Dutch Galleries and Artists at Armory Art Week

 

Gallerie Ron Mandos

Gallerie Ron Mandos presents: “In 1512, enslaved Africans escape their captors to live in the South American jungle. In 1652, Dutchman Jan van Riebeeck lands two ships at the Cape of Good Hope. In 1956, Gordon Parks photographs children in Alabama, waiting to drink from a ‘colored only’ drinking fountain. In 2012, South African security forces kill 34 mine workers who are on strike.”

At The Armory Show 2020, Galerie Ron Mandos will present a group show with artworks by Kendell Geers (ZA, 1968), Remy Jungerman (SR, 1959), Mohau Modisakeng (ZA, 1986) and Esiri Erheriene-Essi (UK, 1982). All were inspired by the aforementioned historic events and their works are intertwined with concepts of g black identity, inequality, the African diaspora and the colonial history of the Netherlands, where the gallery is based.

Carpenters Workshop Gallery will present a show by Atelier van Lieshout: “Over the last three decades van Lieshout has produced work that straddles the fields of art, design, and architecture, creating pieces that question and parody power structures and systems. At the heart of his work is a desire to undermine the myth of the artistic genius. Not afraid to embrace taboo, van Lieshout believes that “art should be a place where there are very few limits.” AVL have gained international recognition for their sculptural installations featuring controversial or sinister nuances. Alongside playful perversion, their work conveys disdain for limitation and a longing for freedom.”

Dutch Galleries and Artists at VOLTA

Gallery Delaive

Gallery Delaive will present a solo exhibition of Japanese artist Ayako Rokkaku. She will be present and will work live on new paintings in the booth during the show. “Rokkaku never attended art school but is completely self-taught, developing her own unique
painting technique. She applies acrylic paint directly to canvas or cardboard with her bare hands. She starts painting without a predefined idea, painting what comes naturally until a composition slowly starts to emerge. A dreamy, colorful landscape, with tiny floating
flowers, animals and skulls. A recurring element in her work is the prominent presence of young girls, which she paints in the manga style, with large eyes and long limbs.”

The Cynthia Corbett Gallery

 

 

The Cynthia Corbett gallery presents Isabelle van Zeijl: “In a contemporary art world that condemns beauty as camouflage for conceptual shallowness, championing high aesthetics is nothing short of rebellion. Van Zeijl takes female beauty ideals from the past, and sabotages them in the context of today.As a woman she experiences prejudices against women; misogyny in numerous ways including sex discrimination, belittling/violence against women and sexual objectification. Van Zeijl aestheticises these prejudices in her work to visually discuss this troubling dichotomy, presenting a new way of seeing female beauty. An oppressive idealization of beauty is tackled in her work through unique female character and emotion.”

Galerie Roger Katwijk

Galerie Roger Katwijk will present a solo exhibition by South Korean artist Jae Ko: “My work continues to evolve as I experiment with the texture, thickness, width, and color of paper as sculptural material. My work also continues to evolve as a conceptual practice—the transformation of everyday objects into something extraordinary. I love working with paper because it challenges me to use a common medium to create uncommon forms that provide audiences with new visual and sensual experiences. At times I am able to transform the paper; at other times the paper transforms itself. These acts also transform the surrounding space, as well as the perspective of the viewer.”

“For VOLTA New York, Maulwurf developed a special concept as a continuance of her recent solo exhibition ‘The Carbon War Room’ at the Gemeentemuseum The Hague, an installation of a large scale charcoal drawing in contrast to intense small size drawings.”
