“Fragments” — an online screening by Silvia Martes

Still from ‘The Revolutions That Did Not Happen’ (2021) by Silvia Martes

Hooray! Page Not Found turned four!

These past years have seen over a 100(!) events taking place in our space, each one a wonderful exchange about publishing, making, writing, reading. We are truly grateful to all – artists, curators, designers, board members, collaborators, volunteers, and our visitors and audience – who contributed to make our initiative what it is today. We are looking forward in the coming year to many more explorations, reflections and voices, and their sharing with you.

For now, we think this anniversary deserves a unique treat, and the amazing Silvia Martes agrees! She gracefully accepted our commission for an online screening: “Fragments” is an exclusive cut of three of her films. Silvia’s work — mystical, evocative and dark, reflects on the current surreality of our times, yet reminds us of the ever-urgent call to love the world into being. The works featured in this commission are: ‘To Confirm You Are Not a Robot, Place a Check in the Box Next to “I’m Not a Robot”.’ (2021), ‘The Revolutions That Did Not Happen’ (2021), and ‘The Restless Dread of Some(thing) Evil’ (2019).

Silvia Martes, Eindhoven, 1985, completed her BA in Fine Arts at the Audiovisual Department (VAV) at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam in 2013. In 2019 she started a postdoctoral art residency at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. In July 2021 Martes had her first solo exhibition at Museum De Pont (Tilburg). In September 2021 she won the Theodora Niemeiijer Prize from the Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven). In the same year she was shortlisted for the Prix de Rome and exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum.
