Ornamental Slapstick | Koen Taselaar

andriesse~eyck gallery opens the cultural season with Koen Taselaar’s solo exhibition Ornamental Slapstick, featuring new works in ceramics, textiles and on paper. Ornamental Slapstickwill be the artist’s first exhibition at the gallery. In the world of Koen Taselaar (Rotterdam, 1986), things are always just that little bit different. Take, for instance, the colourful, jacquard-woven tapestry Thalossophobia No More, in which the central motif is the mythical seven-headed dragon. According to legend, the only thing the evil monster fears is water. In Taselaar’s depiction, however, the dragon has mastered its dread of deep waters, and the age-old myth takes a new twist.

Cross Currents | Terry Rodgers

TORCH Gallery is pleased to present 'Cross Currents', an exhibition that showcases the wide scope of artworks created by Terry Rodgers. For over forty years, Terry has been building a unique artistic universe. He addresses the tensions and confusions endemic to today's society. His paintings are known for their rich decorations and sensual nudity, but these are but veneer, covering a raw, existential emotional state. The exhibition accompanies the new publication 'The Works – 1962 to 2023', to be launched during the opening on 9 September.

Artist talk with Sam Samiee

No Man’s Art Gallery will welcome Sam Samiee for an artist talk pertaining to his first solo exhibition When Hell Breaks Loose I’ll Tell You Your Legs Were Always On My Mind, moderated by Nathanja van Dijk (Head of Museum Affairs Textile Museum and former director of Kunsthal Rotterdam).Sam Samiee (b. 1988, IR) is a painter, essayist, and psychoanalyst in training based in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Tehran. He finished the Rijksakademie residency in 2015 and ArtEZ University of Arts and Design in 2013, where he was a lecturer of painting until 2020. Samiee synthesises his heavy research on art history, Persian poetry, and psychoanalytic theories into a studio practice that employs painting in multiple registers. The characteristic of his installations as extended paintings is the break from the tradition of flat painting and a return to the original question of how artists can represent the three-dimensional world in the space of painting as a metaphor for a set of ideas. He employs a range of painterly attitudes from oil paintings to iPad paintings, figuration, abstraction, the break of the rectangular frame and usage of text among other methods. Recently Samiee’s work focuses on a period of painting that parted ways from avant-garde, with the emphasis on decorative modes of work, of artists such as Matisse and Bonnard.

Matthew Day Jackson: Forest Through the Trees

GRIMM is pleased to present Forest Through the Trees, by Matthew Day Jackson. Through referencing the canon of art history, many of Jackson's works examine the projection of human desires onto nature. In his most recent series, Jackson explores the history of landscape painting and its associated political and social functions. The exhibition’s title alludes to the paradox of our present moment in which our perspective of the world, our surroundings and ourselves is limited rather than expanded by our engagement with technology. The prolific photographic record we are generating is a delimited reality which illustrates what we can (and cannot) tolerate as real. This constructed picture becomes a funhouse mirror, distorting the view of ourselves and our context.

Got So Much To Tell You | Sanne Maloe Slecht

We are proud to present Got So Much To Tell You, the second solo exhibition opening at Galerie Bart featuring works by Sanne Maloe Slecht (1987, NL). While her first solo exhibition in 2021, Play Doh’s Cave, presented both sculptural work and paintings, the focus is now entirely on her practice of painting. Although her distinctive style, an effortless merging of the figurative and abstract, can still be recognised, Sanne Maloe is clearly forging a new path for herself.

The feelings the butterflies gave me | Esmay Groot Koerkamp

Galerie Bart proudly presents “The feelings the butterflies gave me”, a storytelling garden exhibition by Esmay Groot Koerkamp (1993, NL). Ceramic objects and a hand-made booklet take visitors on a journey in which they discover the complexity of human relationships. Esmay’s visual language is filled with a strong narrative and humorous details, while her words are carefully chosen to share her thoughts without being overbearing or projecting her personal feelings. By combining two artistic approaches - image and language - she disarms visitors and strikes an emotional chord.
