MARRES is a house for contemporary culture in Maastricht. Marres initiates and shows a variety of contemporary artistic practices with a strong emphasis on the senses. It works with visual artists, perfume makers, composers, herbalists, memory experts and cooks. In Marres, artists sing the landscape, draw taste, let us feel music, and touch our minds. In addition to exhibition spaces, Marres oﬀers its visitors also a restaurant (Marres Kitchen) and a beautiful garden.
THE MATERIALITY OF THE INVISIBLE approaches contemporary art as an activity that shares several characteristics of archaeology. Many artists probe the underlying layers of our social and political reality. They expose what is concealed and penetrate to other times. Like archaeologists, they make the invisible visible.
The exhibition is organized by the Van Eyck in collaboration with Marres and Bureau Europa and spreads out over the three locations. More info here.
Marres Currents #5 is the fifth edition of Marres Currents, an annual exhibition in which young curators are invited to curate an exhibition of recently graduated artists from art academies in the Southern Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. In doing so, Marres provides a platform for young artists and curators, and contributes to an international infrastructure for talent development. The exhibition is curated by Isabel Van Bos and Evelyn Simons. More info here.
Through our senses we form mental representations of our own body and the space and events around it. These mental representations have an impact on our emotional, social, and motor functioning. Ana Tajadura-Jiménez’s research focuses on showing that these mental representations are not fixed. Her project The Hearing Body investigates how sensory feedback changes people´s experiences of their body and the surrounding space. More info here.
How do we experience our body when we are at the theater, listen to a concert or attend a lecture? David Helbich’s long-term project Audience Observations plays with this interaction. By echoing this happenings, he demonstrates its performative qualities and thus ponders on the relationship between public spaces and audience participation. More info here.
