> DESCRIPTION

 A Cock of the Frock is a South American cotingid birds. The males are  magnificent birds because of their bright orange and red colors and  there very prominent fan-shaped crests which they use for a complex  court behavior. Performing an impressive lek display. This is used by  male animals for competitive mating ceremonies. 

The bird will use it’s fan and colors to lure the female in and court  them. This behavior shows a very dominant behavior In A Cock in a Frock on a Rock (a famous phrase from the movie The  Adventures of Pricilla Queen of the Dessert), Juliette Jongma presents a  group exhibition with 4 artists; Juliaan Andeweg, Alicja Bielawska, Tim  Braden and Edwin Deen. All dominantly using color as a common  convention.

Juliaan Andeweg
Studied at the Koninklijke Academie Den Haag (Royal Academy The Hague),  on their website he states ‘I declare the painterly brush stroke to be  banned from the atelier by presenting these new, smooth and glistening  monochromes’. At the gallery Juliaan Andeweg (1986, NL) shows monochrome  paintings on a relief. The painting become sculptures or objects in a  way, where some of them are emancipated from the wall.

Alicja Bielawska
Alicja Bielawska (1980, PL) graduated in 2009 from the Gerrit Rietveld  Academy in Amsterdam. Bielawska shows a fragile lining through space.  The objects defines itself in its own setting and becomes part of the  space it is exhibited in. I this way the sculpture tells it’s own story  and changes with moving.

Tim Braden
 Known as a colorful painter, here shown his film ‘Documentary, 2006’  where Tim Braden (1975, UK) paints a fence in Island.  Tim Braden is mostly known for his colorful painting. His work reflects  the idea of the collective unconsciousness. We have something all in  common. In his film ‘Documentary, 2006’ he reflects on color, signs,  buildings, different shapes and sizes and Land Art. Literally painting a  colored line through nature, Braden tries to recreate a memory of a land  Art Piece that he has ones seen. 

Edwin Deen
‘Edwin Deen is an artist of comic relief in daily life’. The  installations, projects or experiments by Edwin Deen (1980, NL) are  always an ongoing progress. A work is never just the work you see but  displayed almost in a cocky way. It reveals a web of associations in  shape, color, function and meaning. Deen often uses existing objects and  experiments with their shapes, colors and functions. These experiments  are most of the time the key factor within the work, the association it  creates.
