Fetish + intimacy through the queer lens: A.K. Burns + Katherine Hubbard’s Untitled (Shaving performance 2010) screened at Galerie Fons Welters, Nov 7 – 11

6 November 2017

A.K. Burns and Katherine Hubbard present film screening Untitled (Shaving performance 2010) at Amsterdam’s Galerie Fons Welters opening November 7 to 11.

The film is a document of a private performance where Hubbard shaves the lower half of Burns’s body in a sensual act that unpicks beauty and fetish and looks at “how desire, intimacy and fetish operate for queer woman through a re-staging of images found at the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco of a gay mens fetish dungeon in the 1970’s.”

The event is part of a week-long sequence of solo shows by emerging video artists, presented one at a time which also included Cheng Ran’s In Course of the Miraculous and Halil Altindere’s Space Refugee.

Constellation + re-arrangement in Saskia Noor van Imhoff’s #+28.00¹, Apr 21-Jun 17

20 April 2017

Saskia Noor van Imhoff is presenting solo exhibition #+28.00¹ at Amsterdam’s Galerie Fons Welters, opening April 21 and running to June 17. 

Imhoff’s show can be viewed as another iteration; where previous work and architectures of thought are re-used and re-formulated through layered installations that consist a number of source materials, both original and found. The title contextualizes the show within a serial frame, one of many and the same. The press release an accompanying piece of text:

a black line, tasting of metal, cold to the touch 
the line breaks off into sideways
sidetracks, side-thoughts
a detour, a discourse
appearance: transparent solid
slightly yellow (correspond to the standard glass color piece of crodino) 

Creating new constellations through arrangement, the work also addresses the “structuring which institutions apply to their collection, the context that determines the value and truth of an object and the architecture as part of this narrative.” 

See the Galerie Fons Welters website for details.**
