Philip Vermeulen presents his installation Flap Flap at Clash Groningen.

A stick moves up and down which makes a canvas of gigantic dimensions flutter, like some sort of mating dance. It starts seductively slow. It floats, it waves. Gradually transforming into aggressive flapping, it almost rips itself apart. It flaunts, it gasps. The fabric creates stroboscopic, hypnotic patterns as the square structure pulls and releases the canvas from each corner. Chaotic fluttering contrasts good-tempered waving, while the material is constantly testing its movement capacity in a rhythmic choreography.
