Exhibtion: 24 November – 11 December 2011 // Kruisstraat 19, Hoorn
On Thursday, November 24th, HMK will open the Light Bar, a residency-project by Canadian
artist collective Instant Coffee. The Light Bar was built in an empty storefront, at Kruisstraat 19, in the
centre of Hoorn. You are invited to attend the opening, with snacks, drinks, light therapy and video’s
from 7 PM. Instant Coffee’s members are: Cecilia Berkovic, Jinhan Ko, Kelly Lycan, Jenifer Papararo,
Kate Monro and Khan Lee (CAN) Instant Coffee already built a similar Light Bar during the artprogramme
of the Vancouver WinterOlympics of 2010. In Vancouver, the Light Bar was a response to the city’s dark and
rainy winterseason. In Hoorn, Instant Coffee will light up the Dutch days before christmas with a large
full-spectrum light-installation in a storefront at Kruisstraat 19, in the centre of Hoorn.
Instant Coffee defines itself as a ‘service-oriented’ artistcollective; and will be hosting a
series of events, such as light rock, light reading and light workshops at the Light Bar.
