ABOUT THE FAIR
Galerie Ron Mandos is delighted to participate in the first edition of Art Island, taking place from Thursday March 3 to Saturday March 5, 2022. Art Island is a new fair for contemporary art with 24 of the best galleries in Amsterdam.
The fair will take place on Fort Island, a 4-hectare former defense island in the mouth of the North Sea Canal near IJmuiden, which is a UNESCO heritage site. A boat connection takes visitors to their destination. Art Island also promises to be exclusive. Due to the corona measures, the fair is sold out with a total of 1,600 visitors. It is necessary to reserve a time slot. For more information click here.
Inside the underground bunkers of Fort Island, we will be showing a new video work by Jacco Olivier of an active volcano. This video is an animation of at least 100 painted mountains in which each image shows a slight change in movement. Olivier photographed each painting and assembled them on his computer into an astonishing film that grabs us and doesn’t let go. Watch a teaser of the film Saint Victoire below.
