ABOUT THE FAIR
Friday 24 April: Preview & Vernissage (invitation only)
Brussels Expo (Heysel), 1D-39
During Art Brussels 2015 Galerie Ron Mandos proudly presents:
Hans Op de Beeck (Turnhout, 1969) Brussels, BE
Op de Beeck has developed his career through international exhibitions over the past ten years. His work consists of sculptures, installations, video work, photography, animated films, drawings, paintings and writing. It is his quest for the most effective way of presenting the concrete contents of each work that determines the medium that the artist ultimately selects.
Anthony Goicolea (Atlanta, 1971) New York, USA
Goicolea (1971) studied Sculpture and Photography at the Pratt Institute of Art, New York. He works in different disciplines including photography, drawing, painting and video. His work has been exhibited internationally and is held in public collections.
Katinka Lampe (Tilburg, 1963) Rotterdam, NL
Lampe paints portraits or at least, you can clearly recognize the representation of a person. Yet, this is not the main motive of the painting. The portrait merely serves as reason to make the painting. The portrait is the imagery concept. Her paintings greatly appeal to the beholders.
Rob Johannesma (Geleen, 1970) Amsterdam, NL
Johannesma is interested in images or, more specifically, the symbolic potential of images and the way this potential vacillates between historic and artistic spheres. During the last few years, Johannesma developed a complex methodology of collecting images, newspaper pages, footage and contrasting photographic icons and tropes from the global media. Video work by Johannesma is part of THE CINEMA, Hall 3.
Isaac Julien (London, 1960) London, UK
Internationally acclaimed installation artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien breaks down barriers between different artistic disciplines such as film, photography, installation, music, theatre and painting. Julien was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2001 and is represented in museums and private collections all over the world.
Renato Nicolodi (Brussels, 1980) Borchtlombeek, BE
The architectural work of Nicolodi is monumental. The artist is inspired by classical architecture, which he uniquely processes. It is only when the viewer steps into the work and inspects it from close range, that he can obtain a clearer understanding of the work, as if he is invited to take part in a visual and physical search within the architectonic forms he has created.
