challenge of recreating geodes out of base materials as quartz as main ingredient and hot air. She will re-stage this work at 1646, using this moment to address the question of decay and its shift of aesthetic quality overtaken by the laws of nature.

Guest Lecturer is Joram Kraaijeveld, assistant curator at Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam and art theory teacher at Gerrit Rietveld Academie.

The Ongoing Conversation offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions, conceived as a dialogue rather than a series of isolated events. During three weeks the exhibition spaces will become a stage for orchestrated ambiguity, paradox, spectatorship and theatricality. From Melville to Wikipedia, from post-colonial questions to universal issues as love and death; all of this will be explored and performed in six mini solo-exhibition events.
Featuring a range of international artists, each exhibition is complemented with an invited guest who will lecture, perform or participate.

This project is the outcome of a collaboration between 1646 and the Master Artistic Research, The Hague.
The Master Artistic Research is a postgraduate study for artists, based at the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire, The Hague.
