One Window #1

June 1st 2015

Earlier this year art and design platform New Window initiated ‘One Window #1’, a project for which three different artists were invited to develop new works, all starting with the same tool: one screen printing frame, measuring 140×100cm. The participants: Rogier Arents, Kok Pistolet and Aliki van der Kruijs

“In a time where the majority rather chooses for the easy and cheap digital way of working, silk screen workshops are struggling to stay afloat. The One Window #1 project is meant to show the richness and diversity of the silk screen technique by giving three completely different artists a free hand in exploring this beautiful trade. By giving them one restriction – the use of only one silk screen – the participants are challenged to develop a new outlook on this traditional technique, resulting in new possibilities for its application.” – Woes van Haaften
