Kodoji Press and Dashwood Books are pleased to invite you to a book-signing for “Unfolded: Scheltens & Abbenes” with Maurice Scheltens and Liesbeth Abbenes.

Unfolded is a book that can function as an exhibition. The physical experience of walking through the exhibition route has been imitated playfully in the book with renderings, so that readers imagine themselves to be walking through the different rooms of the gallery. This book was issued at the occasion of the show Scheltens & Abbenes: Unfolded, at Museum Jan Cunen, Oss, The Netherlands, March 2012

Ten Haaf Projects presents Andrew Gilbert at NADA Art Fair – New York City

May 4-7, 2012

Amsterdam-based Ten Haaf Projects will bring a solo presentation of Andrew Gilbert at the NADA Art Fair New York. Andrew Gilbert (1980) is an illustrator, painter, storyteller, opinionated military historian, visionary and realist all in one. Whatever his guise, however, one thing is certain: Andrew Gilbert is a creator of fictional universe, of strange and exotic incidents, where real events crop up in the various backgrounds and reveal hidden historical facts, no matter how illogically they all seem linked together. In his drawings and paintings, he expertly operates a time machine that lets him wander through history. Using tangible examples of historical events, he tracks different historical figures and examines their roles and shows who they really were. He shows what they meant for us: often orgies of violence and destruction. He reverses the splendour of military operations, lending them an effect contrary to the received wisdom and moves the misery of expansionism into the focus of attention. (text by Zdenek Felix).

Manon de Boer trilogy screening at Artists Space – New York City

April 30th, 2012 by

Friday, May 4, 2012, 7-10pm

Artists Space presents Film Trilogy: Manon de Boer, with screenings of Sylvia Kristel – Paris (2003), Resonating Surfaces (2005), Think About Wood, Think About Metal (2010).

Manon de Boer’s trilogy of films center on the 1970s, and three women’s experiences of cultural, political and social radicalism during this period. They are both intimate portraits, and ruminations on the nature of memory in relation to personal biography. Through the reframing of interviews with Dutch actress Sylvia Kristel; Brazilian psychoanalyst Suely Rolnik; and American avant-garde percussionist Robyn Schulkowsky, de Boer develops a particular asynchronicity between image and sound, in which subtle layers of editing hold their own meaning. The voice itself takes on a particular role as the coming together of language and body, relating back to relayed narratives that trace an apex between political and sensory experience. The soundscapes of each work – the ambient buzz of a city, sequences from Alban Berg’s opera Lulu, and the percussive experiments of Robyn Schulkowsky – are both disjunctive, and redolent of a geographic and mnemonic sense of place.

This event will be introduced by curator and writer Fionn Meade.
