CIC x Arttenders

Art at Work Project
Iwan Smit

When we gave artist Iwan Smit the challenge to turn a Game Room at the CIC office into a piece of art he enthusiastically accepted. His proposal became the first of a series of creative spaces at CIC as part of our Art at Work Project.

Iwan Smit x Art at work

Iwan Smit (1989) is an Artist Extraordinaire in the Rotterdam art scene. He can be recognized by his bold and unique style. His colorful mind unfolds through illustrations, sculptures and paintings.

Iwan designed the first room in the Art at Work Project : the Game Room. CIC wants to offer their entrepreneurs a communal space in which they can relax and play games.

For CIC x Arttenders, Iwan created an installation titled ‘Olympic Wasteland‘. He describes: “This Olympic Wasteland depicts a landscape once occupied by athletes. What remains is this serene world where long forgotten artifacts transform their surroundings in a garden of sculptures.”

About the Art at Work Project

The Art at Work Project consists of a series of creative spaces in the CIC offices. These spaces are customized by various artists in collaboration with Arttenders through different forms of applied arts. This creates immersive and inspirational rooms, where entrepreneurs can meet, be inspired, work and socialize.

The production of Olympic Wasteland would not have been possible without the generous productional support of Poly Products. Thank you for strengthening our athlete. The Art at Work Project in Rotterdam is made possible in collaboration with Kraaijvanger Architects and Design Brokers.
