EX-MÊKH is the name for the collaboration of visual artists Ellen Rodenberg, Maarten Schepers and Kees Koomen. These artists all have their individual professional practices as an artist but next to that they show their works in their mutual contexts and they try to develop a relationship with the spaces in which exhibitions are held.
Point of departurefor the making of an exhibition is the physical and social nature of the exhibition space. Since 2006 these artists organized numerous exhibitions under the name EX-MÊKH. The exhibitions varied from an intense happening during one evening to a series of short exhibitions within a month. Depending on the specific nature of the venue and the subject of the exhibition visual artists, musicians, writers and designers were invited to participate.
