Exhibition: Watteau at Teylers Museum in Haarlem

Mimi Blogger Team went to the opening of the ‘Watteau’ exhibition at Teylers museum.

Jean-Antoine Watteau’s (1684-1721) work marked the beginning of the Rococo movement. More than 60 paintings and drawings by Watteau and followers can be seen at Teylers Museum. Designs by fashion students at the Rietveld Academy, made with Watteau’s paintings in mind, are situated throughout the museum as well.

Next to the designs ‘Project Rietveld at Teylers’ also includes  sketches of the students and a professional portfolio, photographed by JW Kaldenbach.

Riette Wanders at Francis Boeske Projects
New work by Dutch artist Riette Wanders will be on show at Francis Boeske Projects. You can be at the Opening today if you are in Amsterdam!

In her work Riette Wanders searches for both elusive and contradictory images, images that are difficult to define in regards to the time in which they are made and the intention with which they are made. Wanders works from photographs, music and her own personal experience to realise this imagery within a finished work. A sensitivity to materials and what the materials evince is a fundamental part of the process. Working mostly with charcoal on paper, Wanders’ drawings are structured with raw, energetic yet delicate lines. Wanders’ uses a fixative spray to at once both seal and corrode the original image, altering the composition and giving rise to accidental forms. This process is repeated in numerous layers of charcoal creating a dense, deep velvety blackness. Album covers, posters and videos of bands such as Sonic Youth are embedded in Wanders’ memory and are recalled to play an important role in her work, it is through such album covers that Wanders got to know the work of artists such as Mike Kelly, Christopher Wool and Raymond Pettibon.

Wanders’ work is diverse in subject matter, use of materials and discipline, Abstraction next to figuration, Three dimensional next to Two dimensional, Classical next to contemporary, organic vs inorganic. Through her work, Wanders’ visualizes and connects these apparent differences. Within this context the individual images and the body of work as a whole become more eloquent.
