Artist Talk & Tour: Philip Vermeulen bij W139
Installation artist Philip Vermeulen is known for the ways in which he manipulates physical phenomena such as light, sound and movement. This gives rise to what he himself calls 'hypersculptures': kinetic sculptures that move so quickly that their physical properties seem to transform before your eyes. During our visit to W139, the artist will give an artist talk at his solo exhibition.
In his latest physical experience in W139, Philip Vermeulen bends white light into thousands of pieces of colour. In doing that, he tries to make you part of a new dynamic between man and machine. His work has previously been shown in the Stedelijk, Into the Great Wide Open and Berghain. In 2020 he was nominated for the Volkskrant Visual Art Prize and his installation More Moiré² was nominated for a Golden Calf in the Best Interactive 2020 category.

At SBK Amsterdam and Loods 6, the seventh edition of the group exhibition SBK Sprouts Young Talents will take place, with new work by the 'best graduates' of the Dutch art academies in 2021. In one exhibition and under one roof you will see the best talents from hundreds of 'graduates' of the 11 leading Dutch art academies together. This year, the emphasis in the work of this batch of artists is on their own authenticity. They are not afraid to explore traditional views, culture, sexuality, political power and abuse and confront the public with stereotypes and prejudices. During the evening, between 18 and 21h, there will be talks by, among others, Tian Teng, Angel Rose Oedit Doebé and Michael Deekman.
