ABOUT    


INDEBT is a cultural destination and non-profit organization dedicated to ‘creating space’. The fluid project manifests itself through an exhibition program, communal gatherings, and the facilitation of cultural locations throughout the city.
     In both its organizational structure as well as curatorial selection, INDEBT aims to rethink conventions and expectations in the art world and broader creative field.

GROUP SHOW | NO SPOON
           
INDEBT is excited to present No Spoon, featuring work by Ciro Duclos (1991 NL/PE), Benjamin Harpsoe (1986 DK), Fabian Bredt (1989 DE), Martin Brandt (1988 DK), Noah Latif Lamp (1991 SU/NL) and introducing Tom Galesloot (1985 NL). In addition, the exhibition will be supported by music from Lord Akton.

     The exhibition title No Spoon is derived from The Matrix, and credit where credit is due, internet somebody Hannah-Louise Roxx explained it most aptly.



     No Spoon posits a worry concerning the near paralytic state of un-production, un-collectivity and an overall lack of self-initiation and engagement in and by Amsterdam. Withing the exhibition national and international artists explore local and inter-local relationships through a wide array of mediums and backgrounds. The artists are all committed to combat the cultural climate-- clogged up by dependency issues regarding the municipal and gallery reliance that governs Amsterdam current.
    For example, through the implementation of intermediaries in his practice, Duclos aims to explore the grey areas of legality, artistic representation and exclusion-- poignant notions within the current creative stratus. Fabian Bredt engages in a similar discourse. Mirrored mattresses adorn the walls, facilitating a hypnotic interplay between the supposed * filthy word* ‘sexyness’ that so often is sought after in a galleristic context, and its reflexive attitude towards art-viewer and buyer alike. The reflexivity is reminiscent of a bachelor pad’s ceiling mirror has descended into the bed itself.

    Overall the No Spoon exhibit displays a strong grass-roots type call to action. Where self-initiation, dada-esque comradery and an essential intersocietal “hussle hussle” are ever present. This ”hussle hussle” has been able to mobilize an entirely new group of upcoming artists that are willing to throw the whole cutlery drawer out-- no butter knives, lobster forks and no silver spoons.
