We are proud to present the work by Pauline Curnier Jardin, Klaas Kloosterboer, Mauricio Limón de León and Kubilay Mert Ural on our booth 34 at Art Rotterdam 2020.
Human impulses, social conventions and desires: Mauricio Limón de León’s work underlines the tension between these concepts. His work can be seen both at the booth and at The Performance Show, a new initiative from Art Rotterdam. His performance is a satire on social hierarchies and a parody of the excesses of the contemporary art world, its pretensions and the political agendas to which it is subject. The group of masks that is used for the performance is also on show at the booth.
Kubilay Mert Ural has a way of capturing otherworldly images. His videos, installations and paintings function like passages, inviting the viewer to traverse his/our primordial thoughts. The global reality as we know it today is one of confusion and chaos, indistinguishable from a bad dream. Ural is captivated by such fascinations, as well as consoled by these hypnagogic visions. At Art Rotterdam a selection of new paintings is on show.
"And now, give me my money..." is a work of Pauline Curnier Jardin wherein the great eccentric female artist resurrects. This slap puppet is, for Curnier Jardin, the personification of Carol Rama, but it could also be Leonora Carrington or Claude Cahun, or.... Beside the booth presentation, Curnier Jardin is selected for the section Projection at the fair, with her price-winning film Qu’un Sang Impur, inspired by Genet’s sole realized film Un Chant d’Amour (1950).
Klaas Kloosterboer is a conceptual painter whose art takes variable forms. In his practice he pursues a kind of ‘expanded painting’. He makes pieces following instructions that warrant a swift and objective execution, but he designs his exhibitions as spatial environments that give a feel of improvisation or experimentation. For Art Rotterdam he will make a few brand-new works.
Please note: The Performance Show is at Atelier Van Lieshout, Keileweg 12-18, from 7-9 February 2020.
