The Stars Down To Earth, Margaret Haines, 2015 (© the artist, courtesy by The One Minutes Foundation)
In Squeeze Crush Press Blush, curated by Afra Eisma and Marnix van Uum, twenty-one artists and filmmakers invite you to take a dive into their ever-changing minds. A crack in the gloss, a break, a rupture, a split, a breach, a slit, a smack, a smash, a blow, a bang, a grin, our mind is a container. The selected One Minutes were sent in from China, Belgium, Finland, France, Greece, Netherlands, Suriname, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.‘Squeeze Crush Press Blush’ offers a non-linear journey across a multitude of feelings.
Afra Eisma (b. 1993, the Netherlands) creates intimate worlds bursting with colour and energy. Her work consists of tufted carpets, ceramics, drawings, paintings and textiles.
Marnix van Uum (b. 1991, the Netherlands) works with media (i.e. video, photography and text) that have descriptive qualities and thus imply to depict (fragments of) reality.
