Ever since the beginning of Plan B the studio space as a location for presentations has been a basic element. Although Plan B functions nomadic nowadays, the studio is still an important element from where different connections are being made. Within ❮❮ REW Plan B looks at the studio as a possible presentation location on one hand, while on the other hand it can be a motive for autonomous works.
The installation ‘Korda’ by KGS Björk will play a central role in ❮❮ REW. The work was commissioned by Plan B and KRETS for the project FOR THE RECORD last fall. Translated as a line segment joining two points on any curve, ‘Korda’ (chord) formulates a relation between the architecture of the artist’s studio in the housing complex ‘Het Breed‘ in Amsterdam and KRETS gallery in Malmö.
After being presented in Malmö ‘Korda’ moved back to its starting point: the studio. Accompanied by works of invited artists the return of Korda marks the beginning of ❮❮ REW. Against this background ❮❮ REW develops as a studio presentation bringing together works by Daniëlle van Ark, Sara Bjarland, Wouter Venema and Jessica Breitholtz Björk in a new order. Within ❮❮ REW transitions in time and location play a different role, as seen from various viewpoints.
