De Amsterdamse kunstenaar Jim Harris schildert sinds jaar en dag in de open lucht. Met een bakfiets of ee n boot trekt hij er dagelijks op uit vanuit hartje Amsterdam op zoek naar s childerkunstige onderwerpen. Dit keer volgde hij de loop van de rivier De A mstel\; zijn daar opgedane ervaringen vormden de aanleiding voor een nieuwe serie schilderijen. Harris raakte met name gefascineerd door het spel dat licht en schaduw met het wateroppervlak spelen en nam dat spel als onderwer p voor zijn huidige serie werken. Ook eenvoudige fenomenen als een paar dob berende boten en een enkele door riet omgeven waterkant waren aanleiding vo or een schilderij. Het gaat hem daarbij niet per se om de weergave van het onderwerp of een specifieke plek\, maar veel meer om het schilderkunstig pr oces en de daardoor ontstane dynamiek. Harris: &ldquo\;De constructie van h et beeld is belangrijker dan een precieze documentatie van de plek. En eige nlijk tref je dit soort onderwerpen overal in Nederland aan.&rdquo\;  \ ;

\n

Voor zijn nieuwe serie werken liet Harris zich inspireren door een tentoonstelling over het werk van Mondriaan die in &rsquo\;95 in het Gemeentearchief van Amsterdam werd gehouden met a ls titel \;Mondriaan langs de Amstel. Veel van de getoonde wer ken werden indertijd door Mondriaan &lsquo\;en plein air&rsquo\; geschilder d\, net zoals Harris nu doet. Harris ziet zijn olieverfschilderijen als een reactie op de omgeving waarin hij zich op dat moment bevindt. Op locatie w erken dwingt hem snelle beslissingen te nemen en te handelen\; binnen een p aar uur kan de lichtinval totaal veranderd zijn. Ook de werken die op het e iland Texel ontstonden\, en die hij nu eveneens toont\, laten zien dat Harr is al schilderend met een goed oog voor het totaalbeeld fraaie impressies v an de werkelijkheid in olieverf weet te vangen. \;

&ndash\ ; Johan van der Keuken\, Ed van der Elsken Between Photo and Film\, 1996.

\n
\n

In Ed van der Elsk en Archives\, Annet Gelink Gallery proudly presents \;Johan and Ed< /em> \;curated by Willem van Zoetendaal. In this exhibition\, Van Zoete ndaal explores the photography of Johan van der Keuken and Ed van der Elske n through a selection of black and white images from the 1950s and the1960s . Van Zoetendaal places the interaction between photographer and subject in the center of attention.

\n

Van Zoetend aal has been working with the oeuvre of Johan van der Keuken for many years and has published several books about the great photographer. Furthermore\ , together with Noshka van der Lely\, he is the representative of the Johan van der Keuken Archive. For our current exhibition Van Zoetendaal has sele cted works by the two contemporaries\, dated before 1965.

\n

The images on display by Van der Elsken (1925-1991) ha ve never been published before. They were taken in Paris and Amsterdam duri ng the early period of his career and share the same curiosity and love for his contemporaries as the rest of his body of work. Van der Elsken often p ortrays large groups of friends or families\, homeless people with all thei r belongings and tramps sleeping rough out on the streets. What makes these different is that they depict exceptional scenes\, such as portraits of fa mous women and animals. The manner in which he photographs these figures sh ows the artist&rsquo\;s empathy towards any and all of his models.

\n

The same intimacy can be detected in the sele cted photographs by Van der Keuken (1938- 2001)\, dating from before 1965 a nd depicting Paris\, Amsterdam\, Sommiè\;res and Sardinia. They bear a youthful timidity\, which has much to do with the photographer&rsquo\;s y oung age at the time. Van der Keuken keeps a slight distance from the peopl e he is photographing. He is an observer of the world and its inhabitants w ho is fascinated by the momentary character of life.

\n

Both artists address their &lsquo\;love&rsquo\; for the out sider in their images. Their perception of the world around them is not jus t a sensory perception\, but a much deeper philosophical\, emotional or som etimes political connection with others and the things around them. These p hotos are full of emotion and drama\, full of lust for life. The photograph s on show capture the ultimate link between photographer and the world. In their portraits\, Van der Elsken and Van der Keuken always sought direct co ntact with their subjects. That contact was essential: empathy is a key ele ment in both artists&rsquo\; work. In the case of Van der Elsken it comes t hrough his photographs while Van der Keuken translates his empathy for his models more clearly through his films\, in which he talks\, interviews and slowly zooms in on one person and his or her facial expressions.

\n

The shared professional interest of these two f amous Dutch photographers can be partly traced back to their friendship and time spent together in Amsterdam. Van der Keuken talked about Van der Elsk en as his greatest early inspiration and mentor\, an example in life- and w ork-style. Van der Elsken&rsquo\;s approach to life and work fascinated him as a young artist and a teenager.

\n

Th e climax of the show is two photographs placed next to each other\, one dep icting Van der Elsken and the other Van der Keuken with his friends. The tw o photographers took these pictures of each other in the same room in Amste rdam\, in or around 1955 just before their work became famous and widely ac knowledged.

\n

Willem van Zoeten daal \;(The Hague\, 1950) is a graphic designer who has been p roducing photography books since the early nineties. In 1994 he started pub lishing his own books\, first under the name Basalt and then under the name Van Zoetendaal Publishers. During the same period Van Zoetendaal also cura ted photography exhibitions in the Netherlands\, France\, Japan and Korea. Additionally\, Van Zoetendaal has been active as a gallery owner for contem porary photography since 2000.

\n

Johan van der Keuken \;(1938-2001) was a Dutch documentary f ilmmaker\, author\, and photographer. In a career that spanned 42 years\, V an der Keuken produced 55 documentary films\, six of which won eight awards . He also wrote nine books on photography and film\, his field of interest. For all his efforts\, he received seven awards for his life&rsquo\;s work\ , and another for his photography.

Galerie Ron Mandos p roudly presents new works by Dutch painter and filmmaker Jacco Olivier (197 2). \;
\n
 \;
\n
Jacco Olivier has built a name for his own special brand of painterly video art. Incorporating dots\, dashes and fleeting streaks of paint\, he uses the medium of video to imbue his &lsquo \;canvasses&rsquo\; with an intricate and heightened sense of movement crea ting colourful\, textured and malleable worlds that suck the viewer in.\n

Up until very recently the paintings s canned to produce these video works have never been shown. But especially f or this show with Galerie Ron Mandos\, Olivier will premiere large format a utonomous paintings. This follows on from Olivier&rsquo\;s recent exhibitio n at Galerie der Stadt Backnang in Germany where for the first time he pres ented a series of small painted panels\, which were used in his video makin g process. \;

\n

Central to the exhi bition will be 3 never before shown video works: one monumental six-meter b road projection flanked by 2 smaller pieces. These works continue Olivier&r squo\;s move away from narratively structured works such as &lsquo\;Return& rsquo\; (2007) and &lsquo\;Run&rsquo\; (2008) and motif-based pieces such a s &lsquo\;Bath&rsquo\; and &lsquo\;Stumble&rsquo\; (both 2009) towards ever increasing abstraction.

\n

In these new pieces dabs of paint of varying form and texture hang in a gently swaying equilibrium. These painterly worlds seem to portray an illusive subconsciou s: organic undulating shapes we may see when falling asleep\, or denser mor e geometric shapes that lurch one way and then another. These different com posed scenes of painted forms follow one another in subtly fluid transition s: a twenty minute meditative journey.

\n

Jacco Olivier lives and works in Amsterdam having studied at the Rijk sacademie from 1997-1998. He participated in the 2005 Prague Biennale and g roup exhibitions at the Istanbul Modern\; MCA Denver and Centre pour l&rsqu o\;image Contemporaine Saint-Gervais in Geneva. Olivier was included in the 8th SITE Santa Fe Biennial: The Dissolve\, curated by Daniel Belasco and S arah Lewis in 2011. He had solo shows in The Hague Gemeentemuseum (GEM) in 2014 and \;Galerie der Stadt Backnang in 2015.His wor k is also included in the Venice Biennial 2015\, Azerbaijan Pavilion.< /p>\n

 \;
\n
This is his third show with Galerie Ron Mandos. He also works with Victoria Miro\, London and Marianne Boesky\, \;New York.

Galerie Ron Mandos h as the pleasure to announce \;STREET CALLED STRAIGHT\, the fir st solo exhibition of Sebastiaan Bremer (Amsterdam\, 1970) with the gallery . On the opening Bremer&rsquo\;s monograph \; &lsquo\;To Joy&rsquo\;\, the first detailed analysis o f his work\, will be launched. From \;5 pm \;the artist will be sig ning copies of the book.
\n
 \;
\n
Sebastiaan Bremer spent part of his youth in a house across the canal from where Galerie Ron Mandos is now situated. Having left for New York over 20 years ago\, he now retur ns to his roots with his first solo exhibition in the Netherlands: A STREET CALLED STRAIGHT.
\n
 \;
\n
Upon leaving his homeland one item the a rtist took with him was a Dutch photography book entitled &lsquo\;Bloemen&r squo\;. This publication was made during the years of German occupation and constitutes an expression of national pride through 3 things: flower culti vation\, graphic design and printing. Colourful yet wistful\, in some way p erhaps portraying the oppression of this period\, Bremer has for a long tim e wanted to incorporate these images in his work. Now upon his return\, the time is right.
\n
 \;
\nIn this body of work also entitled &lsquo\ ;Bloemen&rsquo\;\, Bremer makes small and considered interventions in the o riginal images. Small dots of carefully matched coloured acrylic are applie d creating an overall balanced composition. The works obtain a galactic ass ociation\, with the dots of paint resembling gravitational lenses in space\ , referring to the phenomenon of seeing spatial matter in different moments of time in one view.
\n
 \;\n
Next to this series of works\, Breme r will exhibit two larger drawings entitled &lsquo\;Waterfall&rsquo\; and & lsquo\;The Road to Damascus&rsquo\;. These works were made drawing and scra tching onto exposed and therefore black\, photographic paper. Only very sub tle leaks of light are perceptible in the paper used.
\n
 \;
\n
\n
In another exhibited series entitled &lsquo\;Nature Morte\, Nu et Tete&r squo\;\, Bremer uses photographs taken in his studio that resemble Dutch go lden age still-lifes. These photographs are combined with drawn pictoral mo tifs (a torso by Brassai\, a study for a skull by Picasso and a vase by Mat isse)\, which are cut into and intersect each other in dynamic ways.
\ n

 \;

\n
The title \;STREET CALLED STRAIGHT \;refers to the notion of epiphany. It references directly the story of Saul who is confron ted by god on the road to Damascus on his way to persecute the Christians. Saul subsequently converts to Christianity and becomes the apostle Paul.STREET CALLED STRAIGHT \;is also Bremer&rsquo\;s own insight gain ed over the years in his practice. Upon his return to Amsterdam\, a loop is closed and a new perspective achieved.
\n
 \;
\n
Breme r&rsquo\;s work is part of several important collections worldwide\, includ ing the Victoria &\; Albert Museum\, London\; Museum of Modern Art\, New York\; Los Angeles County Museum of Art\; The Zabludowicz Trust\, London\; The AKZO Nobel collection\, The Netherlands and more. Sebastiaan Bremer&rs quo\;s artwork has been exhibited at the Tate Modern\, London\; the Brookly n Museum of Art\; The Aldrich Museum\, Connecticut\; MoMA PS1\, New York\; and at Het Gemeentemuseum\, The Hague. \;
