The One Day Collective X EXPOPLU
Detail of ODC X Expoplu #1
About the one day collective
What if the mind does not know what to expect beforehand? How do we create when there is no time for over thinking and doubting?
The one day collective is a temporary art collective that exists for one day only. Artists from various disciplines are invited to form an art collective for 12 hours. They have never met before and will enter the experiment together. They start from an empty mind and an empty space. There are no rules. Trusting the moment and the endlessness of ideas, working from honest impulses and acting before the mind tries to understand.
This edition at Expoplu will be the first stop of the one day collective tour through Europe. Travelling in a camper bus seeking for the new role of the young artist in Europe. What questions do young European artists have today?
The one day collective is organized by Eline Janssen.
Participants #1 - 10.03.2017:
Isolde Venrooy (1977, NL) is an independent artist. She also works as a lecturer at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in the Netherlands.
As an artist, Isolde Venrooy adopts a non-linear, associative approach as she questions semiotic systems, such as the way in which numbers are used in our daily lives or how awards are given as an expression of appreciation. A common thread in her visual work is the phenomenon of the presence of absence; the presence of something that is not physically present, e.g. a man who, after years of wearing a moustache, shaves it off, the strangely empty spot on his face reminding one of what was once there. The space in which we find ourselves and which surrounds us possesses a similar invisible presence.
In 1998, Isolde Venrooy graduated cum laude from the Academy of Fine Arts in Tilburg, having studied Drawing and Painting. She subsequently attained a Master's degree in European Arts and Cultures in 2000. In 2003, she graduated cum laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven, where she studied Man and Communication.

Anneke Ingwersen (1976, DE) is an artist, writer and educator based in the Netherlands.
Through diverse media (installations, silhouettes, puppetplay, video, photography) she investigates the shadow as a method, material and a metaphor for questions of identity and diversity. To share her research on social-political topics Anneke Ingwersen has a regular social practice, initiating participatory workshops with a public of all ages.
Most recently Ingwersen works on the long term social-artistic project When does the past stop? looking more closely at the material used for teaching National history, especially the timelines. Concluding that that material has severe gaps when it comes to a representation of history for a multi-cultural society she invites various groups of people to annotate the National timeline with alternative stories.
Her work took part at screenings, shows, public events and publications at Sonsbeek‘16 TransACTION (NL), the Van Abbe Museum (NL), Summerschool TAAK at Marfa Texas (US), Museum Bronbeek (NL), Schloss Ringenberg (D), Malkasten Düsseldorf (D) and Blast (D), Museum Arnhem (NL).
In 2010 she got a stipendship of the Mondrian Fonds (NL) and in 2007 by Gap/Schloss Ringenberg (D). Ingwersen holds a BA in Art Therapy by HAN (NL, 2000), a BA in Fine Art by ArtEZ (NL, 2007) and a Master of Fine Art by the Dutch Art Institute (NL, 2015).
Johannes Kronenberg (1991, NL) graduated at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Arnhem in summer 2015, whereafter he started to work for Het Instituut in Amsterdam as artistic researcher, as assistent reseacher for the Art and Cultural Education Research Department of ArtEZ and founded Stichting Met Andere Woorden together with Eef Veldkamp. Paralel to the social oriented art projects, Kronenberg worked in his shared studio in Arnhem, together with three young artists and a curator. From September 2017 Kronenberg will attend the Master Social Sculpture at the Social Sculpture Research Unit in Oxford. The work of Kronenberg is divided in ‘action pieces’ and ‘conversation pieces’. The first one is oriented to use art more as a mean instead of a goal and the second one relates to the reflective
character in the appearance of installations, sculptures, et cetera. Both to explore and question the role of art at the beginning of the 21st century and how to support and react on the rapidly transforming world we live in.
Participants #2 - 17.03.2017:
Drs. Isabelle Bisseling (1987) is art historian and works as a project assistant at the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo. Being interested in all manifestations of art, she also works as an artist, independent curator, designer and (collection) advisor. The premise of her work and research is often 'the strange', because according to Isabelle the strange invites us most to investigate, discover and learn. She also believes that confronting the strange will speak to a new, more open way of thinking, which could ultimately lead to a better understanding of the world and the choices individuals make. For example, she made a study of the human experience of the colour blue, which is often related to 'the void'. In addition to cultural and historical theories, she applied (neuro)biological facts and found they complement each other rather than contradict. An excerpt of this research was recently published in Art History Magazine Desipientia.
Collaborations: Derde Wal Nijmegen, KiK Kolderveen, ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Museum Arnhem, Destination Art and Rijksmuseum Twente.
Hessel Josemans is an artist based in Nijmegen the Netherlands, By putting himself in different personalities (alter ego's) he finds ways to have a brought spectrum of disciplines. As Gustav Mosselman he creates big paintings, drawings and installations full of provoking, absurd references. His handwriting is loose, quick and impulsive. As for instance Ralph Cunt (AKA the Bordedom King). Hessel is a DJ/rapper who sees himself as the typical result of this non-idealistic over romanticizing generation. And there are more, like interior surfer Gilles Dodaars or Harry Tinnegieter. More and more personalities arise while being bored
Danielle Lemaire (1967, Breda) creates drawings, paintings, performances, soundworks, and graphical prints. She releases books, records, cassettes and CDs on her own label Inner Landscapes and she organizes exhibitions and live events. She also gives sound-performances and teaches drawing and painting. Danielle creates work in a concentrated and sensitive manner, in which time investment and duration play an important role.
This time investment gives the work a layered quality and ‘brings it to life’. The drawings and paintings usually contain subjects such as ’empty’ interiors in which human presence is suggested; shadows and echoes of human life. The image can also be populated with people; a (self-)portrait, people to whom a specific memory is connected, or anonymous people in a seance-like setting.
She works individually and at times in collaboration. Mostly together with Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen with whom she has a duoshow in Gallery Arti Capelli in Den Bosch from 19/3 - 29/4 and will do a residency in Kanazawa, Japan, in autumn this year.
Not-knowing forms the starting point for all projects that Eline Janssen (1993, NL) initiates. Graduated as a fashion designer, the field of visual arts is an experimental unknown territory for her. Questioning is the only way to come closer to understanding. How relevant is it to create art? What is her role as a young artist in society and how necessary is that role? She believes the key towards knowing is not in waiting for the answers but in actual doing (action).
Causing situations, in which being present in all honesty, corresponds to this vision for Eline. This can result in accomplishing the Japanese dance Butoh, a work of making ‘the inner landscape' into a concrete picture through the body, or in organizing a dinner for newcomers and locals emphasizing the similarities they share.
Her idea of questioning and doing led to the project the one day collective. A temporary art collective that (re-)exists one day. Local artists, thinkers and makers meet in a spontaneous collaboration. At the moment she is organizing on a tour through Europe with the one day collective. It is going to be a search for the questions of young European artists. By listening to each other and actual creating together she hopes to come closer to the core of what art means today.
