Visual artist Charlotte Krieger and producer LYZZA are the two selected artists for this year’s Foam X ADE Playground project. The experimental style of both artists forms the base for this challenging project. Krieger and LYZZA have been working together on an audio-visual installation which comes to life during a live performance by the two artists on 18 October at Het Stenen Hoofd, a remarkable no man’s land situated along the IJ river.
The installation opens on Thursday 18 October at 7pm and is on show until 15 November 2018 at Het Stenen Hoofd.
