Artist’s Portrait : Iris Schuttevaar

Iris is a little super energic girl. She lives in a sunny apartment with two friends, where she re-created her little world. Her room is full of magic and charm. Iris works with words, old pictures and documents and she dresses up in bright colors. We talked in front of a coffee and discussed about her dreamy world, about bingo and her portuguese grandparents.

KSAT#7 LAUNCH EVENT at Post–Office, Rotterdam

 

KSAT is ready for the first LAUNCH EVENT of this 7th edition, the REBELLION cycle!

We’re landed in ROTTERDAM city, where a group of international artists gathered to work on the common theme of REBELLION. The first chapter is going to be host by beloved Post–Office, in Rotterdam.

All the artists are invited to create within the idea of « Rebellion in the youth » and they will present their works in a collective artpiece in the shape of a book and a personal installation.

KSAT#7 vol.1 14/11/13 (The Netherlands) is:
- a collective exhibition
- a presentation of KSAT project
- live performance and activities (such as live silk screening)
- a cosy place to heat up during wintertime with good sounds and good food
- a gathering for people interested in experimenting through arts, design, performance, music and video.
- the good occasion to get to know KSAT and apply for participating to the next activities of the project (abroad!)

THAT’S ALL HAPPENING ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 14TH AT POST OFFICE, ROTTERDAM

KSAT IS: artbooks, handcraft made with love, paper experimentation, a transversal artistic experience, nice people, nice vibes and lots of fun.

Artist’s Portrait : Kazuma Eekman

In a quite cold dutch night I visited KAZUMA EEKMAN apartment (and studio) in west Rotterdam. He lives with his friend Lizar and their house is full of little artpieces, tools, puppets, coloured posters and memories of past trips. We talked about fake dollars, zwarte piet and dutch maccaroni. Kazuma joined KSAT project in 2010, for its 3rd edition about « Mind Trips » and he never left us after that. He’s half dutch and half japanese. You’ll see him in december again, participating to KSAT 7th issue exhibition, in Post Office, Rotterdam.

Artist’s Portrait : Julie Thissen

This is a report of my morning encounter with JULIE THISSEN. She’s a freshly graduated product designer, with a special interest for testing different materials, pure forms, hand binding and patterns. Julie has a double french and dutch passport and spent her latest years travelling in several countries where she developed interesting design projects. Now she returned back to her basics, in Rotterdam. That’s where she lives and work. A nice coloured studio in the heart of Delfshaven.

To know more about the beautiful works of Julie, you should check her new website.

BACKSTAGE: Kazuma and the noodle soup

Our friend Kazuma Eekman is currently in Japan for a school exchange at Zokei University. He’s originary from Rotterdam and previously participated at KSAT#3 « Mind Trips » and KSAT#5 « Visions of the future » with his really cool illustrations. He decided to keep collaborating with KSAT from Asia too. He sent us a little glimpse of his latest work, that you can check here below. His arworks and the ones of Horikoshi Kota are now on their way to Europe to be exposed on the next KSAT#6 launch exhibition at the Maison du Portugal in Paris. We love his work and we suggest you to come on June 29th to see its piece and to discover lots of other interesting artists!

Sayônara!
