Hoe manifesteerde zich de virtuoze manier van schilderen in de moderne tijd? Welke kunstenaars slaagden er in om langs deze weg verdere vernieuwing dan wel verdieping te vinden? Leeft virtuositeit nog in de hedendaagse schilderkunst? Deze vragen vormen het uitgangspunt voor de omvangrijke tentoonstelling Virtuoos! Israels tot Armando in het Frans Hals Museum, locatie Hal, die loopt van 29 juni tot en met 3 november. De focus ligt daarbij op Nederlandse schilders voor wie de afgelopen honderd jaar de vrije, uitdrukkingsvolle en rake toets wezenlijk was

Dürst Britt & Mayhew is delighted to present Dutch artist Wieske Wester’s first exhibition at the gallery.

A cabbage, a bunch of bananas or a whiskey glass. The strength that lies in simple and everyday objects is often the starting point for Wieske Wester’s work. These are images without masks that appeal by their lack of visual violence and spectacle, but are nevertheless characterized by a certain degree of ambiguity. Wester’s paintings and drawings depict the human desire for identity, yet are peppered with references to aggression and sexuality. Wrestlers, genitals and figures that hover between beast and man regularly pass in review. For Wester the physical act of painting and drawing is the most direct way to capture the fluidity and forcefulness of the human spirit.

Immediately after obtaining her Bachelor’s degree from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, Wieske Wester was selected for a two-year working period at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. In 2008 she was nominated for the Buning Brongers Prizes in Amsterdam and for the Focus Abengoa Painting Prize in Seville, Spain. In 2014 she enrolled at the HISK in Ghent to place herself into a new critical context and to further develop her chosen themes and imagery. Wieske Wester lives and works in Ghent and The Hague.

The French term ‘un certain regard’ can actually and ironically enough be described as a look or glance that is hard to describe. In its inevitable erotic connotation it can both be a look of longing, love or lust, as well as of disapproval or disgust. It therefore continually hovers between gazing and staring. While gazing can very well objectify a body, only staring is considered rude as it is directed at difference, deviation and otherness. The borders however can be hard to determine and are bound to very personal predilections or fears.

The works in this exhibition all to different degrees objectify the body and test the boundaries between gazing and staring. Various sexual personae and erotic references may make audiences feel both titillated as well as voyeuristic. The works on display manifest a sensitive, but emancipatory form of eroticism. Therefore, from the exhibiting artists’ position ‘un certain regard’ is not a vague concept, but translates as a convinced, assertive and genuine view on contemporary sensuality.

17 mei t/m 2 juni 2013 

Naar idee van beeldend kunstenaar Pim Voorneman.

De titel van de tentoonstelling is gebaseerd op de laatste opera van de Duitse componist Richard Strauss.In de opera staat de vraag centraal wat belangrijker is in de kunsten: het woord of de muziek. Het drama wordt verbeeld door de verliefdheid van de hoofdpersoon op twee personen, een dichter en een componist. Na twee uur meeslepende muziek blijft de vraag in het gesammtkunstwerk onbeantwoord. Het antwoord ligt in de verbeelding van de luisteraar. Het beeld lijkt bij de opera van Strauss secondair te zijn.

In de tentoonstelling Capriccio wordt het beeld gekoppeld aan de muziekkeuze van de kunstenaar en wordt de toeschouwer bloot gesteld aan de vraag: beeld of muziek?
De tentoonstelling wordt afgesloten met muziek. Michael van Hoogenhuyze zal voorafgaand aan deze muzieksalon het woord voeren.

De tentoonstelling ´Capriccio´ van Pim Voorneman bij JCA DE KOK was een groot succes. Pim Voorneman heeft tijdens de afsluiting van deze bijzondere tentoonstelling de gelijknamige CD ´Capriccio´ gelanceerd met daarop de muziekkeuze van de kunstenaars die gedurende de tentoonstelling en de muzieksalon (17 mei t/m 2 juni 2013) te horen was. De CD bevat een bijbehorend boekje met afbeeldingen van de tentoongestelde kunstwerken. Zo kunt U de beelden en de muziek nogmaals bekijken en beluisteren.
