Heleen Blanken's Museumnacht

This weekend, visual artist Heleen Blanken has two pieces on show during Museumnacht ("night of the museum") in Amsterdam. The first piece, called Terrene, was unveiled at ADE and is a collaboration with producer Peter Van Hoesen and proved hugely popular. It is on display at the Rembrandt House Museum and Saturday will be the first and last time museum visitors can see the installation at night, which makes the work even more intriguing.

Heleen has always been fas­ci­nat­ed with earth­ly mat­ters and so jumped at the oppor­tu­ni­ty to use the enor­mous white hall that is the base­ment of the Stedelijk Muse­um of Ams­ter­dam, where for one night only she has set up her newest piece, the Ousia instal­la­tion. It is about human inter­ac­tions with the Earth and is part of the muse­um’s pro­gram for the night that also includes Beesmunt Soundsys­tems take on the same mat­ter. Head here for more info.
