Dear friends and colleagues,
From August 26th until October 7th, 2018,
I am pleased to announce "Expo Verknipt"
in which I am presenting a new work within WARP's
window display. You are more than welcome to
see this and art from "kunstenaars, samplers,
leugenaars, residenten en dissidenten."

“ [...] each perpetually assumes the guise of the other, creating that dense, many-sided and shifting reality which is the world we live in and the world we make. To tell his story is to begin to liberate us from his image and it is, for the first time, to clothe this phantom with flesh and blood, to deepen, by our understanding of him and his relationship to us, our understanding of ourselves and of all men.

[...] there are whites and blacks among us who hate each other, we will not; there are those who are betrayed by greed, by guilt, by blood lust, but not we; we will set our faces against them and join hands and walk together into the dazzling future when there will be no white or black.”^1

Twenty artists received an original copy of Signaal, a very popular German military propaganda magazine distributed during World War II in the occupied territories. Starting from this source material the artists create new work, in diverse materials and contexts. They all work on the thin line between fact & fiction, between truth & lies. 

Verknipt will be officially opened with a speech of political journalist Ivan De Vadderand with a musical sampling by opera singer Eurudike De Beul.

In co-operation with the library of Sint-Niklaas.

Description of the photo above: Way back in 1976 the word Hammerfriar 
was coined when Jill Plamann and her husband Steve decided to name any 
joint venture they created. Based on the words hammer-for-hire they would do 
anything they could to earn a dime to support their artistic ventures.

Hammerfriar Gallery celebrates its first 13 Years with a retrospective of 41 artists. This is the final show curated by influential Gallery founder, Jill Plamann, who is retiring after 40 years of presenting art. The Gallery will now continue under the direction of new owners Charly Leys and Glenn Young. Hammerfriar Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art with a vision. Since our inception in 2005, we have developed a reputation as one of Sonoma County's premier galleries -- representing both established and emerging artists from the greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Our artists are diverse in their expression and backgrounds, yet they share a common intuition and vision that is conveyed in their individual styles and mediums. Through exhibitions of paintings, sculpture and mixed media art, we come together to explore a central philosophy deeply
rooted in humanity, time and space.

From June 3rd to October 21st, 2018, 
I am pleased to announce an exhibition 
curated by Ilse Roosens of paintings by Farah Atassi
and a mixture of new and older works from my oeuvre
in Jabbeke (through Mu.Zee in Oostende, Belgium).

Like Constant Permeke’s, the works of Farah Atassi and Tramaine de Senna manifest a keen interest in folkloric motifs. The artists copy and mix the imagery of objects that are often situated in an ethnographic or design context, such as carpets, masks or toys. In the first half of the twentieth century, Permeke and several of his contemporaries adopted the forms of African masks and sculptures. They were motivated by a fascination with the aesthetic qualities of the objects.

I am pleased to announce the opening of 'There is Always An Alternative', 
an exhibition by Platform102, taking place at the Moonens Foundation in Brussels, Belgium.

Above, from left to right: a work by Arianne Foks; one of my Laborers or Mixed-Blood Motifs
and, a work from the DEVO-LUTION series.

Cultural cliches are the source of inspiration for the presentation 'There is Always an Alternative'. The show comments on the power to change mindsets towards a concept of identity that denies singularity through reinterpretations of social ethics, behavioral stereotypes, and social justice.


To coincide with 'There is Always an Alternative' a series of 'playlist interventions' will be released over the course of the presentation in collaboration with podcast Rue14n14.

Art Center Hugo Voeten - Solo Show - Tramaine de Senna - Curator: Lisa van Gerven

The Californian artist, Tramaine de Senna, is interested in the migration of forms in relation to material culture and political economies. Through a staging of her work as artifacts, de Senna cues a visual cinematic memory in relation to the viewer under which histories manifest. Next to older works, the emphasis of this exhibition will be on her most recent creations.

Tramaine de Senna (°1981, San Francisco, California) is currently based in Ghent where she is following an artist in residency at the HISK (Higher Institute of Fine Arts).
