(Image: © Viviane Sassen) Viviane Sassen (b. 1972, Amsterdam) Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen works along the thin line separating art and commerce. She is dually known for her innovative fashion work in French Vogue, Purple, and POP and for her surrealist African portraiture. Sassen uses bold, graphic shadows, vivid color and place to create images full of symbols and ambiguity. She obscures faces in deep shadows or turns them away and by doing so, she withholds essential elements which allow th... [more]

Places such as corridors, elevators, staircases and balconies interest Smilde as spaces that exist to be in between. This interest also branches out into the possibility of how a given space might be in between states of construction and deconstruction. Using his day to da... [more]

Posted 10/26/11

Paul Buchanan (1970, Glasgow, UK) together with Laura Pardo (1982, Bogota, CO) forms The Souvenir Collective.

The life of these products however doesn’t stop here – the Souvenir Collective is also ke... [more]

(Image: Katrin Korfmann, Gravitation (2 hrs), Amsterdam, 2010; © Art Affairs Gallery) Katrin Korfmann (b. 1971, Berlin, Germany) Katrin Korfmann places a lot of value on the visual composition and the creation of a fictional world, comprised of real pictures of places and people, pregnant with meaning. She choreographs her protagonists as if they were scattered across an expansive model train set. Most of the time, her pictures are presented in large scale prints and in illuminated boxe... [more]

In this case, painting as a historically charged traditional artistic system of representation is the object of inquiry. The first room of the exhibition -used as a white cube room- holds a couple of works (ripped canvases showing the wood... [more]

He is a true creator of new atmospheres. His famous images of a hallucinatory world in which often children take a pose, are beyond the creation of computerized photographs. By referring to immemorial notions of virtue and innocence, his works are interesting from both an art-historical and... [more]
