Going back in time: Daniel Gould’s 3D List, Art in Amsterdam #14
Last weekend, 3D asked a gallery holder for the price list. "Don't have one, it's all up here," he said pointing to his head. I then asked, "Any red dots?" He replied, "Red dots? That's not what it's all about!" Huh? Of course, it was refreshing to hear this; but was he being facetious? Don't know. It would be nice in the perfect world where price lists or the selling of art was not THAT important.
But even though 3D often describes Amsterdam as a contemporary Utopia the landlords still insist on their monthly stipend and the green grocer only accepts cash. I am reminded of a book title by the American satirist Jean Shephard, "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash." You got have the moolah to survive. With that said, it was nice to see an opening with a bright red splash of those little dots. Amsterdam's unemployment rate is at 6.6% which is about half of the EU's average. That means that times are not as tough here, but you would think so when you hear people saying "I can't afford to buy art!" Hey, folks, you can't afford NOT to. If it wasn't for the Amsterdam art "industry" it wouldn't be Amsterdam, but perhaps Rotterdam or Den Haag.. Oh, the horror, the horror!
Bits & Pieces:
What Is Happening This Week:
What You Missed Last Week:
BITS & PIECES:
Life is full of surprises. The current king of art kitsch (whether you judge it as "good" or "bad") is Jeff Koons. From his work your first thought about what he collects personally might be stuffed animals; the type you give your young daughter or niece as a gift. "A connector of art histories dots," by Randy Kennedy, says in a Int Herald Tribune article that Koons own personal collection is classical at heart. On his "salmon-pink walls of his bedroom" hangs an early 16th century painting of a very tender-looking Jesus by Quentine Massys, the first important painter of the Antwerp school...a risque Fragonard [across the room] stares back." Also works by Manet, Courbet, Poussin and "scholars' delights like Nikolaus Krijpfer and Cornelis van Haarlem." http://www.iht.com/ (27th., Feb. 2010.)
What's in a title? The rock group Aerosmith will shortly begin an eleven show run called: "Cocked, Locked and Ready to Rock." Cute.
Last call for applications for artists, designers and theoreticians to apply for the next semester at Jan van Eyck Academie beginning 1st January 2011. You can apply for a one-year or a two-year research period. The school has been cited by the Int Herald Tribune as the best in the world for design. More info: http://www.janvaneyck.nl/
This should tickle the funny bone...Someone named Ron Mulder wants the 2022 Winter Olympics for Holland. Skiing events? No problem. He suggest that dredging companies build a 1,000 meter high mountain. Hey, what about snow? Artificial, you say. But it must still be cold enough to make it. 3D wonders what Mulder is smoking. Sure doesn't sound like it's Marlboros. From http://www.dutchnews.nl/, (1st March.)
"Making an art out of credit rolls," by Alice Rawsthorn. The lady doesn't give up. 3D seems to recall reading her plea last year to include a new category to the list of awards for the Academy Award. "Great film titles might not be essential, but they're definitely desirable. Like a beautifully designed book jacket or (back in ye o'der days) record sleeves, they're unexpected, but rather lovely gifts. Yet most contemporary title sequences seem to have been tossed off as afterthoughts." She goes on to say of the current Academy Award nominees like "'The Hurt Locker' is an extraordinary brave and poignant film, buts its titles are best described as forgettable. As for 'Avatar,' it's a technological triumph marred by achingly awful title design. Dodgy typography, winsome symbolism and yukky colors are just a few of its graphic design crimes." Is any one listening in Hollywood? Tune in next year.. http://www.iht.com/, (1st March.)
...And speaking of film...Cappy J. has submitted a second contribution, in as many weeks, for the 3D List. Check this out: "Alice in Wonderland." The Disney studio is about to premier it's newest version. The British Film Institute offers, on line, the first film rendition done, in 1903, by Percy Stow and Cecil Hepworth. It is 9'32" long. The special effects are truly amazing considering the time period. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeIXfdogJbA. Enjoy!
According to a report by Dr. Clare McAndrew titled, "The International Art Market 2007-2009, Trends in the Art Trade during Global Recession," "Wealthy buyers have been switching away from expensive cars, yachts and jets in favour of assets with long-term tangible value such as art and antiques. These 'investments of passion' have meant that, although the world market in art and antiques has suffered during the economic downturn, it has performed better than expected. The report was commissioned by The European Fine Art Foundation which organizes TEFAF (Maastricht, 12th-21st March). For more info contact Clare McAndrews PhD: email@example.com
...Also, TEFAF has announced that "An exquisitely beautiful study....[by] Sandro Botticelli, tempera on panel, titled, 'Madonna and Child with the Infant Saint John,'" will be on offer by the art dealer Dickinson. Hey, if you got 11 million euro on hand and burning a hole in your pocket, it can be yours.
...And speaking of Art Fairs...Art Amsterdam will be at the RAI from the 26th-30th May. There will be 127 galleries exhibiting with 21 new comers.. For out-of-towners there is a special "hotel service" with rooms beginning at 105 euro per night. www.rai.nl/hotelservice. No web-site on annoucement.
"foamlab" is back with "LOMOGRAPHY." The premise behind the term begins with this headline: "Don't worry about any rules: 1. Take your camera everywhere you go. 2. Use it anytime day or night. 3. Lomography isn't an interference in your life, but part of it. 4.. Try to shot from the hip. 5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible. 6. Don't think. 7. Be Fast. 8. You don't have to know before hand what you captured on film. 9. Afterwards either. 10. Don't worry about any rules." 3D thinks that they should retitle these ten points "The Ten Commandments of Lomography." Folks, we got a NEW religion. Just what the world needs. See more about the exhibition under the rubric "What Is Happening This Week," for FRIDAY: 5th March @ "foam."
If you are attending the Armory Show in New York, check out "Dutch Art Now," at The National Arts Club," and see the work of Reiner Gerritsen, Diana Blok, Igor Kruter and Christopher Regis-Gludd. (2nd to 14th March.) www.goingdutch.us/
According to the English news service http://www.dutchnews.nl/ the northeast of the Netherlands (that's A'dam) has had 55 days of snow for the 2009-2010 winter; and it was the coldest in 14 years. Tell me about it! "In a normal winter, there are an average of 13 days of snow." Hey, 3D is glad it's over. It is, isn't it?
This sounds weird..."Idle Hands welcomes the Knottingham Trend Knitters from the UK, as well as Carla Meijer from The Dutch Knitterrs for an evening of international fiber crafting and fun in Amsterdam. Needles start clicking at 18:30." Ladies---and, who knows, maybe a few men---man your weapons. FREE. https://bit.ly/2Jp6HX6
Tell and American that his country is a modern day empire and he will recoil in shock. Piers Brendon writes an article titled, "Like Rome Before the Fall?" in which he questions if "America's informal empire, controlled diplomatically, commercially and militarily, girdles the globe" is about to collapse. Several years ago 3D read an article that the USofA had military landing rights in 42 countries. It is probably a higher number by now...And that number truly constitutes an empire official or unofficial. http://www.iht.com/ (26th February 2010.)
...Coming Up...Mediamatic BANK's next extravaganza is titled: "The Great Jerry Springer Rodeo." Oh, my, what could THAT be all about? Well, the poster says: "SEX: Violence and Midgets." More next week.
Did you know the the English business magazine, Economist, in their 2009 Worldwide Cost of Living Survey, ranked Amsterdam at 29th place for European cities? Maybe your rent is more reasonable than you think.
WHAT YOU MISSED LAST WEEK:
We've been down this road before...As 3D is wont to say: I do NOT critique artists, I describe their work. On the other hand, I DO criticize museums and galleries that don't do the job. This came to mind at the opening at NIMk (Keizersgracht 264) for "Sonic Acts XIII: The Poetics of Space." The show is on the first floor of the space and each gallery room has a sign like "Space 4." No name (one exception) is listed crediting the artist. No matter, 3D made note of "Space 2" etc., and took along the A5 booklet with details of the work in script. Unfortunately, there is NO mention of "Space 1" or "2," "3," or "4." Who are the players? Your guess is as good as mine. So please excuse the fact that 3D does not credit anyone---with one exception.
The exception is Yoko Seyama with "Light Work #6: In soil," but she is not in any "Space" that is numbered; there was only her name on a wall outside of the small gallery room. Talk about lack of consistency on the part of NIMk. But, I digress...Her work is a light projection that wraps itself around the far corner of a small room and includes its corners. The light imagery is wispy like the strains of cotton candy or with the intricacies of a butterflies' wing. There are haunting sounds to go with the fluid motions of light.
In Space 5, the large back gallery, there is a feature show of light in different forms and dimensions. There is a dramatic effect that is also achieved with light as it is projected panoramically across the floor and against the walls. The sounds are minimal and discreet. Space 4 is more about sounds than light. The sounds resemble the frequency modulations on a bandwidth. There is a spotlight that is pointing down from the ceiling and at first I assumed that the movement of people across the light beams had an affect on the sounds, however after observing several people who waved their hands and arms across the beam and with no aural sensation of a change in sound nor modulation I assumed that there was not a connection.
Space 2 contains what may be an object or an installation. It is a wooden skeleton structure (formed by a series of different size rectangles) that has nine sides and stands about two meters high. There is a center core sort of like the nucleus of an atom. Whatever it is meant to be is what it is. But it is the sounds that are emitted that get your attention. And they are an eerie reminiscence of those you would hear on a warm summer night along a stream or small lake. 3D spotted something tacked to the entrance door and---assuming it was a name tag---checked it out. It read: "Please Don't Touch." Who me? Never!
There was another space but the door was shut and a note said the room was closed during the performance taking place on the ground floor. When 3D finally made his way to the performance it was too late. Until 2nd May. Participants are: HC Gilje, Carlo Bernardini, Ralf Baecker, Jan-Peter E.R. Sonntag, Yoko Syama, Jacob Kirkergaard, Nan Hoover, Steine Vasilka and Brandon LaBelle. But what "space" they are in is anyone's guess. http://www.nimk.nl/, http://www.sonicacts.com/
"foam" (Keizersgracht 609) presents the work of Ari Marcopoulos who left for the shores of New Amsterdam (aka "New York") in 1979 to document, through his photography, the "scene." The scene being skateboarders, graffiti artists, hip-hop performers et al. Sometimes the emphasis is on the action; skateboarders going into orbit as they do flips, dips and whatever. There are lots of b/w photos and even one that at first you perceive it to be b/w only to realize it is a winter scene in color. The subjects range from portraits (as described above) to landscapes of snowed capped mountains; shots of suburbia; nature scenes; the snow covered earth and several domestic scenes. It is a potpourri of subject matter, Some works look like the shots of an gifted amateur while others reflect the hand of a master over his technique. In fact, the comments, of those in attendance, were sometimes as interesting as the work itself. One photographer said, "This is terrible work" and another viewed it as "masterful." Go see for yourself. Until 16th June.
While you are at "foam" (if you hurry) don't miss the Alexander Rodchenko (1891-1956) exhibition of 250 vintage photographs by the master. And he was a master whether he was holding a camera or paint brush or sculpting. He was "a great innovator of 20th century avant-garde art. A sculptor, abstract constructionist, poster and graphic designer. You will see several examples of his layout/photographic work. His photography tended to highlight the monumental aspects of the subject matter. He also created collage compositions using his own photos. The work often reflects also the linear abstraction of the banal objects and he sometimes adds an element of conceptual redundancy. Many are historical as well. But hurry, hurry, hurry...show closes 12th March. http://www.foam.nl/
Lau Heidendael, at Galerie Petit (N.Z. Voorburgwal 270) does the impossible with his oils and watercolors in that his representational style is both vague and detailed. An oxymoron? Perhaps, but that's what it is! And that's good art: an illusion. A canal scene where the boats and a bridge a nearly subliminal to the trees along its bank. There are also landscapes, dunes, the interior of church, a cluttered table as subject matter. (10x10 cms., w.c @ 250 euro; oils from 650-1,800 euro.)
Sharing the space is Joost Speet with his objects. His work is simple but difficult to describe . He uses steel, wood and bronze to create the objects. Sometimes all of those material together in one piece. Some objects resemble a pine cone, an egg or the dome of a Mosque. Then there is the giant chess' pawn that is turned up side down. There are eggs that are "wrapped" in tree bark (one "tree bark" is of wood another of bronze). In two pieces it appears that he has sawed a slice off a tree trunk and then "framed" it in bronze and the bronze sleeve looks on its side looks like tree bark. (Mixed media work of bronze, steel, wood, pigments and digital print @ 400 to 4,800 euro.) Until 3rd April. https://bit.ly/2uFfPSi
Galerie Witteveen (Keizersgracht 538) hangs the work of Rineke Marsman.. As 3D said on last week's list about another painter of portraits, it is a challenge working within the history of this genré to be unique.. The challenge is to present your work both in style and subject matter in a contemporary and/or avant-garde matter. Marsman does it brilliantly! She adds to some pieces an element of "motion photography" which means a slight blurring of the imagery. In other works it is the background which is sometimes abstract/expressionistic or simply monochromatic that creates the tension. The subject matter is almost invariably young girls as the central focus and their big eyes dominate. The portraits themselves have a minimum of color; sometimes only b/w and many shades of gray. This is her fifth show since 2000 at the gallery. Two reds dots and one green dot at opening. (30x40 cms., 770; 60x170 cms., 2,500; 170x150 cms., @ 3,500 euro.) Until 2nd April. https://bit.ly/2NR0zdF
WOW! for "Ysbrant" (aka Ysbrant Van Wyngaarden) show at Galerie Clement (Prinsengracht 483). What is his style? Figurative expressionism? Representational linear abstraction? A combination of the two? Does it really matter? Noooooo! The work explodes from the surface of the canvas. It excites the eye. It triggers emotional sensibilities. Most of these paintings are filled with wondrous colors like you would get by combining the pallet of the Fauve School with the German Expressionists of the 30s. Often there is a whimsical element to accent it all. You may not like what you see, but you will neither be able to dismiss it or get it out of your mind.. Seven red dots at opening. (35x45 cms., @ 3,000 euro; 60x50 cms., @ 4,000 euro; 170x190 cms., @ 9,000 euro.) Until 27th March. https://bit.ly/2J3VcnE
...And it is just around the corner, at SLEWE Gallery (Kerkstraat 105), for Jeroen Henneman exhibition that scores WOW! WOW!! And that says something for someone who continues to do the same thing over and over, but always differently. Last week's List #24 said to expect: "Sculpture work, objects or paintings or any combination of the three..." Surprise. Basically, he is a linear abstractionist and it doesn't matter the material he is working with: metal, paint, or a Stanley knife. The latter is the tool of his trade for this show. He brings together all the elements in his sculpture/object pieces as well as the architectural paintings from his past but he adds a new element by taking a page from Lucio Fontana (1899-1968) in that he cuts the canvas to create the imagery. But where Fontana's efforts resemble an angry expressionist with a knife, Henneman adds musical rhythm and a structural consistency that adds depth and creates additional contrast. On exhibit are many variations of this theme. Most work is monochromatic white. (60x70 cvms., acrylic on linen @ 6,000 euro; 100x120 cms., acrylic on linen @ 10,000 euro; 165x140 cms,., acrylic, aluminum foil on linen @ 15,000 euro.) Until 3rd April. http://www.slewe.nl/
Minimalism at its best is on display at Galerie Gabriel Rolt (Elandsgracht 34) by Jodie Carey with her show, "TRACES." There are six A4 "drawings" created with the use of blood and ash mixed and the pattern is determined by filtering the materials through lace. There are six large "tapestries" on the wall. Well, that is not quite accurate.. Four are 250x110 cms., fragments of chiffon and each with an impression of a design from bone ash. There is a subliminal feel to the imagery. To the left there are two more "pieces" and one 3D missed almost entirely. The imagery is on the wall itself and with one the ground bone has left not much to be seen. 3D only spotted it from an angle.
There is an "installation" (for want of a better word) that comprises 90% or the back gallery. Called "Bloodlust" it measures five by six meters and is made entirely of blood. 3D asked about whose blood, I mean, are there vampires about? It turns out to be the blood of a horse. Of course, the dried blood reflects the light in several hues of its basically color of red. (A4 drawings @ 950 euro; 250x110 cms., wall hangings in chiffon @ 9,00 euro; "Bloodlust" @ 15,000 euro.) Until 3rd April. http://www.gabrielrolt.com/
STORM GALLERY (3e Oosterparkstraat 201) celebrated its first anniversary with a group show of the gallery's nineteen artists. Daniela Larve makes drawings like a comic strip artist on acid. That means to say that they are ALL sort of representational while existing in an hallucinatory world.. The 20 or more pieces are shown as a composition in a large box like frame. They should remain so! The price list on the wall indicated prices by size: small, medium and large. There should be one price for all. The technique is pencil and fine-liner. She also has a figurative object on display made of carton, wood, material and wool. It has elements of the "Scarecrow" from the film, "The Wizard of Oz." It appears to be holding a child. It has motion and is an abstraction in both form and color. 3D asked to meet the artist. She is no acid freak. The woman presented to me was dressed with the style of Chanel and had the same grace of the lady. (Sm. @ 35 euro; Med. @ 90 euro; Lg. @ 135 euro.)...Anneke Hendrikx paints expressionistic flowers, but not in the colors you might expect. In these works they are subdued. (50x50 cms., @ 800 euro; 100x80 cms., @ 1,460 euro)....Tjalf Melle does linear representational abstractions in color reminiscent of Dirk Breed. (50x50 oil, @ 200 euro.)...
Esther te Marvelde paints portraits? Well, sort of. But the backgrounds of the banal subject matter is a linear abstraction or conceptual redundancy and always a major juxtaposition from the image of a young girl with her head turned away from us; or a man in a state of fright? ((60x60 cms., oil @ 600 euro.)...Fransje Versloot paints what you which to see. Is it a linear abstraction? Or is it a seascape with a setting sun? Doesn't matter. Her work projects itself from the canvas and on its own terms. She favors red, black and touches of white sedately but colorfully. Neat trick! (70x70 cms., @ 675 euro.)...GianCarlo Pazzanese paints cartoon like images on a "canvases" that appear to have been the cushions of chairs. Good kitsch. (60x80 cms., @ 695.)
Juliette van de Walle makes gas masks. Well, she doesn't MAKE them but she embellishes on the real thing that she finds at an army surplus store. There are three floor pieces. One looks like a big fluffy sheep wearing a gas mask and the other a bull doing the same. (The price list is a study in contrast. Pieces from 250 to 950 euro for much the same size, about 20x20 cms; then the "sheep" at 60x40x43 cms., at ONLY 225 euro. Go figure.)...Venetian styled glass by Nadjezda Schokker are figurative organic works. That is, there is a sense of motion to the objects whether they have a figurative representationalism or just a vase being a vase. (25 cms., high @ 125 euro). Until ___?___. https://bit.ly/2zTEBDT
WHAT IS HAPPENING THIS WEEK:
Reminder: As always when you see (?) it means that 3D has not verified through his exhausting research whether or not there is an opening. Last week, I sent three or four e-mails to verify an opening. One was unanswered and those that were were wrong. 3D went to find there was NO show. Go figure. The "*" indicates that the time could be incorrect. Call ahead or check the web-site.

Much to do this week and only you can DO it! So, carry on. Note well that this coming Monday is "International Women's Day." There are a few related events taking place so take advantage of them. Hey, guys, that's a good place to check out the females...Ooops, maybe that's sexist to say. Don't know! But you can be sure that 3D---the original Dirty Ol' Man---will be on hand doing what comes naturally...
