A question of art Oil on canvas 120×100
By Mack

My two paintings at this exhibition are exploring the difference between a monochrome (black/white) and colour painting. Two paintings, same image but different experience. How does the added colour change our experience of the painting? Are you, as an observer, attracted to the colours, the brushwork or do you like the story of the painting? Which one do you like more, the monochrome or coloured painting? You can let me know on Instagram/ dh.mack Instagram/dh.mack Facebook/dhmack

Starting May 12, 2021

(z)onder het water is a light installation that, by combining light, sound and wind, aims to transport the spectator to another world.

Tiago Sá da Costa’s Casuluz lamps, previously presented as design products, are here re-contextualized and multiplied, to create a unique ambience of wonder and experience that awakes in the spectator feelings of curiosity, marvel and comfort.

The precision and technology of laser cutting is juxtaposed with the organicity and handcrafting of cork to give shape to the lamp shades. In these peculiar cork pods, the warm light bounces around on its inner surface and escapes through its slits, projecting itself onto the walls and affects the imaginary of the viewer. The light projections are combined with motion and sound, producing a peculiar atmosphere that transports the spectator to a make-believe underwater world.

February 09, 2020 – 4pm opening                                                                 February 01 – March 01 on show: Emilija Angelovska

Short biography
Emilija Angelovska (born in Macedonia, living in the Netherlands) is an artist, educator, and change agent.
She is fascinated with how humans construct their social identity and cultivate a feeling of belonging, in the past as it relates to religious groups and currently, as it relates to community art projects. This has motivated her investigation into unconventional practices in the art world, cumulated into the Back to the Drawing Board podcast. These interviews with respected individuals (Jeremy Diamond, CEO of Myseum, Toronto; Lady PheOnix, curator and entrepreneur; Rodika Tchi, Feng Shui expert; etc.) and institutions (Beautiful Distress, The Netherlands; Uppercase Magazine, Canada; Sketchbook Skool, USA; Brockley Max, UK; etc.) validate her approach with insight, while simultaneously transferring knowledge and motivating social interventions.
Emilija has shown her work in galleries in Amsterdam, Calgary and Edmonton. Alongside her artistic and research practice she holds professional experience from the Smithsonian Institution and Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. In 2016 she was the recipient of the Kathleen & Russell Lane Canadian Art Award.

Manuel Olias (Valencia, Spain 1971) created a drawing covering the show window in his unique handwriting. Read more

I am in recent times projecting images to redraw them. Photographs or frames of videos. A domestic magic lantern, a journey through my YouTube favorites and the fake multicolored pencil game is all that hides the suggestion. I present mural drawings on paper that are at the same time artist books displayed. Smooth paper, without texture, where the light refracts smoothly until the next fold. Basic material as a support, on which I have drawn lines made with colored pencils, pastels and markers. Wall drawings. A large format to induce immersion to the viewer within the surface of the paper. The line is a line of changing colors that travels between areas of light and shadow. Fata morgana. An iridescence of the line as if it were an atmospheric effect or a meteorological phenomenon.
Manuel Olías

Juliy 04, 2019 (opening 3pm) tot 27 augustus 2019 Window_Show showing Marjolijn Rijks in collaboration with Charlotte Neel Ritto.


“We need to develop an open vision, a simple way of seeing that is totally receptive, free of all tendencies to label and judge.” *

Charlotte and Marjolijn share a common interest in spiritual practices and in painting. Specifically for the windowshow_ they investigated the notion of open vision and transparency both in their joint creative process as in the form of the painting itself. They explored a space where commonality would emerge. A space where their ‘pictorial’ identities would be challenged and intertwined.

What you see is what you see, is what you see.

May 31, 2019 (finissage 15:00 – 19:00u) Window_Show with the last work of Sara-Lot van Uum.

The works that will be shown during the Window_show period will be part of Sara-Lot’s current exploration of ‘The Cold Gaze: material diagrammatics as artistic practice.’ In which she uses the diagram as it is understood in scientific usage, but especially as a method for artistic research: providing ways to tap into the ‘blueprints’ of machines that offer us cultural content.

HOW TO TURN A HOUSE INTO A BOOK is the response to a window, an address, a sleeping space, a working space, curtains and doors, tense wires of past and future curtains, hanging, a door with a lock with a curtain, a bed with a door as a frame, the sound of the blinds, a made up entrance, with holes on top of doors, three ladders, cream, pink and pistachio green, pipes disappearing, the heat from underneath. The work is a matter of documentation as translation, of the traces of use, wear and presence.
