Room on the Roof presents Rutger de Vries / Spectrum

Sat 20 Oct - Sat 27 Oct in de Bijenkorf by de Bijenkorf
This event is open for the public.

Room on the Roof / de Bijenkorf

Room on the Roof, the artist in residence van de Bijenkorf presents Spectrum by artist and graphic designer Rutger de Vries. Rutger creates installations and paint explosions. Rutger seeks out the boundary between autonomous and applied art through Spectrum. During the Dutch Design Week all colours from the spectrum unite in one exhibition on the third floor of de Bijenkorf Eindhoven.

Room On The Roof is an artist workspace in the tower above the Amsterdam de Bijenkorf store. This aerial eerie in the heart of the city is a place for reflection, a platform for fresh ideas. De Bijenkorf invites local and international artists, writers, musicians, architects and designers to create new work inspired by the location and the city Amsterdam. The artists will be invited to spend time in Room on the Roof and present their projects in store in various forms, music in the fitting rooms, a poem on the book department, exhibitions in the atrium, the stairways and in the windows.

Rutger de Vries makes self-built paint installations, paint explosions with a graphic and graffiti background. Spectrum can now be seen in all of the Bijenkorf stores. During the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven from 20 to 28 October all artworks from SPECTRUM come together in an exhibition on the third floor of the Bijenkorf Eindhoven.

Rutger de Vries

Bombing in graffiti-terms is the act of writing a tag (preferably very visible) in public spaces with a spray can. These signatures are simultaneously a gesture of strong authorship and anonymity, situated in-between destruction and adornment. Rutger de Vries, with roots in the graffiti scene, in search for a new platform for painting and alternative exhibition formats, bombs the exhibition space with explosions of paint.
