The melting point of a solid is the temperature at which it changes state from solid to liquid. Ice turns into water.

The exhibition ‘Melting Point’ at AKINCI during the warm days of May and June involves a project by the young Dutch artist duo Teun Castelein (b.1980, Roelofarendsveen, NL) and Coralie Vogelaar (b. 1981 Delft, NL) who shipped over a block of ice of a melting glacier from Greenland to the Netherlands. With this project titled “My Polar Ice”, Castelein and Vogelaar make a statement about the importance and at the same time pointlessness of trying to save nature. This project first presented at the Rijksakademie Amsterdam last year, will be re-installed at AKINCI.

The momentum of change and transformation is the leading theme of this exhibition and describes the specific works selected for this show by Stephan Balkenhol (b. 1957, Fritzlar, DE) Roger Cremers (1972, Susteren, NL)  Moyna Flannigan (b. 1963, Kirkcaldy, UK), Juul Hondius (b. 1970 Ens, NL), Elke Krystufek (1970, Vienna, AT) and Anne Wenzel (b. 1972 in Schlüttorf, DE).
