Jan van Eyck project agency Mirror will exhibit and reflect on the outcomes of research venture Living Like an Artist.
Just like the project itself, the week-long exhibition titled Living Like an Artist will display scale models of artists’ ideal households, thus presenting strategies for continuous and innovative talent development, fruitful aging, creative dwelling and everlasting vitality. By analyzing the patterns amongst elderly artists’ lifestyles and the way these correspond to their habitats and vice versa, Living Like an Artist emphasizes that one cannot retire from what one really is. The project’s intention is to point out that, through flexibility and perseverance, mature artists, designers, architects, and writers can be more than mentors to the succeeding generations.
As part of the exhibition, the emerging artist Tineke Kambier will present photographs, depicting the living-working settings of aging artists.
