Do I want an Old Fashioned? @ Boetzelaer|Nispen, Jan 10 – Feb 14

8 January 2015

Boetzelaer|Nispen is hosting a new group exhibition titled Do I want an Old Fashioned? at their Amsterdam location, running from January 10 to February 14.

Following a theme we have (happily) seen arise of late in the art world, the Emma Siemens-Adolphe-curated show takes the physical as its starting point, questioning the “relationship between viewer, artist and body” and exploring the contradictory definitions surrounding it. The exhibition asks “What if our pupil had a crack in its lens; allowing for a fragmented view of a world in which no singularity prevailed?” and suggests this crack as the fluidity through which true communication can occur.

Participating in the group show is May Hands with a series of sculptural paintings entitled ‘Feather Duster Paintings’ (2014) Sandra Vaka Olsen with a photo series called ‘Sunshield’ (2014), Cory Scozzari with a new body of work titled ‘Crossfire or five years old running behind you at the beach’ (2014) and Yves Scherer with a work that attempts to redirect the male gaze titled ‘Persian Rug’ (2014). There’s also Tore Wallert with a body-size installation called ‘Margot’ (2015), and Thea Govorchin with an erotic painting series called ‘Kirigoe Mima (霧越未麻)’ (2014) and a sculptural element titled ‘Hojōjutsu’ (2015).

Jonas Lund @ Boetzelaer|Nispen, Sep 6 – Oct 11

4 September 2014

The London-born Boetzelaer|Nispen is hosting the first solo show by Jonas Lund, titled Studio Practice and running at their Amsterdam space from September 6 to October 11.

With Studio Practice, the Swedish artist transforms the gallery space into a live art production line, with four assistants working full-time to produce work inspired by Lund’s 300-page book of guidelines.

Once completed, each work is evaluated online by an advisory board of collectors, gallerists, artists and art advisors to determine whether it should be signed by the artist or destroyed, and the entire process is filmed and publicly accessible, making the exhibition like an eerie Big Brother episode of the art world.

Visit the Studio Practice website for details. **
