We are glad to participate in the Main Section of Art Rotterdam 2020 with a group presentation of contemporary painting by a.o. Frank Ammerlaan, Alicia Framis, David Haines, Noor Nuyten, Florian and Michael Quistrebert and Dennis Rudolph. While painting is usually considered the most traditional form of art, these artists continue to reinvent the medium through their use of unconventional materials and techniques.

projections with Florian & Michael quistrebert
In the video section of Art Rotterdam 2020, Projections, the work Stripes 3 (2015) by Florian and Michael Quistrebert will be shown. The brothers Quistrebert combine video and painting and explore the effects of light and shade, while bringing forward ideas of fascination, manipulation of the gaze, and their relationship to hypnosis, ecstasy and trance states. The brothers temporarily engulf their audience with perceptions of alternative realities. In the presence of their works, art theories and materials become secondary, and one is compelled to approach and experience their works with a pure primal spirit.
