Annet Gelink Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming edition of Unseen Amsterdam, taking place from September 17 until September 19, 2021.
On the occasion, Annet Gelink Gallery is proud to present a selection of works by Robby Müller, Yael Bartana, Bertien van Manen, Awoiska Van der Molen and Ed van der Elsken.
Coinciding with the latest publication Flora (2021), we are pleased to show a special selection of Polaroids by the Dutch photographer. Flowers, plants, and trees throughout the seasons are the subjects captured by Robby's eye. The immaculate images strike for their vivid colors and their richness of details, allowing particulars to emerge vividly.
Looking at the extensive archive of photojournalists Leni and Herbert Sonnenfeld, Bartana re-staged the original photographs creating a utopian moment that challenges the ethos of the Zionist movement.
Bertien van Manen
Throughout her career, van Manen has documented the daily life of various social groups such as nuns, female migrant workers, and mining communities in the Appalachian Mountains, as well as life in the former Soviet Union and China.
For Unseen 2021 we are pleased to present photographs from respective series Moonshine and Let’s sit down before we go.
Awoiska Van der Molen
Since 2009, van der Molen has taken black and white, abstracted images in nature. Spending long periods of time in solitude in remote landscapes, she slowly uncovers the identity of the place, allowing it to impress upon her its specific emotional and physical qualities.
Ed van der Elsken
Ed van der Elsken's work is highly subjective, portraying striking individuals he encountered on his travels, documenting his own life and that of his surrounding. His approach was confrontational, embracing the bright as well as the darker sides of human life.
