MIR is a mobile and energy-neutral pavilion suitable for outdoor locations and focuses mainly on installation art and art forms that have a link to technology and sciences. MIR will be in Amersfoort from April 28 to July 1 on a last piece of wasteland along the Eem River in De Nieuwe Stad. For this occasion, four artists, three of whom are from Amersfoort, have been invited to create new work on location.
Work by Jitske Bakker can also be seen in the exhibition CRY from May 26 to August 19 at Kunsthal KAdE. In MIR, Jitske plans to work from the floor with wide rolls of white paper. The working process takes a week, occasionally on view for the public. The fields are served and crammed into peaks and valleys giving relief to the fictional landscape. Visitors can view the landscape of charcoal and white paper from all sides by walking around it - similar to the work on view at Kunsthal KAdE. Her exhibition for MIR runs from June 29 to July 1 and can be visited from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
