Site-Specific Project by Spanish Artist Maider López at Witte de With
Maider López's projects focus on the intriguingly humorous or the extraordinary behind the obvious and ordinary.
ROTTERDAM.- Polder Cup is the latest site-specific project by Spanish artist Maider López. The facade of Witte de With functions as an open call to participate in a one-day football championship, which takes place on September 4, 2010 in the polders of Ottoland (Municipality of Graafstroom).

Maider López's projects focus on the intriguingly humorous or the extraordinary behind the obvious and ordinary. López creates various events and situations for individuals to gather through a common language, in this case, football. Polder Cup becomes a moment where diverse groups of the society are brought together through play, sports and social exchange. Unlike a typical football game, López's displaced football field intersected by water channels, challenges the rules of football and encourages players to seek and invent new strategies.

Not only does the location create an unusual situation, it reflects on the long Dutch history of fighting against water and the consensus society. With this project, López hopes to transform the function of the polders, going beyond its historical and agricultural uses, to host a public event held within the framework of a common sporting match. Through the participation of football players and audience from all walks of life, the polder will undergo a transformation in which its use can be opened up for new interpretations, challenging the way in which we perceive our spatial surroundings.

Maider López is delighted to invite football and art lovers to participate in the first and only Polder Cup, either as players or spectators.

Be part of the project and subscribe to this unique championship between 3 June and 15 August 2010.

More information and subscription form available on www.poldercup.nl.
