To start with, there probably is no cadre. But at least some things can be seen as one. Even in their most rigid shape, in their most measurable moment, they remain a momentary one.
Partially build on top of the roof of the KABK and partially located in the small room on top of all other rooms, this installation uses its location to indicate its reference points:
the grand horizon and a small confined space inside.
Through the friction of these two cadres, the beautiful necessity for "a border", "a mark" in the complexity of the phenomena surrounding us as humans is elaborated on.
In order to grasp, understand, a point in space must be taken, taken to be left alone again in the right time.
The wheel outside, slowly moving round, til hitting the bell; only to continue its cycle once more, takes exactly 20 minutes and 27 seconds for one full rotation.
This is the time its takes for one sound-wave of the earths (the sphere itself, as a mass) lowest sound to complete in time.
It is not the measurements and the calculations that make my hands reach out in longing for- but the feeling when one closes their eyes and for a brief moment gets a sense of immense space and all that has a location in it, slowely floating around.
„I want to handle things, that are bigger than me“ says Janne Schipper. With this, Janne proves to be part of a generation of artists and designers which has an affinity for science. They aim for knowledge; not personal experience, but comprehensible, accessible knowledge for everyone. Scientists have always done that by asking questions and by building arguments. Now artists and designers do the same. But they are not afraid to strengthen their arguments through intuition, aesthetics and visual competency. Science has become our closest relative, rather than craft or entertainment. The poetry of Janne’s work is deeply related to her look at the world, an open yet complex view. Janne has chosen the tower of the academy building on the Prinsessegracht for her final project, transforming it into a mysterious bell tower. It creates an expectation which is rewarded with a moment of contemplation and lustful curiosity, rather than a spectacle. “
-Klaus Jung, head of Fine Art department KABK.
A performance based in public space. Located in The Hague, The Netherlands, 2016.
a sound installation made out of four consecutive rooms, in each single room one voice can be heard. All voices part of one music piece: a Fuge written for one soprano, one alto, one tenor, one bass.
A collaboration between four classically trained singers (Eva Modic -soprano, Carolina Alves -mezzosoprano, Darius Hulme -tenor, Geert van der Kaaij -bass) a classically trained composer (Bogdan Lucic) and a frame-maker (Jacco Schipper) constituted the creation of Gospodi Pomiluj.
Creation and re-creation, an echo effect, from undefined space to assuming a confined space as a reference point.
A voice starts singing, creating the foundation for the continuation of the piece. From a chaotic space, a frame is introduced. Consequently another voice contributes, only having the freedom to express small differences to the created melody. The new voice is constantly forced to refer back to the foundation set by the first voice.
Then force in opposite direction, resulting in an atonale part.
Finally all introduced voices weave through each other, in a complex unity, at times complementing each other, at times totally disconnected.

Installation from ground- floor, up to the roof.
Making sense, or making no sense based on a at first glance logical understanding of phenomena that surround us as human beings.
Can one get a sense of that which does only partially or hardly correspond with human measurements?
The installation "De Torenkamer", located in the staircase of a tower, was a first step to dive into the notions of roles played by matter and humans in space. Like a silent theatre of objects, the visitors had to move from the ground-floor to the top-floor in order to meet all the "players", being indispensable actors themselves.
The gaze of a person, socially determined, formulated by a mentally created cadre; establishing the character of the world around us.
