ROTATOR. 11 YEARS OF STUDIO RUWEDATA

Enter into the world of Studio Ruwedata where contradictions play off each other: (im)perfection and illusions brought through wall sculptures, (light) installations, screen prints and prints.

ROTATOR highlights an 11-year timeline graphic design and artwork by Studio Ruwedata against recent work that concentrates more on installations and 3-D work / sculptures. Kelder’s recent works of art are laminated wooden installations / wall sculptures that create a collage of typographical slogans, illustrations and parts of neon adverts with the typical Las Vegas-style sign language. The neon adverts that inspire Kelder are characterised by flashing lights and colours. By reimagining these elements in a more sober, black and white context, they assume a melancholy edge. He takes timeless subjects like love, temptation, violence and ageing as a theme. His work has an undeniably humorous edge, but the message has a critical edge, socially.

Opening:

OFFICE TRAX 017 – XZISTEH

Office Trax is the new mixtape series from Studio Ruwedata where different artists are asked to comprise a mix with tunes of which they think are suited for a working situation. While one likes to listen to chaotic jungle, the other likes to listen to unending ambient tracks while working. This is exactly what we want to hear in this mixtape series, the artist’s own vision on ‘work music’. We want to hear what the artist listens to when he or she has to do a large assignment, when he or she is in the heat of the moment because of a deadline or what they listen to when they need to keep their mind at ease. With this approach, we expect a wide variety of mixes, which align with the different needs of the working people.

For this mix Xzisteh decided to switch up from his usual tunes, which are dubstep and grime, to another kind of electronic music from the UK. While he normally don’t really like techno, these kind of producers manage to put all other sort of elements from the likes of dubstep, jungle, grime and create a really nice flow. This kind of flow is exactly what he likes when he have to get stuff done, it doesn’t distract him too much and has these moments that will keep your energy levels up! For this mix Xzisteh decided to get both his vinyl aswell his digital tracks out, which gave the process of recording the mix a nice edge!

WRECKED & PACKED PATCH

Patch design for Wrecked & Packed release by Kypski. Get it here: http://studioruwedata.nl/site/product/wrecked-packed-patch/

The acclaimed Wreck Fader album by Kypski saw it’s vinyl release about 2 years ago. Due to the succes of Kypski’s remix projects he did (Love Sick from Mura Masa and Drank & Drugs by Lil Kleine & Ronnie Flex) Lowriders Recordings thought it was an excellent idea to remix Wreck Fader and that’s why they asked a diverse range of Dutch producers to wreck the tracks of Kypski’s album. The remix album follows the intensity of the original in an extraordinary way.

Studio Ruwedata took the existing typography and made his own remix on the artwork. The record comes with photo copied inlay, stickers and a limited edition ‘patch’. Black & White, DIY punk style artwork on transparent vinyl.

Office Trax 016 comes from Rotterdam based Dj and producer Atiq. He has to say the following about the mix:
“For the office trax series I felt that I could do something different from what people normally hear from me. Progressive breaks is some kind of a guilty pleasure genre of mine which I also like to call “Breakbeat Trance” and I think that it works great listening to while working. For this mix I dove a little deeper into the genre that has been pretty much abandoned since a few years and found some tracks that fitted in nicely. All in all it`s a nice collection of tracks that I personally love and equally work together very well in a mix that helps you get inspired while working behind your computer.”

GEVELTROTS, WORK IN PROGRESS

My sketch design was selected from 104 entries and will soon be placed on the facade of the Tweede Schansstraat in Rotterdam! The organization asked me what I’m doing:

What are you doing (in relation to your Geveltrots design)?
I’m trying to work out the sketch that I had been sent out, to a nice final design. The sketch was quite dark and did not have enough contrast.

Have you ever previously created something in the public space?
I have several designs made in the public space. Some were temporary but the last major public artwork is permanently. Check it out at Boomgaardsstraat (nearby Witte de Withstraat, WORM).

Your work will hang in Bospolder. What would you like to give to the residents of Bospolder?

Through these works, the residents of Bospolder can rediscover their neighborhood!
