In 2016 P/////AKT started a new programme: The P/////AKTPOOL. It allows young and talented artists, who have recently graduated from one of the Dutch academies, an opportunity to develop and showcase their practice in the course of six months, supported by the P/////AKT-team. Each year two top talents are invited to organise three consecutive presentations in the tower-annex, next to the exhibition space. These presentations run simultaneously to the main program. After Stefan Cammeraat’s successful first round, it is now time for the second talent that P/////AKT scouted for the POOL last year: Thomas Swinkels, a 2015 graduate of St. Joost, Breda.

For his first exhibition; I Can’t Live In A Living Room, Swinkels brings together several pieces; the inner self of a trashcan, a lost architectural artefact and the centre of the centre of a drilling hole. There will be a hole in the wall and some fresh paint on it. By subtracting or peeling off certain parts of the city landscape, their new potential can be tested in the exhibition space.
