HERINGA/VAN KALSBEEK | HANS VAN HOEK || JAN HENDERIKSE | HENK PEETERS

STAND 74

In 2020, the Kunstmuseum Den Haag bought Hunting Clouds, 2018. This sculpture is now on permanent display in the museum. It is the first sculpture in which Heringa/Van Kalsbeek create a setting, like a theatre, a diorama. The image is dynamic, a crime scene, a residue of a series of sculptural scenes.

It is the start of a series of sculptures, in which sculptural scenes take place within the setting with a mirrored wall. The performance seems to be controlled from behind, backstage, by a complex chaotic supporting structure. Frontstage is not possible without backstage.

Through a donation, the series Splendor-Spring, Summer, Winter, 2013 was also included in the collection of the Kunstmuseum this month. An important series of works investigating whether images can be a result of action rather than of solidifying a shape.
The origins of this series are the Samurai that Heringa/Van Kalsbeek made in 2004 as Artists in Residence in Paris. A charcoal drawing of a Japanese temple statue in Musée Guimet was embedded in what is perhaps best described as a three-dimensional painting. Lines and surfaces of steel, wood, rope and parts of plants absorb the core, which merges into a dynamic and sensuous excess of color and form.

ZERO
Theatre, science fiction, setting for a Shakespearean drama, sharp and flashy - the new works by Heringa/Van Kalsbeek will fill and shape the BorzoGallery stand. As a Zero contrast, on the wall is a series of embossings by Jan Schoonhoven, 'remakes' by Henk Peeters and works by Jan Henderikse from recent years.

Finally, a large and recent painting by Hans van Hoek will partly determine the image of the stand.
