"Splendid Isolation" (Schitterende Afzondering) .

Exhibition, until Saturday Dec. 8th 2012

Splendid Isolation is an exhibition on lines and maps with a special focus on conceptual and gestural approaches. I presume you will like it. The exhibition shows how primary steps in an artistic practice are about idiosyncratic perception. Splendid Isolation is an exhibition that offers a range of visually enticing works on paper which unite artists who disengage fragments and representations of culture. In choosing surprising points of view and rules of transformation the artists invite to a renewed way of seeing.The term isolation is here is meant as a means to eliminate noise and provide clarity. "This is is my perspective, and topic. Here it is." Similar to the way Rudi Fuchs typified Sol Lewitt's Wall Drawing #1084, namely as an art that is clear, laconic, and rich in variation. (De Groene Amsterdammer, 15 Nov. 2012, p. 49)

Until Saterday December 8. Wednesday - Saturday 12.00 - 5.00 pm ARTISTS included are Martin Brandsma, Annesas Appel, Kasper Andreasen, Richard Long, Anett Frontzek, Marlies Appel and Alicja Werbachowska. There is also a selection of artists' books on show.

New Book by Ton Martens

Book: The Paper Monument of The Wall of Nagata-ku, Kobe, Japan by Ton Martens

"During my first working journey to Kobe in 1995 I met the japanese artist Taiji Mihara by Yasuko Nakanishi of Gallery Mssohkan. They showed me 'The Wall' which was saved after the Great Hanshin Earthquake, like it was saved after the bombing of Kobe in 1945 by the Americans. Mr Mihara wanted to keep this wall as . . . The Non-human Witness of the Quake. . . But the municipality of Kobe decided to build houses on this spot. I suggested to make a 'paper monument' of the wall. By rubbing the complete wall onto paper. Unfortunately, in 1995, there was no time left anymore. But I promised that I would come back later. It took me one and a half year to find enough subsidies and sponsors in Holland. In Japan Yasuko and Michiru Nakanish found sponsors by 'The One-sheet-campaign'. From February 19 till March 11 1997 I worked on this project with help of so many." Ton Martens
This book shows all the 76 sheets [size 217 x 97 cm] and some collages, in an edition of 24 copies.
