Vorm-Fellows-Attitude by Gelitin

Vorm-Fellows-Attitude

Dear Diary,

Yesterday we went to Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam to see the exhibition Vorm-Fellows-Attitude by Gelitin (a group of four artists from Vienna, Austria. The group was formerly known as Gelatin and changed their name in 2005.) which was opened last weekend. We, at Mimi Berlin, had a really good time! First we got to pick out an outfit from the rack filled with abstract nude suits. You can imagine that we were already thrilled! The garments were actually quite nice, design-wise. All suited up we made some selfies, everybody did, and went into the main room. The large space is filled with 4 or so, giant turds (a lump of excrement) laid on Persian carpets. So, imagine people walking in these suits in between under and behind those brown sculptures (which were quite realistic, material-wise). We could not stop laughing, honestly, we had SO much fun!

xoxo Mimi

PS

At the end of the day all the suits were sprayed, not sure with what, maybe an odor killer or sanatising product.

Poop-cock-and-tits fun

Of course there is a deeper meaning behind all the poop-cock-and-tits fun. Read what Gelitin has to say about that below, or just go visit the Vorm-Fellows-Attitude show and find out for yourself, which is always the best thing to do, in our opinion.

Goodbye Daan van Golden at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Goodbye Daan van Golden at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen

Less than a month ago, on January 9, Dutch artist Daan van Golden passed away. In Van Golden’s memory museum Boijmans van Beuningen (in Rotterdam) staged a temporary presentation for his family and friends to bid the artist a worthy farewell. A small selection of his impressive oeuvre can be seen in the Serra Gallery till February 19, 2017. (Read more at www.boijmans.nl)

This weekend on Saturday February 4, the day on which Daan van Golden would have celebrated his 81st birthday, the family was at the presentation. Mimi Berlin Blogger Team went to offer condolences in person. And Yes we took snaps. Snaps?! you ask of us. Yes we did, sometimes one doesn’t know what do in a situation because of the sadness or just beacause you are stunned, and then you just take snaps…..At least we, at Mimi Berlin do. (We have been taken snaps at even more sad occassions than this one, which we never will post because they are too private or awkward, but we feel we can post these series; in memory of Mr van Golden.) Goodbye Daan van Golden.
Thank you Mr & Mrs. J.
