The exhibition WHAT S HE BUILDING IN THERE, reference to a song by Tom Waits, will be the inaugural show hosted at CLAPTRAP.


It will display a series of works by young international artists all actively working to shape a new narrative in the contemporary arts. Deciding to engage with materiality as a whole, giving it motion, strength or fragility, the oeuvres of each artist belongs to now. Reaching the importance of tactility, the stimulation of senses and the experience of simply being.
