20 March - 3 April
Wentelteefjes is an artists’ collective, founded in 2016 by 4 artists from Arnhem. Together with participants they organise festive, interdisciplinary exhibitions in which the main focus lies with experimentation and connection. The name ‘Wentelteefjes’ came to be because of their nomadic existence. The organisation remains flexible and without obligation by adjusting themselves to each location.
This seventh edition, Wentelteefjes comes to Kunstpodium T with an exclusive regarding the work of three upcoming artists: Sander van Noort, WONNE and Zwaantje Kurpershoek.
Wentelteefjes selected these young aritists because all of them display a drive to find their limits and dissect the overlap between reality and association. Watch the playful narratives they create in awe. The childlike world, full of monsters and other beings, causes certain surprise in the eye of the beholder. Whether it’s understated or challenging: all of them communicate their experiences through their sculptures.
On Saturday 20 March the exhibition was opened with a performance by saxophonist Nuno Silva. You can watch the video of the performance and the exhibition below!
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
WONNE, born in 1996 in Amsterdam, lives in and works from Arnhem. At Kunstpodium T he will show a variation of his installation “Heimat is where the art is”, which is full of different materials, techniques and collaborations. The basis of his work is formed on canvas paintings, changed into 3D-sculptures that remind of tents. Visitors will come across several sculptures that are made out of ceramic, epoxy and fabrics. They resemble childlike, animalistic monsters that look more confusing than scary, as well as ceramic pots and living plants.

Sander van Noort
The work of Sander van Noort finds its origin in wonder about mankind and is manifested in a playful manner.
The art that he displays is mainly based on communication, and everything is created and connected in an associative way. His process usually starts in the strong need to create anything, regardless of how random it seems at the time. Meaning gradually finds its place in the art, and the viewer is challenged to find the stories themselves.
Zwaantje Kurpershoek’s art is born of stories; thoughts that come out of experience which are translated into sculptures, installations, video’s and paintings. Within this constant flow of stories leaps are being made between reality, imagination and fantasy.
Her imagery gives access to a peculiar world in which everyday shapes change into beings with their own personalities and mutual connections. This leads to the intuitive challenge for the viewer to find meaning in the art. The viewer might not be able to put their finger on it, but it will absolutely be clear that in a vast ocean, these works belong to the same crew.
