Elsewhere: “Agnosia” in CBK Zuidoost, Amsterdam

Thursday, July 14, 2011, 17:00pm, the exhibition Agnosia opens in CBK Zuidoost, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Agnosia is a group exhibition by Black Dutch artists. The guest curator is visual artist Charl Landvreugd.

The participating visual artists are: Brian Coutinho, Avantia Damberg, Faranú, Roos Manuel, Tiquestar Illuminat Rex, Felix de Rooij en Patrick de Vries.

With Agnosia Charl Landvreugd explores different expressions of the image language of black Dutch artists. For this group exhibition Landvreugd selected artists who were born and/or grew up in The Netherlands. He wants to show how their position as Black European is visible in their work.

Agnosia is the incapacity to recognize something which is observed with the senses. The term gets its significance with the questions which Landvreugd brings up: Are extra signs and symbolism in the image language of the artist understood by the viewer/critic? And, are they meant to be understood?

Landvreugd shows his exploration of the Black Dutch artist landscape by means of a sculpture of Felix the Rooij, drawings of Avantia Damberg and Faranú, paintings of Patrick de Vries, a mural by Tiquestar Illuminat Rex, ceramics by Brian Coutinho and a performance of Rose Manuel.
