The patterned hospital scrub provides an intermediary imaginary between patient/doctor, a momentary or prolonged resting spot for nervous eyes and a distraction from shiny clinical objects. When I was young my dentist’s office and uniforms were Hawaii themed, for instance. In this case we have a vista-web of surfing santas. Surfing on an extended chain wave. It’s a funny design, but once lost in the spinning patchwork of santas you maybe feel a little sick. Multiplying prismatic shirtless santas. Santa, the patron saint of the western consumers’ spending calendar… on holiday. Lost in a net of himselves. A legion of surfing shirtless sunglazzed santas riding a wave around your nurses midsection.  (KG)


Our first show with Perri takes place at one of the oldest and dearest canteens in Amsterdam, where this space derives its name. Canteens are informal eating spaces or snack bars, usually located at ones place of work. Kantine sees a productive relationship between the work and the appetite and will extend this into our program.
