Breathing Colour — Hella Jongerius | National Museum Stockholm | Exhibition | 2019

The Nationalmuseum in Stockholm presents Hella Jongerius’s exhibition ‘Breathing Colour’, a visual installation that features the results of her longstanding research into colour, shape, light and materials.

On the borderline between art and design, it presents a visual examination of how colour and light interplay and change during all hours of the day. In forms of paper, textiles, ceramics, metal and plastics, designer Hella Jongerius displays her many years of artistic research into colour, light and materiality. Her study is deepened in the meeting of the works of art she has chosen from Nationalmuseum’s collections.

With associative films rich in imagery, such as Andrei Rublev (1966), Solaris (1972), The Mirror (1974) and especially Stalker (1979), Andrei Tarkovsky (1932‒1986) made his name as a leading innovator of the language of cinema.  Eye presents an exhibition devoted to the celebrated filmmaker and mystic, focusing specifically on Tarkovsky’s quest for existential truth. In addition to immersing the visitor in Tarkovsky’s imagery, the exhibition includes unique documents — letters, photos and Polaroids — that have never previously been displayed in the Netherlands.

Interlace — Hella Jongerius | Lafayette Anticipations Paris | Exhibition | 2019

Throughout summer 2019, Lafayette Anticipations invites the Dutch designer Hella Jongerius. She uses the building’s performative qualities to transform the interior space into a vast, constantly shifting loom; a giant textile studio, open to the public.
Interlace exposes the viewing public to the textile production process in order to create awareness, re-valuation and appreciation for textiles. It shows what consumers don’t usually see: the research and experimentation, the tools and materials, the trial and error that are as important as the result itself.
Throughout the three months of the exhibition, the public will be able to see new textile pieces being woven in the gallery space.

The dizzying imagination of Piranesi | Kunsthal, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2019

The Kunsthal is presenting over seventy large-format prints by Piranesi from the impressive graphic art collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. As an artist, Piranesi became known in the eighteenth century for his ‘Vedute di Roma’, an extensive series of etchings of impressive views of the ruins and monuments of Rome. In his famous series of prints featuring imaginary prisons, the ‘Carceri d’Invenzione’, Piranesi – who was originally an architect – expressed his spatial fantasies. Prints of rare quality are shown from both these series, as well as eight colossal books that highlight the dizzying imagination of Piranesi – as an artist, researcher and designer. This exhibition is part of a series of three exhibitions at the Kunsthal in the context of the city-wide project ‘Boijmans Next Door’.

Breathing Colour — Hella Jongerius | Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2018

Drawing on 15 years of colour research, designer Hella Jongerius presents a series of installations that deepen our understanding of colour. She has created a collection of specially designed objects that demonstrate how the experience of colour and form is affected by changing daylight throughout the day. In addition Hella Jongerius has selected together with artist Mathieu Meijers artworks from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
The exhibition questions our perception of colour and reflects upon the history of colour research. Hella Jongerius: Breathing Colour is a statement about the strength, imperfection and versatility of colour as a reaction to the flatness of the colours produced by industry. Ultimately, Jongerius aims to pit the power of colour against the power of form.

Picasso on paper — Boymans Next Door

Exhibition

2019

Picasso on paper — Boymans Next Door | Kunsthal, Rotterdam | Exhibition | 2019

For Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) graphic art was a medium he could experiment with to his heart’s content. Picasso produced over 2,500 prints in a great variety of techniques. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has nearly four hundred of these prints in its collection, a selection of more than seventy of which will now be shown at the Kunsthal. Some of the highlights in the exhibition ‘Picasso on paper’ include the colour linocut prints depicting still lifes, bull fights, scenes from mythology and especially women. Picasso taught himself the technique of the colour linocut in 1958, when he was already well into his seventies. This exhibition also marks the start of ‘Boijmans Next Door’, a collaboration between a number of Rotterdam museums to keep part of the Boijmans collection visible in the city over the coming years.

A Tale of Hidden Histories

2018

A Tale of Hidden Histories | Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2018

Truth, facts, memories, reality: are they all constructions? The artists Broomberg & Chanarin, Omer Fast, Chia-Wei Hsu and Meiro Koizumi deploy not only film and video but also slide projections, photographs and sound to investigate and ‘unmask’ the past.
Reportage, re-enactment, documentary and filmic techniques are some of the strategies that these artists apply to expose the subjectivity of historical sources and the limitations of memory. In stories set in various places around the world, they investigate the construction of narratives and the manner in which stories change when told and retold from different perspectives.

The works on display shed light on the history of conflict zones, those places in the world where truth and fiction are brought into sharp focus. Broomberg & Chanarin, Omer Fast, Chia-Wei Hsu and Meiro Koizumi look at the representation of war. Can a war be recounted? Is it possible to depict a war? And what is the role of the artist in this regard? These questions act as catalysts for various stories, many of them unknown or forgotten, events that happened in World War II and the Cold War, as well as more recent events in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Beyond the New — Hella Jongerius & Louise Schouwenberg | Pinakothek der Moderne, München | Exhibition | 2017

Dutch product designer Hella Jongerius and design theorist Louise Schouwenberg have been invited to develop a site-specific installation for the Paternoster Hall at Pinakothek der Moderne.

Hella Jongerius has made a name for herself with her very specific way of combining craftsmanship and industrial manufacturing. Her furniture, textile and ceramic designs are meant as a symbiosis of high and low-tech, of past and present, of traditional and innovative materials.
In her research, Louise Schouwenberg, head of the department of contextual design at the renowned Design Academy in Eindhoven, mainly focuses on the interface between art and design.

Together with Louise Schouwenberg in 2015 Hella Jongerius authored the “Beyond the New. A Search for Ideals in Design” manifesto. It opposes an industry that believes the sole goals of production are the idea of the “new” and commercial success. They contrast this to the conviction that industry first taps the potential of current manufacturing opportunities when it tackles new challenges that address high quality, sustainable products and also foster design that can be free and experimental.

A Search Behind Appearences — Hella Jongerius & Louise Schouwenberg | La Rinascente, Milan | Exhibition | 2016

This installation, commissioned by the Serpentine Galleries and presented at la Rinascente department store in Milan during the 2016 Milan Design Week, is a continuation of Hella Jongerius and Louise Schouwenberg’s collaboration on the manifest ‘Beyond the New’ (2015). A search behind appearances proposes to move beyond commercial success, beyond style differences, and beyond personal taste. The windows of La Rinascente present an interplay of small machines, fabrics and well-orchestrated shadows, which gaily mirror the world of design and suggest criteria for estimating and understanding a design’s cultural value.
The shadow play ‘A search behind appearances’ reflects on the state of affairs in design and prompts a consideration of the meanings which hide behind an object’s look.

Michelangelo Antonioni — Il maestro del cinema moderno | EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2015

EYE presents a major exhibition devoted to Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni. With his famous trilogy The Adventure, The Night and Eclipse, Antonioni became one of the most innovative directors of the 20th century.
A stylistic perfectionist, he renewed the grammar of film by thinking less in terms of narrative and more in terms of image. Film excerpts projected onto thirteen big exhibition screens show the overpowering visual force of his images. The exhibition also features unique documents, photographs and letters from the Antonioni archive in Ferrara, birthplace of the director.

“Al sinds zijn opening slaagt Eye erin exposities die in een duffe verzameling vitrines met brieven en affiches dreigen te ontaarden, tot cinematografische avonturen te maken. Ook nu is dat gelukt….”

David Cronenberg — The exhibition | EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2014

In the series of exhibitions devoted to great narrative directors such as Kubrick and Fellini, EYE presented a major exhibition focusing on director David Cronenberg, who acquired cult status with his idiosyncratic films about the relationship between body, mind, technology and mass media. His work is still very relevant in the current age of large-scale technological developments, often with unprecedented effects on the human psyche. The exhibition explored Cronenberg’s world through the main themes of his films: the physical and psychological transformation of his protagonists.

Highlights of this exhibition included the weird and wonderful special effects items from Cronenberg’s films, together with bizarre props, set photos and original costumes.

The exhibition presents the universe of the Quay Brothers and, in addition to their films, also features small installations and wonderful diorama boxes, called Dormitorium, which contain the sets they use to make their films. These sets are often meticulously assembled out of used and time-worn objects.

Fellini — The Exhibition

2013

Fellini — The Exhibition | EYE Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2013

Fellini – The Exhibition, arranged as a visual laboratory, reveals the sources of Fellini’s fertile imagination and shows how Fellini created a mythical image of himself and of Italian life both in his films and in the world at large. Moreover, the exhibition sheds light on the way in which he was able to break with the accepted linear narrative structure in his films, and how he addressed existential questions in a playful manner.
The exhibition includes fragments from the films, drawings made by Fellini, Fellini’s advertising films and the countless images from his dreams that inspired him. Furthermore, the exhibition brings together never previously-shown pictures by photographers such as Gideon Bachmann, Deborah Beer and Paul Ronald. Their behind-the-scenes photos illuminate the fantasy world of Cinecittà, the studio where Fellini shot virtually all his later films. An international selection of posters, several of which hail from the EYE collection, showed how Fellini himself tried to influence the public reception of his films over the years. Also on display are an array of magazines from the period 1960-1985 (Domenica and L’Espresso), which played an important role in forming the public image of the director, his films and the actors.

‘Fellini – The Exhibition is geen expositie die van de daken schreeuwt hoe geweldig Fellini was. En die des te meer effect sorteert wanneer je de tijd neemt om alle dwarsverbanden op je in te laten werken. Het van nissen en doorkijkjes vergeven zaalontwerp van Claus Wiersma steekt wat dat betreft precies goed in elkaar: drukke opstellingen maken net op tijd plaats voor grotere ruimtes waar je even op adem kunt komen. Ook geen gedoe met decorstukken… Een facsimile van Fellini’s dromenboek is dan nog het meest opvallende rekwisiet in deze puntgave expositie, die de beelden wonderwel voor zich laat spreken.’
