      An Open House

      Hubertushuis, Amsterdam
    2. In An Open House, Leonor Antunes furthers the interest that has underpinned her practice—the work of lesser-known figures from the history of twentieth-century architecture and design—by creating a new performance work for Aldo van Eyck’s Hubertushuis. The building was designed by Van Eyck in 1973 as a home for mothers in difficulty, and is characterised by its strong use of colour. The performance is part of Antunes research into the architects Aldo van Eyck and Lina Bo Bardi which she is undertaking as part of the commission.
    3. Leonor AntunesAn Open House is presented as part of If I Can’t Dance’s Finale for Edition VI – Event and Duration (2015 – 2016). The work is performed by Leonor Antunes, Sara Campos, Valentini Curandi, Tess van Eyck, Tiana Hemlock-Yensen, Iva Supic Jankovic, Laima Jaunzema, Avan Omar Muhammad, Kristel Rigaud, Helen Zeru, and Elisa Zuppini.
    1. Leonor Antunes is one of four artists commissioned by If I Can’t Dance to produce a new work as part of Edition VI – Event and Duration (2015–2016).

      Leonor Antunes creates sculptures that reflect the environment surrounding them, and make reference to the work of lesser-known figures from the history of twentieth-century architecture and design. Her interest in craft and handwork is present in her use of material such as wood, bamboo, leather, brass, rope, and string. These materials often find sculptural form in her work as vertical or horizontal demarcations in space, or as woven transparent nets and grids.

      For her commission, Leonor Antunes will produce a new sculptural-installation, in which she considers the latent performativity of her practice together with the effects of time and space on materials.
