A Picnic Frenzy is the outcome of a collaboration that was conceived as a solution without answers. A result presented without any compromise; in which the works are hung, bundled and perched on the floor. A Picnic Frenzy is part of the Apprentice Master project by Kunstpodium-T.
Need for get together
A Picnic Frenzy was born from the need to come together. Prior to the exhibition, a collaboration was started in which a JPEG relay race was held. Each artist sent random JPEGs to each other, to which the next responded, and so on. Over the past year, the group of apprentices have learned that there are no rules to the game and that any kind of grip is rigorously shattered. That is why they have not applied their own rules. The crushing of the mundane did not limit them from entering into a collaboration. On the contrary: it made the group see the possibilities of remote working. The apprentices and master met each other insecure, horrified and unknown, via a screen on the internet, in their own living rooms. They got to know each other through handwriting, shared images and visual language. Have you met someone in a few clicks… and it just clicked?

Apprentice Master is a project by Kunstpodium T in which recently graduated artists, together with renowned artists, embark on a one-year exchange project. They meet regularly and exchange ideas and experiences.
This collaboration between Apprentices and Master ultimately results in exhibitions that can be visited by the public. These take place at Kunstpodium T or at one of the guest locations. Each season ends with the Season Highlights exhibition. Linked to this is the Jan Naaijkens Prize.
The project is currently in its thirteenth edition in 2020/2021.
