Rive Roshan – Shifting Perspectives
Museum JAN, Amstelveen
January 29 – August 29, 2021

The emerging experimental art and design duo Rive Roshan strive to enchant their audience with installations and objects that challenge you to reimagine the world from a new perspective. For Museum JAN they will create three site-specific spatial experiences in which glass plays a surprising role.

Welcome to the wondrous world of Rive Roshan
From 29 January until 29 August 2021, visitors to Museum JAN will be treated to the wonderful universe of Rive Roshan. Divided over the various exhibition spaces of Museum JAN, the duo will create three immersive experiences that challenge our perception of space, light and time. At times you won’t even realise what you are looking at! Natural effects such as ripples in water, wind-shaped patterns in sand and magical reflections of light are closely resembled by the experimental and highly refined use of everyday materials. This creates visual and spatial meditations that shift our perspective on the world.

The work of the Amsterdam-based studio Rive Roshan forms a contemporary connection between the unique permanent collection of international glass art of Jan van de Togt, the founding father
of Museum JAN, and the broader vision behind the museum’s pro- gramming to unlock art and culture as an essential part of society. The basis for all this is amazement. “We feel our role as artists and designers is to offer people a new and inspiring narrative to build a progressive future” say Ruben de la Rive Box and Golnar Roshan.

Rive Roshan
Rive Roshan was founded in London in 2013 by Dutch designer Ruben de la Rive Box (Naarden, 1981) and Iranian-Australian designer Golnar Roshan (Sydney, 1986). The studio initiates projects, exhibitions and ideas based on an intrinsic need to touch, inspire, and move others through new insights. De la Rive Box and Roshan have worked for various international design studios, including those of Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders and Tord Boontje. The duo has been living and working in Amsterdam since 2017. Rive Roshan’s work has been on show all over the world, including the Musée des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, the Powerhouse Museum Sydney, the Shanghai Museum of Glass and recently with an impressive installation at BIG ART Zaandam.
