Beyond The Naked Eye

23 – 30 Oct 2016

Catching the hidden beauty of our surroundings.

During the Dutch Design Week 2016 curators Woes van Haaften and Roosje van Donselaar present the ’Beyond The Naked Eye’ exhibition, and the Post Modern initiative, both at Kelderman en Van Noort.

People have always had a limitless urge to map, measure, document, analyze, simulate or even manipulate the world. Little seems undiscovered. Certainly now everyone has the tools needed, in order to capture the world around them and share their collection of images. Therefor artists and designers are coursing towards alternative ways to get a grip on their surroundings, exploring hidden layers, undetectable by the naked eye.

The exhibition, entitled ‘Beyond The Naked Eye’, shows a diversity of ways artists and designers have captured their surroundings. They have developed their own unique working methods to gather new insights and depict the intrinsic beauty of the unseen landscape. In this quest these makers often skillfully rig existing techniques to their own hand, causing a surprising and renewing outcome.

‘Beyond The Naked Eye’ reveals the unseen hidden beauty and qualities of the world that surrounds us.

Participants: Jólan van der Wiel × Benthem Crouwel Architects, Jannemarein Renout, Sacha van den Haak & Felix van Dam, Stefan Peters and Annesas Appel.
