MAAIKE VISSER - 'I FELT LIKE A REBEL'        

An ornamental installation.

We had to get rid of the ornament, cause the wast of labour and capital is an ornament's biggest crime. We don't want to promote consumers desire and capitalistic behaviour. Craft and hand-work equals luxury, that is a high price to pay. The Ornament produces effects and resonance. And is particularly known by it's fanatic ways to approach form, structure and surfaces in a coquettish manner. The ornament is neither mere decoration nor pure "art".

This exhibition was part of an art-weekend in Amsterdam-West concentrating on the Witte de Withstraat.

Project Space Zoete-Broodjesis a platform for contemporary art that provides solo presentations of artists with an experimental approach to the space.
In the series My Fiends the artist is given the opportunity to work two weeks prior to the exhibition.
