Carbon Chroma

Tom Kraanen & Denitsa Todorova  Josilda da Conceição proudly presents Carbon Chroma, a duo-exhibition bringing together works of Tom Kraanen and Denitsa Todorova. Although very distinct in visual language, presented artists share a strong sensibility of rendering the subconscious speculations. Having this grasp on non-linear recountal in pictorial representation, both Kraanen and Todorova, gesturally play with rhythmic slant of abstraction, that at intervals spirals out of conventional harmony. In the exhibition achromatic works of Todorova, with bare marks left by the erasure of graphite powder on paper, dialogues with opulent coloristic reverie of Kraanen, echoing the tension of reflecting, the paralleled push and pull between the light and the shadow, conscious and subconscious, immediate and mnemonic, vernacular and cosmic.

Popel Coumou | popel

TORCH proudly presents the seventh solo exhibition by Popel Coumou. Over the past 15 years, Popel's body of work has followed a steady trajectory, where every next step makes sense in her development yet surprises everyone who follows her. Her latest works take different forms, with photographs in small editions existing next to unique collages, with or without the addition of plexiglass or natural foam. With every new addition to her artistic universe, Popel widens her scope and further plays with the viewer's perception. How much spatiality can be suggested using only the simplest resources, materials and tools?Popel has mostly let go of the concept of presenting the photograph as the end product, but photography is still part of every single artwork. The layers out of which she builds her latest interiors are made up of images of skies. These cause natural colour gradients and create an illusion of depth, while the texture in the paper itself is clearly visible. With the collages made up of these sheets of paper, she dissects the very idea that an image should represent reality. The honesty in her deliberately imperfect artworks allows the viewer to see beyond their inherent nature and appreciate where the forms take you. To further diffuse the borders between reality and fiction, figuration and abstraction, Popel's relief works break through the flat surface and penetrate the third dimension.About the ArtistPopel Coumou (1978) is a Dutch photography-based artist living and working in Amsterdam. She is represented by TORCH Gallery in Amsterdam. Since she graduated from the Rietveld Academy in 2004, she has been exhibiting her work worldwide.

Adriano Amaral – PROLE

In PROLE, his first major solo exhibition since joining the gallery, Adriano Amaral shows new work in a room filling installation. Amaral's work involves an examination of the nature of things in the world; the materiality and substance of what is around us as well as its value and transforming power over time. His practice starts from an intuitive and plural approach, and results in complex immersive installations that are always sensitive to the context in which they are inserted.

Pebbles – reflecting to navigate 

Looking back at the many artistic gems exhibited in the 35 years since AKINCI was founded, there are several paths to explore. Different paths have led us to different destinations. Iconic works demonstrate the gallery's focus on the experimental nature of the moving image, display the powerful character of textile and show a new approach to photography. In this exhibition, we draw on the gallery's private collection, works recently presented at institutional exhibitions, as well as pieces that have gone unnoticed despite their importance. The exhibition reflects on some paths to see where they have taken us and what lies ahead.

Daniela Schwabe | Sad Songs

In the series SAD SONGS, the way music and photography shape our memories comes together. The paintings reveal the fragments that actually make up our collective memory. On the small panels, each measuring ten by ten centimeters, black and white images are displayed; waving mermaids, a wiped-away tear, a cat on a sink, and a clown after his performance in the dressing room. Daniela Schwabe carefully combines selected fragments that together tell a story that is simultaneously personal and universal, with music as the common denominator.

Me as a Mountain  | Evi Vingerling

“My toes were in the fine white foam of the shoreline, heavy like old silk lace.I noticed that the wet sand by my feet was a rusty red while in the top of the sky above me there was the softest tint of aqua. In the middle of the waves there was deep turquoise sparkling with the bright reflections of the sun, as well as bands of translucent green gold and lavender that lit up in turn. The surf sparkled and splashed brightly. At the same time everything seemed magenta, and the whole surface of the water vibrated with light as if the color spectrum showed some extra hues here. I wanted badly to go into it and so I did.”

matter is matter that doesn’t matter | Meng-Hsuan Chin, Lisette de Greeuw & Jo Wu

“matter is matter that doesn’t matter” features the work of artists Meng-Hsuan Chin, Lisette de Greeuw, and Jo Wu. With a highly sensitive awareness of the meaning language is able to unfold in daily life, each artist adopts their unique thread to weave meaning into the matter, a material developed from but not limited to linguistic contexts. Chin researches the correlation between narratives and bodily movement. Her process of painting is a mixture of meaning digested within the concern for movement, out of which derives narrative and emotion. For de Greeuw, the conceptual transformation of language takes place in a self-dictated representational system based on embroidery patterns. Working in an organic and concentrated manner, she reveals the tension and harmony lying underneath the surface of truth and meaning by creating repetition and accepting accidents. Wu continues to write poetry alongside her painting practice in search of an understanding of rhythm. She then applies her rhythmical reasoning to genres such as literary works, contemporary art writings, and religious texts to define concepts like nature, time, and death. To the three artists, reality is revealed and taken note of when they find meaning and matter reside close to each other. In other words, things are perhaps only “meaningful” and “matterful” when both literal thoughts and material matters are fully present at the same time together.
