BRAIN FLOW by Marte Haverkamp

Thoughts. They just keep on coming. 
No invitation, no warning. Ever tumbling over, through and at times even into one another.

MarteAt Dikker en Thijs art gallery, Marte Haverkamp shows a number of works from ‘HOOFD STROOM’ a series of 100 collages. And she shows the first works in a new series. At first these might seem similar but by enlarging her own motifs new powerfull works arise.

Justyna Grzebieniowska: Dances of Orishas and the Himba

New exhibition: Justyna Grzebieniowska

La prima vez-1

Justyna Grzebieniowska is from Toruń in Poland. Dance is the theme of her work. She paints all kinds of dances, but especially tribal dances that originated in Africa and later spread out over the world.

Justyna: ‘Dance and painting are my two passions. In my painting I become choreographer on the canvas. Now I am inspired by African and Cuban dances. I began my new cycle of works by participating in dance workshops lead by Yeni Mollinet who represents Conjunto Folkorico Nacional de Cuba. She was in Poland at a Salsa festival. I made sketches of her dancing, experienced dance myself and then tried to transform all this experience into painting through colour, structure, form and composition.’
Her dream is to show elements of culture in the dances of Orishas (a spirit or deity in the Yaroba religion, now wide spread in the world, especially in Latin-America),Himba (indigenous people living in northern Namibia) which can disappear in the future. ‘My paintings become the witness of what is important and what is slowly vanishing in our civilization. The beauty of the dance can last in the painting. This idea encourages me to travel, follow the dances and continue to search for more inspiration in tribal dances.’

William Klein in Foam

Foam will be dedicated to the life and work of the legendary photographer, filmmaker and designer William Klein.

The career of William Klein (b. 1928) spans more than sixty years. His work had an immense influence on photography during the second half of the twentieth century. The exhibition gives ample coverage to Klein’s ground-breaking work in New York in the 1950s while also displaying work made in Rome, Moscow and Tokyo.

This exceptional William Klein retrospective exhibition has been curated by Foam and can be seen exclusively in Amsterdam.
Throughout his long and extremely productive career, William Klein has always remained his own man: independent, unconventional, enigmatic and contrary, but in everything exceptionally talented. Sizeable exhibitions of his work can seldom be seen in the Netherlands – the last one was held in the Stedelijk Museum in 1967. Foam is therefore particularly proud to present this retrospective exhibition filling the entire museum on the Keizersgracht for three months, doing justice to the life and work of one of the greatest masters of photography.

The exhibition of William Klein can be seen until 12 March 2014 in Foam. Open daily 10am – 6pm, Thurs/Fri 10am – 9pm. Tickets: € 8,75 (William Klein surcharge: €1,25)
