An Interior Motion
For her first solo-exhibition in the Netherlands, Peruvian artist Andrea Canepa (Lima, 1980) has taken on the Aula space of de Appel as the site for her continued fascination and investigation into the organization of the physical and social structures of our everyday lives. An investigation that seeks to reveal that while the spatial and architectural parameters of these systems of organization can seem clearly marked, their programme – how they are used – is indistinct. An indistinction based on the notion that within almost all aspects of human interaction the boundaries of these connections are ambiguous. By means of the 1:1 scale of her sculptures alongside the performative feature of An Interior Motion, Canepa makes this ambiguity evident. By juxtaposing the architectural narratives of the monumental interior with human movement, the (possible) social realities of its past and present open up opportunities to reinterpret the space and its many meaning(s).2 Jul up to 21 Aug — De Appel

Özgür Kar – At the end of the day
The Stedelijk presents a major work by Özgür Kar in the large IMC gallery on the first floor, also known as the Gallery of Honor. The work of Özgür Kar (1992) reflects on the contemporary human condition, focusing on the input we receive from mass- and social media, and how these sources influence our sense of self. At the end of the day reflects the title of both the artwork and exhibition, and is the first solo presentation of Kar’s work in an institutional context in the Netherlands.16 Jul up to 23 Oct — Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam
