Archi-Sculpture

9 september 2015

Een aanwinst voor de Provence en voor het plaatsje l’Isle sûr la Sorgue aldaar is de Villa Datris, een expositieruimte waar voornamelijk sculptuur getoond wordt. Deze zomer is, bij wijze van hommage aan Tristan Fourtine, een tentoonstelling samen gesteld die sculptuur laat zien die een wisselwerking heeft met archtectuur en architecten inspireert. Fourtine was een architect en mede initiator van de Villa Datris, hij werkte samen met Jean Nouvel en had nauwe banden met de “Groupe Espace” die zich in de avant garde van de aan architectuur verwante kunst bevond.

De tentoonstelling is vol en laat veel details zien, maar voor een onbevangen buitenstaander valt er veel te genieten met werk van veel internationaal bekende kunstenaaars in een prachtig pand met een erg mooie tuin.

Art Athína 2015- The Fair

7 juni 2015

The last day of the fair, lines in front of the Taekwondo hall all day and an unending stream of visitors visiting our booth. Our work has been received well, lots of flags of Maarten have been taken along and reactions were great! We have to thank Artemis Potamianou and her Platforms crew for a great week and EX-MÊKH hopes to be back next time. In this post you will find some interesting art from the main floor to finish  the report on Art Athena 2015.

EX-MÊKH@ Platforms Project – Art Athina day 8: the galleries

18 mei 2014

On our last day in the Platform Projects I tried to get an impression of the galleries on the floor of the stadium. Not many of the succesful international art-army are shown here which to me is a relief. You get a nice impression of art in the Levant, the eastern part of the Mediterranian. I noticed a number of interesting Photographers and some interesting galleries. I understand that not all the large galleries in Greece are represented here which is a pity, it would complete the image for people who are not aware of this region. Artemis Potamianou really made a relevant selection of highlights for her exhibition “Statement made” I think. All in all Art Athína has been a very interesting and rewarding view on an area that I was not really aware of. I would really like to take part again and I hope that I will get a chance to do so.
