ADA Rotterdam - Area for Debate and Art


Sunday 07 June 2009. Part of P for Performance.

P for Performance was pleased to announce as its fourth performative event: What to do with art by Esther de Vlam.

A tree hugging encounter on Sunday afternoon. The ‘picnic like’ event took place between 15 and 16.30 in Het Park. You can view a short excerpt from the performance bellow.

Information about the artist:
Esther de Vlam is an artist based in Rotterdam. She is interested in how we begin to make something from the bare minimum. How do we depart from zero? She investigates how the threshold of normality is crossed and a new position is maintained; how a crisis (a war, or poverty, for instance) becomes normality, even taken for granted. Her works take the form of interventions and installations where everyday objects undergo a transformation.

Among other places, you could have seen her work at:
