Is it possible for our direct sensual experience of a space to derive understanding from a different representation of space?
The solo exhibition On the Soft Edge of Space of Marleen Sleeuwits derives its title from her artists’ book, recently published by Onomatopee. Like the book, the exhibition is a stage on which space is placed at the centre by exploring it in a particular visual manner.
By means of architectural, site-specific interventions, Marleen Sleeuwits manipulates space’s artificial nature to put our sensual experience of space to the test. Although the site-specific works in the Onomatopee show merge into the space’s architecture, they remain individual, unrelated sculptural objects, as slight deformations of reality. This renders space itself contradictory – that is, like a tangible fata morgana. Her work tries to find a new horizon in these poetics.
Special Dutch Design Week opening hours:
Saturday 22nd, Friday 28th and Saturday 29th 1 - 8 Pm
Sunday 23rd to Thursday 27th and Sunday 30th 1 - 6 PM
During DDW we will show various projects.
’Dictionary Dressings’, a research project by Femke de Vries explores how clothing can be alternativeley assembled and how functions can be re-imagined.
’Standards’ by Thomas Raat, considers typologies and archetypes within chairs, as a formal and painterly representation of the social dimension in design.
The mindblowing yet minimalist project ’The Power of Imagination’, by Freek Lomme and Pinar & Viola, fosters the imagination by supplying a 5-minute workshop (soon available on vinyl).
Finally, we are pushing ourselves to the limit in an attempt to realise a project on the opportunities of self-destruction in design.

Official Opening October 22, 4 PM
Continuing until December 20, open Thursdays to Sundays
Official book launch and talk with Joke Robaard
Friday October 28th, 7PM
To decode clothes and explore an alternative fashion vocabulary Femke de Vries’ research project Dictionary Dressings takes the dictionary definition as a “zero condition” of a piece of clothing. These definitions, entirely delineated in physical terms, lead to alternative assemblies and re-imagined functions.

“Design Will Eat Itself” explores products and communications that are designed specifically to remove and efface themselves after use, as a response to the product and information overload and inadequate disposal. These products are pre-programmed to dematerialize, deactivate, disassemble, decompose—in other words, to self-destruct.
- just do it
Expect a comfortable workshop interiour.
