FOR YOUNG AND OLD: Krista Smulders & Michiel Ubels
cute exhibition for kids + spicy film for adults
What makes a good relationship? Is it familiarity, or tension? Is it security or the freedom to be completely yourself? In their latest film INTIEM EN ANONIEM (Intimate and Anonymous), Krista Smulders and Michiel Ubels follow a couple in love for weeks with their camera. Intimate scenes and odes to love are interspersed with silent meals and ritualistic quarrels. The relationship unfolds as an accumulation of illogical choices, uncomfortable confrontations, rosy expectations and grateful memories.
In the second part of the exhibition, the artists show that our expectations of ‘true love’ are not so different from the magical gaze with which children view the world: animals can talk, trees dance and even tables, cars and clouds are characters with whom you can start a conversation. Krista Smulders and Michiel Ubels give free rein to fantasy in ‘FOR YOUNG AND OLD’, and show that magical thinking continues to haunt us throughout our lives.
The exhibition can be visited from Thursday to Sunday between 1 pm and 4 pm.
The film INTIEM AND ANONIEM runs from 13:30 to 15:00. You can make reservations for the film via the website
