My Name Is Sander Dekker

Sander Dekker

02-30.06.2018

On Saturday the 2nd of June opens My Name Is Sander Dekker, a solo exhibition by

photographer Sander Dekker at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. One part of the exhibition

shows photo's that belong to the ongoing series 'The Project', while the other part is an

installation called 'TenFifteen', consisting of thousands of tiny photographs. The style of

Dekker is easily recognizable, due to his working method that could be described as

spontaneous and playful. When shooting, Dekker does not know how the photos will turn

out in the end, as he always tries to capture the unexpected.

On Saturday the 14th of April opens The Worst Is Yet To Come: relics from a recent past (clock doesn't say 3:46 pm), a solo exhibition of TINKEBELL. at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Over the past twenty years TINKEBELL. has made it her personal mission to save the world. To achieve this goal, she initiated diverse and frequently controversial projects, all over the world, not often left undiscussed by the media. The physical remainings of these activities she turned into art objects, called 'relics'. They go from old personal documents, photos, the packages of painkillers she took after her sterilisation, the human bones she brought back from the ground of the collapsed textile factories 'Rana Plaza' (Bangladesh) till clocks (that doesn't say 3:46 pm) and the plants she picked in the affected zones of Fukushima and much more. In this exhibition, a selection of these relics is shown to the public.

Unreal’, a collaboration between Oedipus Brewing and Thijs Zweers.

 

On Saturday the 10th of March opens Unreal, the second solo exhibition of Thijs Zweers at

TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Once again Zweers presents black powerful drawings made with

Siberian chalk and charcoal, in which he examines the boundaries between our world and the

virtual one. In a time when people spend more and more time in front of screens, looking towards

realistic representations of what is actually around us, the certainty of what is real and what is not,

disappears slowly.

Acid Flowers, the second solo-exhibition of Dutch photographer Louise te Poele for TORCH gallery in Amsterdam, will open on Saturday the 27th of January between 5-7pm. With this exhibition, Louise will introduce a new body of work by means of a spectacular gallery-filling installation. Where her previous work was made in the spirit of the 17th century Dutch masters of the still life, these new pieces are futuristic flower arrangements bathing in bright neon lights. She orchestrates wondrous compositions of found objects that playfully disrupt suggestions of movement, scale and vanitas. After the opening the exhibition will be on view until Saturday the third of March.

Super salon shuffle - yoga session: Friday the 24th of November, 2-3 pm

Opening during the Amsterdam Art Weekend: Saturday the 25th of November, 5-8pm

 

On Saturday the 25th of November a group exhibition curated by Gijs van Lith, entitled The Browsing Chamber, will open at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Five young international talents will present works in a salon-style exhibition that will cover the entire surface of the backspace of the gallery, from floor to ceiling. All participating artists make process-based abstract works which relate to painting in a systematic manner. These young artists are inspired by their largely digital surroundings and the way images are indexed on the internet. Before the festive opening, the salon will be the location for an intense yoga session, the marks of which will become part of the final presentation. This installation can be viewed as a three-dimensional interpretation of a google image search. The neatly organized grids of images provided by search engines have become a point of first contact for people interested in the work of an artist.Entering the backspace should speak of human scale and our interaction with artworks grounded in their material.

21.10.2017 – 18.11.2017

Opening met performance “LOK KEDE KOM A” van Christine Ayo: zaterdag 21 Oktober tussen 17:00 en 19:00

 

Op zaterdag 21 oktober opent People say I'm different, een solo-tentoonstelling met nieuwe werken van Anya Janssen bij galerie TORCH in Amsterdam. De werken tonen de ontmoeting tussen Anya Janssen en Christine Ayo, een jonge kunstenares uit Oeganda. Ayo is zich bewust van haar positie als de 'ander' in de ogen van velen. Ze gebruikt dit spel met perceptie als machtsmiddel, haar uitstraling is haar eigen bezit. Janssen is gefascineerd door de visie van Ayo op de wereld en het contrast met haar eigen positie als mens, kunstenaar en Europeaan. Ze zoekt naar een gelijkwaardig contact en beseft

zich gaandeweg: als je een verbintenis met iemand aangaat, wordt hij of zij onderdeel van je wezen. Je bent minder autonoom dan je denkt. Er ontstaat een poreuze identiteit waar het statische 'ik' plaats maakt voor een fluïde ‚wij'.

On Saturday the 9th of September TORCH will start a new season of art with Paintings, an exhibition of new work by Dutch painter Philip Akkerman. For Paintings, Akkerman has collaborated with the well known graphic designer Dennis Koot, who has designed a series of 'Frames' based on Philip's most recent works. These frames deconstruct and unhinge Philips paintings on panel until they become wild, vector-based installation pieces. The Friday before the opening of Paintings will mark the launch of Château Akkerman, a special bock-style beer brewed by the Amsterdam based brewery Oedipus in collaboration with the artist. The festive launch will take place from 5pm on the 8th of September at the Oedipus Taproom and will include a tasting, an artist talk andmusic by DJ Akkerman.

Grayscale, a group exhibition featuring three contemporary photographers working in black and white, will open on Saturday the 12th of August between 5 and 7 pm at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Although the methods of arriving at an image differ wildly for each of the three participating artists, they all blend classic sensibilities with a contemporary temperament. They take idyllic themes like still lives, pastoral family bliss and the wondrous nature of the Indonesian islands and give them an intelligent twist using photographic techniques, unexpected vantage points and their personal engagement with the subject matter.

On Saturday the 27th of May between 5-7 pm The Garden of Hell on Earth, a solo-exhibition by Canadian artist Eldon Garnet will open at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. With a series of large-scale photographs depicting a post-apocalyptic narrative of struggle and lasting hope of biblical proportions he sets the tone for the final chapters of his long and fruitful career as an artist. These labor-intensive and highly ambitious pieces form a new lexicon for recovery as a fundamental human trait. After all the processes deemed as progress come to a grinding halt, when the modern age has had its grand finale and there is nothing left but soot and stone, then humans will inevitably start rebuilding their world.

TORCH gallery Amsterdam is pleased to announce it's fifth solo exhibition by Dutch photographer Popel Coumou. New Work will open on Saturday the 8th of April between 5- 7pm. A new publication will be printed for the occasion and Popel will present a limited edition box set including a small work and all previous publications in the series. In her recent work she has made a surprising shift in her artistic framework towards more instable forms and less defined vistas. It is a reorientation on the way photographs can suggest time, space and light and simultaneously a reinterpretation of the visual patterns that have occurred throughout her work. Besides these photographs she will also present lightboxes and three dimensional collages.

TORCH gallery Amsterdam is honored to host Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich - Homage to Photographic Masters, a solo exhibition of photographs by world renowned Chicago-based photographer Sandro Miller. For this exhibition Sandro has reinterpreted a selection of iconic photographs that have been of great importance for his own career. He painstakingly re-staged some of the hallmarks in the history of the medium and then introduced only one significant change; their main subject became John Malkovich. This celebrated actor has known Miller for over 18 years and they have collaborated on several occasions since they met at the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Now they have joined forces again to showcase both the chameleon-like qualities of Malkovich as an actor and Millers' expertise in the field of photography. The exhibition will open on Saturday the 27th of February between 5-7pm. Sandro Miller will be present for the opening. After this festive event the exhibition will be on view until Saturday the 9nd of April.

Opening: Saturday the 9th of January - 5-7pm

Open on Wednesday - Saturday - 12-6pm

 

TORCH opens the new year with a solo-exhibition of new work by Ellen Kooi. This Dutch photographer enjoys international recognition for her panoramic photographs of the relation between man and landscape. The protagonists in her pieces are often young people expressing signs of intense inner turmoil. In her work Ellen Kooi searches for the exact moment in which this inner struggle becomes external. A swarm of birds or the reflection of clouds in a body of water become symbolic for personal development and submerged emotions. In other pieces the landscape itself is the main actor of the composition and Ellen lets her models emphasize the natural dynamic of the location.

On Saturday the 27th of June Instances, a solo-exhibition by Eelco Brand, will open at TORCH gallery Amsterdam. 'Instance' refers to both the occurrence of an event and the term used in modelling-software for the realization of a digital object. Brand constructs synthetic reflections of the tangible world. His detailed interpretations of reality balance between a plausible rendering of this reality and the clinical appearance of a digital facade. He offers a fragile suggestion of life while letting the impersonal, untouchable consequences of a digital re-creation shine through.

Opening Saturday the 16th of May between 5-7pm
On Saturday the 16 th of May Comme une grappe estivale d’hélices de Pise by the Swiss Rabus family will open at TORCH gallery in Amsterdam. Renate, Léopold, Till and Alex will be present at the opening. Together they will transform TORCH into a fragment of their own private universe. Driven by art, Switzerland and the humanistic obligation to explore themes of identity and time they each travel distinctly separate artistic roads. These roads will sometimes intersect to form an exhibition. It will be an event spanning several generations, media and conceptual frameworks. However, as with a lot of families, everything will be connected in unexpected ways. Works comment on each other, or refer to subjects unique to the Rabus family. By playfully touching on broad ideas, ranging from Art History to globalism, they invite the general public to partake in this family get-together.

On Saturday the 4th of April a solo-exhibition of new work by Popel Coumou will open at TORCH gallery Amsterdam. Popel's third exhibition at the gallery will focus on an exciting new direction for her work. Her instantly recognizable analogue photographs of collages are gradually moving towards a higher, more abstract plane. By letting go of volume she lets light reign freely. Slowly but steadily she manages to switch background and foreground, resulting in a simmering emptiness. An emptiness that is further explored in a new series of lightboxes, which use the changing intensity of light to continuously influence the character of the image.

On Saturday the 21 st of February TORCH will proudly open La tête de Marie Antoinette est tombé, the first solo-exhibition by Louise te Poele at the gallery. The exhibition will focus on her series of still-lifes inspired by the light found in paintings by old Dutch masters. Louise has made it a habit to collect completely unrelated things, ranging from trash in her studio to exotic fish found at her local oriental supermarket. Using these objects she creates dynamic compositions that amount to far more than the sum of their parts. They are classic still-lifes, detached from Vanitas and vanity.

TORCH will open the new year with a solo-exhibition of work by Nynke Koster (1986). Space is my mould will be her first presentation at the gallery. koster's work balances on the border between design and autonomous work. When does an object become furniture, and when can furniture beseen as a work of art? And what are the consequences of this question of definitions on the interaction between object and spectator? To find the answers to these questions Koster creates synthetic casts of architectural fragments, spaces and bodies. This exhibition will open on Saturday the 10th of January and will be open to the public until Saturday the 14th of February.

In The House (2013 onwards) Anya Janssen distorts a linear experience of time. She lets the past coincide with the present and by doing so she tells the tale of a house. The villa and park she lives in also form the subject of her studies. The location itself has been marked by a turbulent and long history. The first residents were a wealthy family from the city of Arnhem. Then the house was transformed into a monastery for the 'Sisters of Love', only to end up as the headquarters for the German SS. In 1944 the house was bombed and destroyed during the final years of The Second World War.

'Das ewige Weltauge' describes a concept introduced by German philosopher ArthurSchopenhauer. All living creatures view the world from their own eyes. Individuals are born and individuals pass away, but what remains is an ever seeing eye. Without this eye darkness rules. The eyes of an earthworm are different from those of a human. Consequently, an earthworm sees a different world than the one humans see. The functioning of our eye determines the way we view the world. The truthful appearance of the tangible world is unknown to all.

Dutch fashion label yousasme measyou will be exhibiting at TORCH gallery Amsterdam from the 27th of October until the 8th of December . The Social Show centers on the art of sharing, a mentality closely connected with the knitwear- and jersey-label started by Mark van Vorstenbos and Twan Janssen. These pioneers of the fashion industry established their brand in 2010 with the help of crowdfunding. Since then the concept of sharing is interwoven in all their activities, ranging from design and financing to their way of communication.

David Kramer was born on a small island of the coast of America, where he continues to live and work. From this perch Kramer has a front row seat to view the rest of the country. As experienced by most New Yorkers, America is the part that you have to pass over while flying to the only other city of consequence on the continent, Los Angeles. Los Angeles; the destination city, city of dreams. The place where the sun sets on the American Dream on a daily basis.

On Saturday the 25th of February, between 5-7pm, TORCH gallery proudly opens The Shapeshifter, an exhibition by Anya Janssen. In collaboration with a composer, a writer and a video-maker she creates a synergistic Gesamtkunstwerk inspired by Ivy; a twelve year old girl that lives partly detached from civilization together with her mother. In a small red mobile home she coexists with her animals and nature on the fringe of Dutch urbanity. The stories this girl told Janssen inspired her to create an installation piece focusing on Ivy's way of shifting personalities between civilization and her own private universe. A new catalogue for the project will be available at the gallery. After the opening the works will be exhibited until the 7th of April

On Saturday the 7th of January TORCH gallery Amsterdam will proudly start the new year with Gardenesque, a solo exhibition by Dutch/Australian artist Gary Carsley. After the festive opening his works will be exhibited until the 18th of February. Facebook RSVP

 

Carsley creates immersive installation pieces that play on feelings of comfort and security within man-made natural settings such as parks and gardens. The pieces that will be exhibited at TORCH are inspired by the 18th century Dutch tradition of the 'behangselschilderij': fully painted sections of wallpaper that offered inhabitants views into Arcadian fantasy gardens or impressions of famous idyllic vistas. Besides this starting point the works also function as an re-appropriation of Gilbert and George's The Tuileries (1974). For this piece the famous Living Sculptures decorated a Amsterdam gallery space with charcoal drawings of an English garden and furnished it as a living room. Carsley transports this piece into the 21st century by creating a fully printed living space based on a modern version of the classical Chinese garden. To accompany this exhibition a special audio tour was made using QR-codes.
