Printed by Studio Michiel van der Kley, Project EGG is the largest collaborative 3D-printed art project to this day. It measures 5 x 4 x 3 meter and is composed of 4670 uniquely shaped stones. The poetic pavilion has an organic form and structure in which the floor, walls and ceiling seamlessly merge. It is comprised of 4760 open, elegantly designed stones with its own unique shape. The inspiration comes from crocodile skin, corn cobs and coral, while the material is new, PLA, re-usable and biodegradable. Upon entering it, the visitor will be inundated by the play of light and shade, seeing 100 shades of white and experiencing space and emptiness at the same time.
Solid Light Films and Other Works (1971 – 2014) is the first solo exhibition for British artist Anthony McCall in the Netherlands and will hit EYE Amsterdam from September 28th until November 30th. Since the 70s, McCall has developed a remarkable amount of work, comprised of drawings, performances, and – the essential part of this exhibition – large installations that he calls ‘solid light films’. These sculptural light projections are equally minimalist in form, magic in effect, theoretic in essence, and physical in experience. The moving light sculptures constantly change form and cannot be categorized in the usual domains of art, such as ‘sculpture’ or ‘film’.
His work is a consistent refusal to conform to art historical categories and constantly circumvents cinematic conventions and expectations.

In Praise of Shadows is a group exhibition in Art Space Tetem – taking place between September 18th and November 16th – assembled by art collective iii and inspired by the eponymous book written by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki about the beauty of dark and shadow in the Japanese tradition. The book not only describes Tanizaki’s nostalgia for the darkness of traditional Japanese homes, but also the efforts to combine new technologies with old materials and habits. A careful selection of materials, simple forms and personal combinations of new and old technologies invite us to open up our senses, to create space with our bodies and to actively explore the details that are hidden in the depth of our perception.
With work by Wen Chin Fu, Mariska de Groot, Matteo Marangoni, Jonathan Reus, Jeroen Uyttendaele, Dieter Vandoren en Dewi de Vree.
