At Ellen de Bruijne Projects is currently on view the 3rd and final installment of Rune Peitersen’s project, Saccadic Sightings. Last year’s presentation was focused on the relation between art and science, and the position of these two disciplines in relation to our ideas on the perception of reality. This year, Rune Peitersen, goes back to his initial question it all started from: What do we see, when we look at something.
In Saccadic Sightings this question is investigated already in a very strict way. But Peitersen is also interested in going beyond, to the question of: how do we create an opinion, how do we create meaning? To further investigate different ways of approaching these questions, Peitersen invited a number of artists on 21st of July to reflect on what it is or means to “see”. It will be an evening of fascinating, touching, rational, inspiring presentations, musings and performances in which questions will be raised – and possibly answered – about how artists look at and see the world, and how they use this process in their work.

Invited artists: Gwenneth Boelens, Katrin Korfmann, Roland Schimmel, Martijn Schuppers, Rein Jelle Terpstra en Ruth Verraes.at Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam through August 20, 2011 —
