what does rhyme with time

Santa Maria, you’ll be busy with me.
Here to feed your agenda and eat your time. Our exhibition planning incoming:
Isa Grutter's 'Een laatste handje' | 02/09 - 08/09
The world is finished, the deadline has been met, but then doubts set in. The unstoppable artist throws his rest day overboard to put one last creation on earth. Because it’s never finished, and certainly never good enough.
In her book ‘WERKTITEL: MENS’, artist Isa Grutter takes on the immodest task of showing you, the viewer, how God (perhaps) intended it.
The book has been around for a while, but that wasn’t enough either. In the Patty Showroom, Isa will be giving you an insight in her work.
✒️ Opening: 2 September 2021 | 17:00 - 21:00
✒️ Finissage: 8 September 2021| 12:00 - 17:00
✒️ Days in between: 12:00 - 19:00
Thomas van Rijs' 'The Tar Pit Trip' | Opening 17/09
Taking a trip through memory avenue with Thomas van Rijs.
For his upcoming show, Thomas has been focussing on the research into the fragmented and twisted events from our collective memory while also reflecting on his own memories (imagine lil Thomas playing soldier, building huts and exploring the neighboring farmyard 🥺).
In combination with visual material collected over the years, Thomas reconstructs these bygone memories in the shape of floor plans or top views. As an archaeological or anthropological investigation into his past, he rediscovers and recreates memories - as they are subject to transformation over time too. The typographical elements and everyday objects that populate the paintings enter into a new dialogue with each other and thereby acquire a new meaning. Boom! An open narrative arises and the viewer is free to apply their own interpretation.
👇 Come wandering through memories and make your own.

Arash Fakhim + Gijs Assmann's
A duo show! Yes!
Arash Fakhim and Gijs Assmann joined forces to free themselves and our society from restrictive and oppressive conventions. They do this by devotedly shaping a ‘social fabric’ of solidarity.
In search of self-determination, Arash and Gijs alternately add new layers to each other’s work. Behind a sewing machine!🧵
In this exhibition, the two artists attempt to master the age-old language of textiles - inspired by their research and discovery of the the post-war Dutch Liberation Skirt or Party Skirt (Bevrijdingsrok or Feestrok). They will present a collection of textile works that visualize and celebrate personal liberation. These originated in a relay race; the works have all been taken care of by both artists in turn. The various works alternate in the appearance of a piece of clothing, a banner, a painting, a curtain or an object.
In ‘DEVILS AMONG THE TAILORS’, Gijs and Arash use embroidery stitch and zigzag as a means of connecting, bringing together a network, assembling that which is not naturally united, masking wear and tear and strengthening cohesion.
