Exhibiting Artists

  • Barberini & Gunnell  (+)

    Detailed Description : The architectural designer duo Barberini & Gunnel consist of Italian Francesco Barberini (Cesena, 1978) and half Austrian, half English Nina Alexandra Gunnell (Marbella, 1976). With an educational background in architecture and design, their studio is the result of a long pursued passion of creating objects far from the industrial reality; one-off pieces and limited editions. The choice of the best and most precious materials, the maniacal cure for detail are the basis of their modus operandi aiming to create timeless pieces. Every artwork has it’s inspirational background, it’s story.

  • Reinier Bosch  (+)

    Biography : Reinier Bosch’s (1980, Groningen) works are inspired by photographic reality both in his native Netherlands and abroad. He observes life in different cultures and translates what he experiences into his creative process. His works are layered, in the composition and arrangement of materials, but also in the stories they tell. The use of common materials and a reference to everyday life is characteristic of his work. At the core of Reinier Bosch’s work is the notion that the universe exists as pure energy.

  • Peter Macapia  (+)

    Biography : Peter Macapia is an artist, architect and scholar. He is the founder of labDORA, an internationally recognized architectural research and design studio, and Peter Macapia Studio. Both of which he started after he received his Ph.D. from Columbia University where he was awarded the Presidential Fellowships. Originally from Vashon Island in the Pacific Northwest, Macapia moved to the Northeast originally to study art and philosophy. His studies led to other areas of interest including history, political philosophy, and architecture. His various projects, from installations and publications to collaborations with artists and engineers such as Vito Acconci and Buro Happold, aim to move between and consolidate various problems in the relation between objects and space. As part of this effort, Macapia is simultaneously engaged as a Professor, where he works through different problems sets with his graduate students in various institutions. Macapia most recent exhibition at the HDLU in Zagreb focused on the relation between the origin of currency, contrapposto, and the city state in ancient Greece. Since then he has been working on a series of essays on the history of force, a book on the relational notion of power, and a series of sculptures based on Hellenistic and Roman ethics.

  • Vincenzo Marsiglia  (+)

    Detailed Description : Vincenzo Marsiglia was born in Belvedere Marittimo (CS) in 1972. He studied at Art Institute in Imperia followed by Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, which he graduated with specialization in Painting. He began to exhibit his works during the nineties with solo and group shows at private galleries, museums and public spaces in Italy and abroad. A four-pointed star has become a recurring element of his art, a distinctive “logo” of the artist. The composition of Vincenzo’s works encompasses chaotic movements generating different elements in which this star symbol appears. The artist refers to the masters of Abstraction and Minimalism for rigorous and balanced vision and ideas. In his latest series of works the artist uses modern – day technology in combination with his characteristic pictorial signs. His works encompass the new sense of contemporaneity linked to modern communication tools that are so familiar to our daily lives. Vincenzo’s desire, however, is not limited to displaying precise technological solutions or tangible objects, but to provide objects that find their completion in the interaction with the viewer. With the reduction of distance between the viewer and the art pieces, comes an unpredictable and potentially endless amount of changes in the movement.

  • Salustiano  (+)

    Detailed Description : Salustiano is a Spanish artist from Seville. Salustiano’s pictorial work, meant to be a homage to the great masters of the Renaissance, represents the human body from a hyperrealistic stand. The artist takes away the canvas background entirely and focuses on the person represented in the work. He highlights the person’s face in particular in search of revealing their true nature and soul.

  • Kor Smeenge  (+)

    Biography : After a tumultuous ride Kor got his master’s degree in fine arts at the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) in 2005. Kor returned to Groningen where he once studied fine arts at Academie Minerva. In these years the groundwork was layed for his artistic career. Already in his years at Academy Minerva Kor showed a keen interest in nature and science. And later having a mathematician as a mentor at DAI made sure he would embrace this flavor of arts to the fullest extent ever since. In Groningen he started producing ‘instruments’; applied artistic extensions of the senses. These autonomous instruments would be played by physical aspects of the surroundings they were exposed to. Transducing for instance what they ‘felt’ into musical score and play it. But also, a variety of other automatons were made, each susceptible to some distinct parameter in their physical surroundings. Not interactive but rather reactive. This line of thought is illustrative of Kor’s world view. Set up an experiment and see. The interactions of his instruments with their surroundings illustrate the artists ability to tap into the fundamentals of reality. What makes pressure sound, why does my mind construct time, why can we only see so much light? ..Think of a boy gazing at the stars. This is all playground. His fascinations for nature and science in all their marvellous appearances are sincere. At the same time, they function as vehicles. The ‘why’ is as much about being able to produce the instrument itself as it is about what insight they convey. Kor is a techno lover, hopeless audiophile, self-thought in dynamics, electronics and well, ..even sacred geometry. Fine mechanical artmaking is a means of engaging deeper considerations on science and nature but also a means to letting off some steam and be hands-on. Without ever expecting a simple answer to; ‘why these media’ Kor’s body of work has very much been a means to play out fantasies of being the scientist that would give definit

  • Catharina van de Ven  (+)

    Detailed Description : Catharina van de Ven: “As an artist I highly admire the classic visual language of the early sculptors. I am fascinated by their artisan idiom and behold the quality of their heritage with great respect. This fascination, and the classic sculpting education I enjoyed in Belgium and Florence, make that the artisan craft is always visible in my work and remains the foundation of all that I create. Modern techniques, such as 3D printing and synthetics, present new and equally intriguing challenges for me to translate materials into monumental work. Yet, I have found that the old processes of shaping, casting, grinding and polishing are essential to reach perfection and instill authenticity in my sculptures. As a result, old and new melt into the core of my work which always embodies an unavoidable narrative or suggestive element. For me, every piece of work has to originate from a genuine experience and must have its own sincere identity. A lot of thought, emotion, and progressive insight go into the making of my work which, in the end, is meant to connect with the viewer.”

  • Carolina Wilcke  (+)

    Detailed Description : “As a three-dimensional painting it gives the space atmosphere and warmth.” Carolina Wilcke (1980 Leiden, The Netherlands) is fascinated by the interface between function and decoration. Art is functional, it can make you happy, or serve as a decor for a room. On the other hand, appliances and utensils can also be used as art. In Tafelgenoten, a series of tableware, these two qualities come together and compliment each other. ”The context or situation in which they are placed gives them meaning. Everyone can think of something else to do with these products, they stimulate the fantasy.” Carolina Wilcke, esthete and artisan, works in an intuitive way and with different materials, crafts and techniques. She designs everything from jewelry to tableware and furniture. Products are for her not only functional objects, but they are also objects between which we live, they are our companions. “They should have an own identity and make us feel at home”. Carolina was co-founder of De Intuïtiefabriek in 2010. Together with Amba Molly, Eefiene Bolhuis and Eva Gevaert they layed ground for the vision of De Intuïtiefabriek. From 2013 Carolina decided to continue with her solo career.

Other Represented Artists

  • Alex Chinneck  (+)

    Detailed Description : Uniting the disciplines of art, architecture, theatre and engineering, the work of British sculpture Alex Chinneck is monumental in ambition and impact, producing contextually responsive interventions that animate the place in which they stand. Alex Chinneck is a graduate of Chelsea College of Art and a trustee of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.

  • Kacper Hamilton

    Biography : Kacper Hamiltonis a British artist and designer. He trained at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and at ECAL/Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne. Hamilton’s work explores ritual and storytelling as tools through time to communicate with deities as well as the spiritual world. His interest spans the history, culture and art of old, with a special fascination for places of worship and sacrosanct articles used therein for specific ceremonies. His mythic objects appear as if ready for use by a shaman or priest in a secret and sacred rite. They have an engineered, monolithic and sculptural aesthetic, which are stripped back in detail and minimal in form. Hamilton creates modernity through bringing elements of the past into a contemporary context with manifest respect and sensitivity. His practise varies from conceptual design, exclusive commissions, limited editions and installations.

  • Dominic Harris  (+)

    Detailed Description : Dominic Harris is an artist who uses technology to construct highly personal interpretations of the natural phenomena which surround us. His reverence for nature, coupled with his fascination for code, offers a surreal and whimsical take on reality, which ultimately challenges our own perceptions of the world about us. His responses, aesthetic yet playful, conceal a carefully-observed commentary on the digitisation of our daily experiences, which plays both upon our emotions, and our relationship with the technology-fueled 21st century Pop Culture. As these technologies, unstoppable and fascinating, invade our lives, and intrude upon us in ever more intimate ways, Dominic captures the sometimes-menacing march of the information age, and turns it to our advantage, in an insightful and seamless blending of nature with code. He is part of a small, and important, coterie of artists who are pushing the envelope of feasibility, and redefining what is acceptable, within the art world. Dominic graduated from Cranbook Kingswood School in Michigan, and returned to England to read Architecture at the Bartlett School, University College, London. He graduated with top distinctions, qualifying as an architect in 2003, and going on to work for the avant-garde architectural practice Future Systems. In 2007 Dominic founded his own studio in Notting Hill, London, where he and his team design, engineer, code and fabricate his artworks and installations. Since 2012 Dominic has been represented by the Dutch gallery Priveekollektie Contemporary Art & Design; his works are exhibited at the most important art and design fairs across the globe, and in several major permanent galleries and foundations.

  • Kranen / Gille  (+)

    Biography : Jos Kranen (Tegelen 1977) Jos Kranen graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2004. His work is best described as innovative and a bit alienating, yet accessible on multiple levels. He hovers between a certain anxiety to know how things work or to be blissfully unaware, and just enjoying and making new products. Johannes Gille (Marburg 1979) Johannes Gille graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2004. Johannes’ work always originates from the character he assigns to a specific object. Designing in this way enables him to create somewhat surrealistic but always utterly functional designs....

    Detailed Description : The work of Kranen/Gille reflects them as persons. A strong personal touch and character would be the best way to describe the objects they design. Always based upon craftsmanship, techniques old and new and never making their story too big makes Kranen/Gille what they are, but don’t be mistaken by the sight of a lovely mountain view in the back of one of their A “...” Chairs, for there is always a hidden layer. Inspired by abandoned places, industrialisation, factory and craftsmanship processes they are constantly renewing themselves in order to express their feeling towards functionality.
