Finissage Regarding Structure

Opening 16th of November 2012 from 20:00 till 01:00
Exhibition runs from 18th of November till the finissage on December 16th.

An exhibition composed by Sarie Nijboer with works by Gemis Luciani (IT) / Csilla Klenyánszki (HU) / Thomas de Rijk (NL) / Edwin Stolk (NL) and Virginie Mossé (FR).

In search of finding hidden patterns in existing ones this exhibition will take you on a road-trip through an abstract land of geometric signs, constructed dialogues and graphic rhythms.

Using existing information to strip, connect and abstract these artists show each a different approach of interpretation. It will be important that we look for patterns that are already in our system to create new possibilities out of it. We have to go back to the basic and look at what we already have. We just need to deal with it differently.

Gemis Luciani (IT)
Marginal Compositions is a project in development centered on the investigation of a marginal spaces aesthetic qualities. The works are realized with various magazines. Every magazines page is folded in a way to erase the textual element of the previous page and to leave only the margin visible. The compositions are produced by repeating this action until the magazines surface is completely covered. Every work is a representative but not definitive image documenting this kind of spaces expressive potential.

Csilla Klenyánszki (HU)
In ‘my logic is gone or did I just find it’ the Hungarian photographer Csilla Klenyánszki is looking for the the hidden possibilities related to form and function and her own fantasy. The inspiration is her house and environment, which becomes a playground. While working with common objects, Klenyánszki tries to discover their possibilities and give a new function for them. Eventually it is just a game, which is about the fact that you can enter another world.

Thomas de Rijk (NL)
In the video ‘Superduper’ geometric forms creating an abstract landscape which brings the audience to an dynamic journey of graphic rhythms. The speed in the appearence of the elements makes it hard to step out of this fictive threedimensional world.

Virginie Mossé (FR)
Inspired by the famous Aporismus of Albert Einstein about the paradox of the human perception and interpretation the French artist Virginie Mossé created the work ‘Das ewig Unbegreifliche an der Welt ist Ihre Begreiflichkeit’. Superimposed on a closely grid of holes we are only able to read the word Bereiflichtkeit from a distance.

Edwin Stolk (NL)
Spoken stories consist of so many emotional data like voicesounds, intonations, volumes who usually get lost in a written story. In ‘Seeing sounds and hearing colors’ the Dutch graphic designer Edwin Stolk investigated how to visualize these emotions in a typographed story. As a viewer we experience while watching ‘Seeing sounds and Hearing colors’ what Stolk have experienced listening to the spoken stories. Layered textclouds of colorfull words represent fragments of these emotional data.

The Dilly-Dally Foundry

From December 2011 up till the 14th of February 2012, De Zwarte Ruyter is ringmaster to the willy-nilly realm of Dennis de Bel, accompanied by his stupendous Dilly-Dally Foundry.

The Foundry is made up out of four indispensable workshops that all together typify our local la-di-da-lion-heart to his bitter essence. No obscurities, no pretend, no mumbo-jumbo. Simply hard work, sweat and long forgotten in-between leisure will do the trick.

During his period, de Bel will produce around twenty works/ items of utmost matter that can be bought on the spot or in our unique internet store: The booklet, containing the cluster of effort, will be presented at the finnisage on the 14th of february 2012 which will be accompanied by a tailor-made performance by Gijs Gieskes.

Exhibition runs from december 5 until the finnisage on February 14 2012.

The Dilly-Dally Foundry is open wednesday till saturday from 12 – 5 pm and by appointment.

Van december 2011 tot en met 14 februari 2012 is De Zwarte Ruyter spreekstalmeester tijdens het tegen-wil-en-dank rijk van Dennis de Bel, vergezeld door zijn kolossale Dilly-Dally Foundry.

The Foundry is opgebouwd uit vier onmisbare workshops die tezamen onze lokale la-di-da-leeuwenhart typeren tot aan zijn bittere essentie. Geen onduidelijkheden, geen doen alsof, geen onzin. Simpelweg hard werk, zweet en alom vergeten tussentijdse pauzes zullen zijn truc tot een succes maken.

Tijdens zijn periode zal de Bel ongeveer twintig werken produceren welke van de grootst mogelijke materiële importantie zijn. De werken kunnen ter plaatse worden aangekocht of in onze unieke internet winkel: Het boek, met daarin het samengeraapt cluster van inspanningen, wordt gepresenteerd tijdens de finnisage op 14 februari 2012 en gaat gepaard met een maatvaste performance door Gijs Gieskes.

De tentoonstelling loopt van 5 december tot en met de finnisage op 14 februari 2012.

De Dilly Dally-Foundry is open van woensdag t/m zaterdag van 12 tot 5 uur en op afspraak.

EN De Zwarte Ruyter shows a retrospective exhibition of works by Rotterdam based photographer Geirmundur Klein. The series of Geirmundur Klein reflect on the aesthetic framework of contemporary photography. With his limited editions published in the shape of books, he turns the basically unrestrictedly reproducible photographic image into an object, into a miniature of what Jean-François Chevrier called the tableau form as the main predicate of contemporary photography.

NL De Zwarte Ruyter toont een overzichtstentoonstelling van werken van de in Rotterdam gevestigde fotograaf Geirmundur Klein. De series van Geirmundur Klein reflecteren op het esthetische kader van de hedendaagse fotografie. Met zijn in beperkte edities verschenen kunstenaarsboeken draait hij het principe van het onbeperkt reproduceerbare fotografisch beeld om in een object. Een miniatuur welke Jean-François Chevrier benoemd als tableau form, het belangrijkste predicaat van de hedendaagse fotografie.
