Dutch Fotomuseum, Rotterdam

Katrien De Blauwer

From November 16th to February 9th 2020

The Nederlands Fotomuseum presents Attack, the first exhibition by Belgian artist Katrien De Blauwer in the Netherlands. De Blauwer has been working for twenty years on a voluminous and powerful work of photo montage, with which she was released only a few years ago. Attack is a reference to the artist’s method. She intuitively cuts images from old international magazines that she then combines out of emotion. New images appear. Women (parts of) women are almost always shown on the cuts. De Blauwer’s work thus responds to the image of Western women as published in magazines from the 1920-1960 period. Attack presents a selection of his work and can be seen at the Nederlands Fotomuseum from 16 November 2019 to 9 February 2020.

Paulien Oltheten / Impossible Journeys in The Netherlands, Russia and Persia, now and then

The Museum of Moscow, Russia

Paulien Oltheten

From November 11th to December 22th 2019

Impossible Journeys (…) intends to offer new perspectives on art, travel and participation and investigates the challenges and possibilities of changing historical and cultural perspectives. Curator Irina Leifer has been inspired by the book ‘Three exceptional and very catastrophic journeys’ (Amsterdam 1676) by the Dutch sailmaker Jan Janz Struys. It is a report of his travel experiences in the East and includes also colourful and expressive descriptions of the obstacles, ways of living, habits and appearances of the people Struys met. The participating artists on their turn, scrutinize contemporary cultural fault lines and limitations they encountered themselves during their journeys through the same countries.

Polaroids et dessins

Le Salon H, Paris

Corinne Mercadier

From Novembre 5th to December 20th, 2019

Salon H features unique works by Corinne Mercadier, Polaroids SX70 originals made between 1987 and 2002, and drawings on paper in ink and coloured pencil from 2008 to 2014. Corinne Mercadier has always drawn, and moving on to photography she continued on the one hand to build her series from 2005 onwards in the form of workbooks, and on the other hand by dreaming of images with pencil in hand and it is these drawings, from the Black Screen Drawings series, that accompany the Polaroids at the H Salon. Corinne Mercadier mainly exhibited large format prints made from Polaroids SX70. However, her working method led her to make a number of similar Polaroids during the same shooting.

The Polaroids exposed are from two series: Glasstypes and One time and no more.

Noémie Goudal / Observatorium

Noémie Goudal / Observatorium

Kunstverein Hildesheim, Germany

Noémie Goudal

From October 24th to January 5th 2020

The observatory is an idea that has become a stone, an architecture of curiosity, an intrinsic desire to know. Noémie Goudal works in categories of space and time; on the horizon of science, art history and spirituality. She negotiates how worldviews and imaginary worlds have changed in the search for the correct perspective, truth and meaning over the centuries. His work can be understood as a study of photographic images, their ability to imagery and the potential for disappointment. But he does not exhaust himself in the fragile aesthetics of conceptual reflections in the media, but rather leads his observers into the pictorial cosmos of a postmodern and broken magical realism.

Museum Jan Cunen, Oss, Netherlands

Katinka Lampe

From october 06th to january 26th 2020

Le projet porte le nom d’un numéro Prince. Van der Linden: “Cela fait référence à la signature des artistes et à l’esprit du temps, au moment où ils fabriquent le masque.” Les masques sont reliés par la forme, mais chacun a sa propre signature et son apparence. Katinka Lampe a maculé la forme des yeux et du nez jusqu’à ce qu’un fond en pente apparaisse sur laquelle elle a appliqué un visage peint avec un masque. Lisa Couwenbergh a traité le masque de base avec de la mousse PUR afin de créer une forme simplifiée, qu’elle a fournie avec un «tapis d’herbe». Marc Mulders a fait une variante blonde et une variante sombre, des contreparties telles que le jour et la nuit, tandis que Michiel van Nieuwkerk a utilisé de la terre.

Edouard Manet gallery, Gennevilliers

Laura Henno

From October 3th to December 14th 2019

The title of the exhibition resonates like a distant echo to history, to the history of representation, to the history of identities, to the multiplication of gazes.

To give meaning to an exhibition is to try to draw lines, to weave links to form a movement, a style, a genre, a trend. Try to create a delimitation to understand the meaning of creating meaning. A delimitation, a boundary to frame, to synthesize presentiments, intuitions, ideas.

From September 14th to January 5th 2020

“To the lark’s song
In the morning with my faithful wheelbarrow”

The wind and the birds encourage me to pay tribute to the Horse Factor who, carried by his dream, has built his ideal Palace for 33 years. His meticulous observation of nature has given him the ability to transport us to other universes, dreamlike spaces, utopian spaces.
