As a foundation, A Perfect Day offers a platform for the combined art of drawing and text. The idea for the scenography for the five annual expositions was to provide an environment in which exhibition, presentation, workshop, lecture, film, concert and party would take place simultaneously in the same space and inspire each other. It thus becomes an environment that offers space for unexpected encounters, spontaneity, and improvisation; a space for possibilities. The core of the design is a sky blue foam-colored furniture as a back-drop for the hybrid program. It is an object constructed from a sea of pedestals, on which you can exhibit, stand, sit, and hold interviews, performances, or workshops.
The exhibition is completely circular: the stacked and painted pedestals are leftovers from previous exhibitions in the Eye-Film and Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam among others. The pedestals and walls are returned to the storage for subsequent re-use. The shop furniture in the small adjoining space has been made from leftover materials from the ING building, which was to be demolished. The upcycled furniture has been stored by A Perfect Day for future use. Exhibitings works from a.o. Guy Vording, John Körmeling, Kamagurka, Koos Busters, Miriam Elia, Olga Scholten, Paul Faassen en Rogier Roeters.
