An exhibition held during Birds of Paradise Festival in 2022 (9-13 March 2022) @ TivoliVredenburg’s Park 6
” Artist slash designer Mees Joachim van Amesfoort
(NL, 1994) was asked and tasked to design and
conceptualize the visual language of the festival.
Quite quickly it turned into a world in itself, where
all the artists of the lineup are (re-)presented
through birdlike avatars and are delved into,
through accommodating them within
micro-universes of their own (3D Artist Rooms).
The birds in themselves are metaphors for the
artists, their practice, their art, their (projects’)
context, etcetera. With all of these aspects viewed
and projected through the lens of van Amesfoort’s
mind’s eye. An egg was laid and forth came the
manifestations of an amalgamation of influences,
inspirations and children of the brain.
The concept of the ‘3D Artist Room’ offer the
artists the possibility to curate a unique context
program by sharing personal perspectives on their
music and identity through a plurality of media. In
these artist rooms these perspectives and idioms
of identity are presented through objectoids, all of
which represent the topics at hand.
On show in this exhibition are 2D prints of the
rooms and 3D prints of the birds, of which
the latter is made possible by Utrecht native
3D-printerette, ‘MiniPrinten’. ”
