29 September – 3 October
Booth number 35
We are joining ART The Hague this year with works from Isabelle Borges, Ties Ten Bosch, Jan ten Have and Daan den Houter.
In her mostly abstract works, Isabelle Borges explores patterns and structures she encounters in the visible world. Her main focus is on the geometry of the spaces between things and the resulting spatial dynamics. She generates pictorial spaces that expand and contract evoking spatial fabrics in motion.
The praxis of Ties ten Bosch is characterized by a provocative surrealistic approach to actual everyday traces that we leave behind. I integrate these banal tracks with social, political, and current issues as a paradox and thereby alienate them from their everyday life. This often leads to works that result in an unceasing questioning of viewing habits and of sculpture itself. With these works, I create an alternative storyline of reality itself. It makes the viewer question everything that is part of our own presence.
The works of Jan ten Have consist of different materials, like the paintings done on porcelain, canvas or wood. All shapes and outlines of and within the paintings are askew, the colors familiar yet off balance at the same time. This forms only a small part of the vast oeuvre of conceptual art works by Ten Have.
Exhibition Guide We Will Find It Jan Ten Have
Daan den Houter is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist. The visual language he uses to externalize his ideas varies from video, installation, and sculpture to activities where he allows the public to become part of the artwork. Money, identity, art, its granted value and generally accepted perceptions of these themes are what Den Houter’s work evolves around.
