    (c) 2012, Cassander Eeftinck Schattenkerk

    Guestcurator: Bas Hendrikx
    Artists: Kasper Jacobs, Yarre Stooker, Bas Schevers, Harry Meadley, Alex Farrar
    Exhibition: June 10 – July 1, 2012

    Eyes On The Prize deals with the differences and similarities between the fields of sports and the
    arts and applies the rules of the game to the unwritten laws of the visual arts. During their resi-
    dency in the past weeks five artists have developed new works for the exhibition.

    Eyes On The Prize creates a clear connection between the themes of sports, competition and visual
    arts. Themes used by the artists include ‘the game’, ‘elite sports’ and ‘dueling’. By linking a popular
    topic such as sports to the arts, HMK explores the roles art can play, both inside and out the Chapel.

    For his project Bas Schevers will be coached by artist André Kok, Kasper Jacobs will collaborate with
    locals on the script for a new video work, Yarre Stooker organises a Wingstyle Linefootball league, a
    sport developed by the artist, and Alex Farrar and Harry Meadley will start a collaboration based on
    the ‘Code Duello'; a set of 19th century rules for one-on-one combats. In their work competition is not
    just a subject, but also defines their way of working.
