For the third time, Arcam Amsterdam Architecture Centre and XS Architecture, design platform for collectible architecture, are organising the XS ARCAM MARKET after two successful editions in 2014. With this third edition we will pay tribute to the theme Light Architecture. The XS ARCAM MARKETS specialises in other forms of architecture, architecture that is small, light and mobile. The XS ARCAM MARKETS are exhibitions in which most objects are for sale.
Titia Ex, Juicy Lights
Light and architecture are inextricably linked together and interact in many special ways. This diversity is reflected in the submissions for the Open Call to which architects as well as artists and designers have responded. A total of twenty-one participants from the Netherlands and abroad have been selected of over seventy applications.
Based on the many special light objects that have been submitted, an exciting ‘luminous exhibition’ has been created, consisting of four separate parts:
1. Artists Tita Ex and Giny Vos are exhibiting large public artworks hanging from the glass façade at the Oosterdok and visible for passers-by and passing boats.
2. A light house by Atelier Wouterszoon together with Jan van Vlerken is exhibited in front of the glass façade facing the street and visible for all traffic on the Prins Hendrikkade.
3. In the centre of the exhibition space, various light objects and lights are placed on a large hanging platform, creating a ‘floating city of lights’. This platform includes work by Next Architects, Rein Jansma/ZJA and Harry Morgan.
4. Light objects and lights are placed along the black long exhibition wall, inclusing work by Arnout Meijer and Ward Wijnant.
The exhibitors are:
Titia Ex – Giny Vos – Atelier Wouterszoon in collaboration with Jan van Vlerken – Chris van den Broeke – Arnout Meijer – Ward Wijnant – Archiattack – Benwirth Licht – Paul Baartmans – Henk de Haan – Rudy Davi – Joost van Santen – Elisabeth van Dusseldorp – Mike Korth & Walter van Broekhuizen – Harry Morgan – Next Architects – Roger Moerdijk – Sabine Marcelis – Rein Jansma/ZJA – Renate Vos – Bart Verschoor – Architects of Air.
