Joost Rekveld «Light Matters» på Cinemateket
We are pleased and privileged to be able to invite internationally acclaimed Dutch artist Joost Rekveld to present this month’s The Dream That Kicks in person. Rekveld will be showing work from his own oeuvre as well as historic films that have informed his practice.
Joost Rekveld works in dialogue with machines and machine systems, often inspired by forgotten corners in the history of science and technology. These systems combine the form of procedures or code, with more open-ended elements such as material processes or networks of interactions that are too complex to predict.
His films, installations and performances are composed documentaries of the worlds opened by such systems. In their sensuality they are an attempt to reach an intimate and embodied understanding of our technological world.
His films have been shown world-wide; screened at venues including the ICA and Tate Modern in London, The Centre Pompidou in Paris, Moderna Museet in Stockholm and at the Sundance Film Festival. He has curated and published internationally.
The presentation is a collaboration between The Dream that Kicks and Atelier Nord.
