Wallpapers & gas tanks


holth2018wallpapers.gastanks600



31 maart - 25 april 2018








Kimball Gunnar Holth werkt met los getrokken beschilderd canvas, douchetegels, gipsplaat en combineert die met brokken piepschuim en puin. Het levert onrustige installaties op met daarin weinig of geen kant-en-klaar werk. Het proces van werken is na de gedane arbeid in alle stilte achteraf nog steeds in zijn installaties te traceren. Als een bevroren moment van energie liggen een aantal schilderingen en objecten bij elkaar in spanning te wachten. Maar op wat?

In 'Wallpaper & gas tanks' is een los staande galeriemuur beplakt met fotografisch bedrukt behang. Het is een installatie die een brug wil slaan tussen het kant-en-klare en het gebaar dat de schilder toont met kwast, verf op muur of keukentegel. Maar wat doen de jerry cans in deze context; de fik erin? Of is het energie die in toom gehouden moet worden?



English text

Kimball Gunnar Holth works with ripped off painted canvas, shower tiles, plasterboard and combines these with chunks of styrofoam and debris. This results in restless installations with little to no cash-and-carry works. The process of working may still be traced down after the work is done and silence is there. As a frozen moment several paintings and objects are together waiting in suspense. But waiting for what?

In "Wallpaper & gas tanks" a long gallery wall is sticked on with photo printed wallpaper. It is an installation that apparently wants to overcome the ready-and-finished with the gesture that the painter shows with brush, paint on wall or kitchen tile. But what are the gas tanks doing in this context; to light it on fire? Or is it energy that has to be kept in check?

STEEL STILLMAN

wallpaintings

in GvG


2 June - 8 July 2018




OPENING: Saturday 2 June, 5 - 9 pm



Steel Stillman is renowned for creating blind spots in his photos, wall drawings and even his text works. In his exhibition "Prospects" the emphasis is put on a site-specific 17-meter-long wall drawing that represents the contours of a flattened interior, which might almost be the result of an exquisite corpse. On it, an enigmatic double portrait is hung. Both the wall painting and the photo have a broken appearance. Something is missing; story, place and situational precision are unclear.

In science it is known that the remembrance of an event changes each time it is recollected. Steel Stillman touches upon the dubious visualisation and reconstruction of personal history. For decades, in his snapshot photography, he has sensed that this is also applicable to his own past and present; his photos often depict a distant recollection of what happened. Hence a nostalgic undertone is noticeable.

The past is difficult to record like the future is difficult to foresee. The time ahead hides a priori blind areas of remembrance. Perhaps it is something we could take into account when telling a story or showing a photo. Our personal recollections have the prospect of becoming bumpy and fragmented. Will they become as uncertain as the pages of a family album, triggering viewers to project what was once there?
