Galerie Fontana is happy to invite you to the second solo exhibition by Max Kraanen. Welcome to Day One of Happiness, where the sun is shining and the sea is blue.
For his latest project Max Kraanen explores the multifaceted idea of happiness. He is intrigued by the inexplicable concepts and evasive nature of happiness.
He used his intuitive connection with the ocean as a starting point to investigate why we feel the urge to make the pursuit of happiness a principle goal in our lives. His ambivalent relationship with happiness has resulted in an installation of 1000 Polaroids . On first sight the images form a homogeneous mass, on closer inspection they are all unique.
Max Kraanen considers Welcome to Day One of Happiness to be a living organism that will evolve over time and eventually perish. The shapes of the installation are obtained by the interaction with the public and therefore it leads its own life. You can purchase one or more of these Polaroids for your own collection and take home with you immediately.
Max Kraanen and the Fontana team would like to welcome you Saturday 23 February at Galerie Fontana, Lauriergracht 11, Amsterdam, at 16.00 h.
The exhibition will be shown until Saturday 30 March 2019.
