Group exhibition ‘WAT – Working Apart Together’, at De Hal

The first vernissage of Readytex Art Gallery in 2014 just opened its doors. Starting from March the 26th, the public could enjoy the group exhibition WAT – Working Apart Together. In De Hal at de Grote Combéweg 45, where 14 artists present their most recent works of art. Though the artists each work independently, their works still contain a surprising amount of elements, turning this into a cohesive presentation. For visitors the exhibition WAT offers the exiting challenge to discover that cohesiveness and perhaps even identify it.

After the positive reactions of the public to the group exhibitions of the past two years, Readytex Art Gallery decided to work according to that same concept  for 2014. This year, instead of two large exhibitions with each time new artworks of just one artist, the gallery will organize two large exhibitions with new works of art by multiple artists. It is a concept that works quite well for the artists, the gallery and for the public as well.

The exhibition WAT offers new work by the following artists affiliated to the gallery: Dhiradj Ramsamoedj, George Struikelblok, Hanka Wolterstorff, Kenneth Flijders, Kit-Ling Tjon Pian Gi, Kurt Nahar, Reinier Asmoredjo, René Tosari, Rinaldo Klas, Roddney Tjon Poen Gie, Soeki Irodikromo, Sri Irodikromo, Sunil Puljhun and Wilgo Vijfhoven.

The exhibition provides the public with impulses other than those of a solo exhibition. In WAT Readytex Art Gallery presents a variety of art works: paintings, batik, and sculptures from wood and ceramics. Viewers can also enjoy a diversity of styles. Kurt Nahar for example, presents a selection that was inspired by his recent participation in the ‘Bienal de Pintura Mural Internos‘ in Cuba. In his new art Sunil Puljhun returns  to abstraction and color, contrary to the black and white works he’d been previously immersed in. Kit-Ling Tjon Pian Gi works from a renewed focus: she researches the Surinamese biodiversity, concentrating especially on bird species. Wilgo Vijfhoven shows transitions in his work and uses a somewhat different visual imagery. Dhiradj Ramsamoedj presents research on canvas, which provides insights into a project that he will soon develop into a series of outdoor, public sculptures.  George Struikelblok gives an exciting new twist to his work and with that offers a glimpse into what is to come at a larger presentation next year.

Readytex Art Gallery and her partner artists invite the public to visit the exhibition WAT – Working Apart Together.  Everyone is welcome in De Hal from Wednesday the 26th until Sunday the 30th of March from 19:00 – 21:00 hrs.
