The world can currently be experienced as extremely fluid. Nothing is certain, everything is in motion. As a result of scientific discoveries, ideas that had long been carved in stone have begun to flow. Think of concepts like time, space and reality. This overflowing, unstable world also intrigues the artists in the group exhibition ‘Fluid Desires’.
Artists: Hicham Berrada, Mimosa Echard, Inge van Genuchten, Marie Maillard, Shanta Rao, Jérôme Robbe, Maya Rochat, Leonid Tsvetkov

Performance by artist Hicham Berrada
Truly alchemical theatre, Présage results in a performance in which the artist associates different chemical products in a beaker. He presents a world set in motion via various manipulations. These transformations of matter, which are filmed and simultaneously projected onscreen, plunge the spectator into a fairytale-like world with fascinating colors and forms. From the laboratory to the studio, from the chemical experiment to performance, Hicham Berrada strives to create a natural world that is chemically activated.
Nest is a contemporary art platform with a large exhibition¬ space. Nest is housed in the DCR, a creative incubator, together with over 35 artists and designers and three cultural organisations.Exhibitions at Nest focus on specific themes which are being investigated through the work of local, national and international artists.
