POPPOSITIONS 2018 | Andreas Arndt

In 2018 Vleeshal participated for the first time in POPPOSITIONS with a solo presentation by Swedish artist Andreas Arndt. Established in 2012 as a counterpoint to mainstream art fairs, over the years, POPPOSITIONS has grown into the leading alternative market for contemporary art. From 19–22 April 2018, POPPOSITIONS presented its 7th edition In Watermelon Sugar, during the week of Art Brussels. At the fair, Andreas Arndt showed his film installation Beaver Fever.

As part of the fair's public programme Andreas Arndt gave a talk where he elaborated on his filmic project Beaver Fever.

Beaver Fever describes a documentation film crew, led by a director, art theoretician and a social scientist, which investigates a beaver colony on a lonely island in Sweden, and categorizing their achievements between functional and dysfunctional. Whereas beavers normally focus on building dams, lodges and channels, the beavers on this very island seem to have made a further step in their transformation of their environment: constantly chewing, they have left small objects on the island, objects neither suitable for constructing dams nor lodges and as such abstract. The filmic work documents the beavers’ objects and the film crew’s search for an answer to the question, how these objects came about, as well as where the beavers being behind it, might be.


In 2015 Vleeshal kicked of its Nomadic Program, as an extension of its existing exhibition program in Middelburg. In its Nomadic Program Vleeshal goes on tour, organising exhibitions and other events in collaboration with venues in the Netherlands and abroad, such as Art Rotterdam, Amsterdam Art Weekend, the Spring Performance Festival, WIELS Art Book Fair, Brussels and Poppositions, Brussels.
