JUNE: PIET LANGEVELD & GERDA POSTMA

This June we celebrate a Subbacultcha! first. We’ll host two artists-in-residence: visual artist Piet Langeveld and interdisciplinary fashion designer Gerda Postma will creatively terrorise our basement with their project The Future Issue – Residency. 

 

During this time they will examine the relationship between technological developments and the human need for tools, working towards a series of tangible and intangible objects, in both physical and digital form.

 

Check the programme and drop by to see the artists in action. We are opened from Tuesday till Friday from 15.00 - 18.00.

 
 

This project is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts).

APRIL: HELEEN PEETERS & MASAYO MATSUDA

 

This April we present the collaborative efforts of conceptual artists Heleen Peeters (b. Belgium, 1988) and Masayo Matsuda (b. Japan, 1980) in our gallery space. Peeters and Matsuda visually explore the interconnected themes of identity and existence. Central to their practice are the concepts of time, traces and memory.  

 

Both artists use photography as creative starting point but do not limit themselves within the boundaries of the medium. They subvert the central dominance of the camera by stripping down the medium to its fundamental essentials, and expose it an instrument to capture colour, light and form; a tool to help harness everything that is ephemeral.

 

The exhibition The Atlas Of Peter Schlemihl shows the pair’s extensive project based on an 1814 story by Albert von Chamisso. His Peter Schlemihl’s Miraculous Story was written as a cautionary tale for children and tells of the adventures of the man who sold his shadow to the devil. The story is told through multiple series of photographs in which the artists explore different themes of the tale through complementing variations of the multi-facetted medium.

 

The exhibition opening is on April 4, from 17.30 till 21.00 pm. There will be a special guest to play some music, and we will provide some lovely foods. Beer will be bestowed upon us by Warsteiner. The opening is RSVP only. Want to join? Please send us an e-mail.

MARCH: BORIS DE BEIJER

 

We’re back this March with an exhibition by artist Boris de Beijer (1986). He shows his beautiful and colourful patterned objects in our basement gallery. He took the opportunity of this exhibition to create new pieces and take important new steps in his work.  

 

De Beijer, who graduated as a jewellery designer, slowly developed a more autonomous visual language by creating works that are hard to categorize within both the ‘autonomous’ as well as the ‘applied’ disciplines. With his self-made materials he creates surreal shapes and designs. The exhibition is part of de Beijer’s discovery of the value and meaning of his newly created, surprisingly futuristic objects.

 

The exhibition opening is on March 7, from 17.30 till 21.00 pm. We have invited special guests to play some music, and an equally special guest to make some lovely stew. Beer will be lavishly provided by Warsteiner. The opening is RSVP only. Want to join? Please send us an e-mail.

DECEMBER: GERDA POSTMA

 

This December, fashion designer and multidisciplinary artist Gerda Postma is back in our exhibition space! Postma had an exhibition during the Summer of 2012, but now she's back with her newest work. 

 

The installation ‘Holon' us the latest ‘product’ of Gerda’s ongoing engagement with Walter Benjamin’s theory about the artwork in the age of its technological reproducibility. The installation evokes illusions by showing the various relations between three-dimensional shapes and their two-dimensional reproductions.

 

The opening will be on December 6, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. There will be music by Michiel Klein (Mike Koldin / Sweat Tongue) who worked with Gerda on various occasions, providing her work with fitting soundtracks. There will be some spicy foods and beer will be abundantly provided by Warsteiner. RSVP only. Wanna come? Please send us an e-mail.

NOVEMBER: DANIELA DJUKIC

 

In November the Subbacultcha! gallery will host an exhibition for German/Serbian artist Daniela Djukic (1984) about the no-longer-a-planet Pluto. Her exhibition has been in the Rietveld Academy storage room catching dust for a while now, so we figured it's about time we rediscover her photographic discovering of the rejected planet. 

 

When the International Astronomic Union reconsidered the definition of planets, Pluto was reclassified to a new category of "dwarf planets". As far as one can feel empathy for non-living things, Daniela Djukic felt a kind of compassion for the planet and decided to further investigate the rocky ice ball. Her exhibition (134340) Pluto is a combination of actual scientific, pseudo-scientific and interpretive images.

 

The opening will be on November 1, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. There will be a special musical guest, some nice foods, and beer will be generously provided by Warsteiner. RSVP only. Wanna come? Please send us an e-mail.

OCTOBER: WOUTER VENEMA

We host a new exhibition in the Subbacultcha! project space this October for multitalented artist Wouter Venema (1985). We know him as the artist behind the visuals of Rotterdam-based synth-drone act Mike Koldin, but his work takes many forms. 

In this exhibition Wouter shows us Tussenruimte, a series of images based on a script he wrote. The story has taken on several appearances; it started out as a series of drawings, then developed into photographs and will now also be translated into a performance. During the opening Wouter, together with Michiel Klein (Eklin, Sweat Tongue), will perform a live soundtrack to the exhibition.

The opening will be on October 11, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. There will be live music from the artist himself, some nice foods, and beer will be kindly provided by Warsteiner. RSVP only. Wanna come? Please send us an e-mail.

AUGUST: ASTRID FLORENTINUS

This August we host a new exhibition in the Subbacultcha! project space for artist and illustrator Astrid Florentinus (1987). As you might remember, back in March it was Astrid’s drawing that was featured on 'The Sound of the Dutch Underground' posters, flyers and that convenient tote bag that you now nonchalantly carry everywhere you go.

The exhibition coincides with the release of Astrid’s new booklet, Kimland. It’s a short graphic story about how she sets out with her friend to find Kim, who turns out to be even greater than they could have ever imagined. Despite the sketchy appearance of Astrid's drawings, they are actually highly detailed and every streak and line is very deliberately applied.

The booklet was printed at Knust/Extrapool, an experimental graphic workspace in Nijmegen. They make and publish booklets and art in the rough style that comes hand in hand with the risograph machines that line their workspace. It is this simple, tactile approach that perfectly compliments the raw quality of Florentinus’ drawings.

The opening will be on August 2, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. There will be some nice foods, holiday themed music by Vakantie, and beer will be provided by Warsteiner. RSVP only. Wanna come? Please send us an e-mail.

MAY/JUNE: ISOLDE WOUDSTRA

We have a new exhibition coming up at the Subbacultcha! project space. In May we host an exhibition for one of our long-time favorites, photographer Isolde Woudstra (1982).

It was about time Isolde had her own exhibition in our gallery, being featured in the Subbacultcha! magazine nearly every month. Her work often contrasts subtle surrealistic elements with the bright lit reality of a sudden flash, making seemingly serene portraits reveal an underlying darkness.

The opening will take place on May 24, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. There will be some nice food, music by Apneu and beer will be provided by Warsteiner. RSVP only. Wanna come? Please send us an e-mail.

FEBRUARY: FLEUR VAN DODEWAARD

There's a new exhibition coming up at the Subbacultcha! project space. In February we host an exhibition featuring the work of the Amsterdam-based photographer, Fleur van Dodewaard (1983).

Sculptures Économiques shows the highly conceptual semi-abstract work of Fleur, images originate from one 'mother image' that has been adapted 25 times according to a strict scheme of color and shape. Van Dodewaard is less interested in the photographic representation of reality, her images seem like studies for the abstract deduction of reality, but at the same time show autonomy and great individual strength. 

The opening will take place on February 15, from 17.30 till 21.00pm. RSVP only. Wanna come? please send us an e-mail

DECEMBER: MUSICIANS AT EKKO

In December we will be hosting our 'Musicians' exhibition in EKKO, Utrecht. The exhibition kicks off during the Le Guess Who? festival which takes place from 29 November until 2 December 2012. The exhibition features a selection of portraits and photo reportages that were published in our magazine within the past 1.5 years. Young, up-and-coming international photographers portray bands and musicians such as DIIV, The Soft Moon, Panda Bear and Grimes. The exhibition features work by Christopher Schreck, Miranda Lehman, Ye Rin Mok and Isolde Woudstra, among others.

Along with this exhibition, we made a publication paying tribute to both the photographers and the musicians we work with. Together they’ve created wonderful autonomous images that are a far cry from standard band photography and offer a sensitive, personal and unique view into today’s international alternative music scene. Check out 40 pages of portraits and photo reportages that were published in Subbacultcha! Magazine between May 2011 and May 2012 here. During the Le Guess Who Festival weekend you can pick up this publication at EKKO for free.

The opening of this exhibition will take place on Saturday December 1st 2012 . It will be combined with Le Mini Who? where we host a program at EKKO during the daytime. Entrance is free.

AUGUST: GERDA POSTMA

In August we will host a special multi disciplinary project in our exhibition space. 'Aura' - By artist Gerda Postma. Postma is an Amsterdam based artist using different media varying from projections to drawings, clothing and hair sculptures. In search of the seemingly lost link between humans and nature, Postma created an estranging installation that refers to Walter Benjamin's theory of the disappearance of 'the aura' in modern life. Hand-painted clothing, accessories and drawings are shown alongside a giant sculpture that starts 'breathing' when it's being approached. Michiel Klein, (Eklin / Mike Koldin) contributes to the project with an improvisational sound piece.

Exhibition: 'Aura' by Gerda Postma
20 August till 6 September
Every Monday till Thursday from 11:00 till 17:00

JULY: THIJS KUIJKEN

In July we have some great photography to show you. The featured artist of our July/August magazine is Thijs Kuijken, better known as I Am Oak, the skilled and sensitive songwriter who has recently released his new album Nowhere Or Tammensaari, which was recorded in the middle of Finnish nowhere.

Besides writing songs, Kuijken is also a very gifted photographer. His exhibition is called 'Woander' and can be seen as a wandering through space and time in search of an origin and a primal feeling, represented in landscapes and objects from the natural world. His wonderful, minimalist images betray the same sensitivity and stillness that can be found in his songs, radiating love for detail and nature. The strong focus on something simple and small - like a stone or a branch of leaves - in fact exposes the grandness of life in an almost philosophical way.

The opening will take place on Friday July 6 from 17:30 until 21:00 at the Subbacultcha! office. Free food and fresh Warsteiner for all. If you would like to attend the opening you can RSVP by sending an e-mail to: rsvp@subbacultcha.nl.

Halfway June Subbacultcha!'s project space will be filled with work from June's featured artists Strawdogs. Strawdogs is the alter ego of Robert Minnaard (1974) and Paul van de Werf (1975). Their autonomous work demonstrates their love for traditional printing techniques;  Stratification, surrealism, (full colour) silkscreen printing, relief printing, typography, collage and structures. They cut and paste images into abstract-realistic gems of shape and colour.

Strawdogs makes concert posters for bands from the international underground scene, for the infamous pop temple Vera in Groningen, among others. The posters are printed by hand in limited editions, there is a possibility of buying them during the exhibition. They also publish their own little silkscreen printed books and prints.

APRIL: ROBIN VAN MAAREN

There's a great exhibition coming up in April at our project space. Our featured artist this month, Robin van Maaren, has created quite a name for himself after releasing several interesting social-phenomena inspired pieces and being involved in the Global Village exhibition in Alkmaar. Since 2010, Robin has been discussing the theme of the lower class and lower middle class living in a suburban setting through his artwork. His heavily coloured compositions usually include painting, drawing, text and collages which commonly seem to have a pre-conceived message or theme. His main focus is in what role the niches and edges of society play. Robins layered work usually has an ironic or controversial notion which can be symbolic in many different ways depending on the viewer. This creates a raw feeling that goes nicely with this months uncomfortable issue. A selection of Robins work will be able to be viewed for the whole month in our project space.

The opening will take place on Thursday April 5 from 17:30 until 21:00 at the Subbacultcha office. Free food and fresh Warsteiner for all. If you would like to attend the opening you can RSVP by sending an e-mail to: rsvp@subbacultcha.nl.

Featured artist Artun Alaska Arasli (1987) was born in Turkey and currently lives and works in Amsterdam making poetic imaginary, photo's, video and sculptures. Artun recently won the Rietveld Prize with his graduation project 'I Am Hungry'. In this installation Artun combines and reinterprets existing, often iconic images, objects and words, blending them into a very personal, endearing and unique world where all original meaning is lost. A world that looks like a registration of fading memories and all emotions attached to it. A selection of Artun's new work will be on display in Subbacultcha's project space.

Artun's exhibition in Subbacultcha!'s project space contains a selection of his photography.

Martyn's illustrations appear frequently in various publications such as Subbacultcha! magazine and De Volkskrant. He also operates as an autonomous artist, producing a wide range of drawings that are often confrontational, lively, absurdistic and satirical. Martyn uses raw and realistic imagery to place his subjects in an alienating context, using references from (recent) history as well as popular culture.

To celebrate the exhibition, Subbacultcha! and Martyn F Overweel will be publishing a booklet featuring a selection of his work. The publication will be on display and for sale during the whole exhibition.

In September Subbacultcha!'s featured artist is Regina van der Kloet. At the same time she will fill Subbacultcha!'s project space this month. Photographs and installations of Regina will form an exhibition called 'Outside the box'.
In her own take on band and night life photography she challenges us to look a bit beyond the obvious and tries to persuade us to turn off our TVs, switch off our computers, head into the night and look at the world with different eyes.Her work is poetic, witty and with a full focus on the beautiful little details of everyday life - nightlife that is, in most cases.

Starting September 8. You are welcome at our office to check out the expo featuring limited edition prints and installations.

JULY: SCRMN & NOELSON

The great artwork of Anders 'Scrmn' Meisner and Mical Noelson will fill our project space in July. The exhibition also marks the launch of a 52 page art publication featuring a wild mix of drawings, collages, texts and paintings of these two artists.

Noelson (UK) and Scrmn (DK, whom you might know from his print on our Subbacultcha! t-shirts.) met each other in Amsterdam a small decade ago. They started the alternative band The Stutters with which they released several EP's. After a few years of making music it was time to make some art. They started working on canvas together and opened up a t-shirt- and art gallery at the Vijzelstraat to display their combined efforts. Now, as SCRMN is moving back to his homeland, the two multitalented lads decided to collaborate with Subbacultcha! and release a neat little art publication and launch it with a jampacked exhibition. The book, titled SCRMN vs Noelson, is a playful, sketchy and rough overview of an inspirational era and commemorates Anders and Mical's artistic alliance here in Amsterdam.

Starting 12 July. You are welcome at our office to check out the expo featuring limited edition prints, black & white paintings and video.

JUNE: KRISTY FOOM

From June 3 on there will be a new exhibition in the Subbacultcha! project space. This time by multi talent Kristy Fenton. Kristy Fenton aka Kristy Foom from Denver is a musician / artist who lives and works in Amsterdam. Fenton makes films, collages and photo's, and since 2007 she publishes art books under the name 'Drippy Bone Books'. Apart from that together with Mario Zoots and Kamran Khan she embodies the band Modern Witch. Fenton is part of 'Licker Licence', an international touring 'all-female art show' as well.

Because of her variety of talents Fenton is the perfect featured artist for our June edition of Subbacultcha! magazine: The Doom Issue. Her exhibition named SWF (named after the movie Single White Female, 1992), shows us a selection of her doomy but light and playful collages. Next to the collages you'll find her video art and some Drippy Bone Books on display.

Come over and have a look!

'SWF' will be displayed for three weeks from 7 till 24 June at our project space at the Da Costakade. Entrance is free.

The opening will take place on June 3, from 5 till 9pm. RSVP only. Wanna come? please send an e-mail to loes@subbacultcha.nl.

MAY: QIU YANG

Yes! One of our favourite photographers in years is setting up shop in our basement. The photos of Qiu Yang prove, once again, that there is a very thin line between mathematics and spirituality. They are very precise, yet not to be grasped.

Yang's work consists of extremely composed portraits and still lifes. His pictures are colorful and seem to zoom in at subtle details which wouldn't get any attention in a bigger picture. This makes his images surrealistic; he has an eye for details and knows how to present the iconic value of an object using color and contrast.

Qui Yang exhibited in Berlin and Paris and won the Rietveld price in 2007.

Come down and see for yourself!

The opening will take place on May 6, from 5 till 9pm. RSVP only. Wanna come? please send us an e-mail.

APRIL: KOEN TASELAAR

Koen Taselaar (1986) is our April artist. This Rotterdam based artist is also the featured artist in our April issue of Subbacultcha! magazine. After a few solo exhibitions in cities like Paris, Groningen, Brussels and Rotterdam, Subbacultcha! felt it was time to ask Taselaar to show his work in Amsterdam.

This month we fill our project space with Taselaars' very detailed black and white drawings which he made for a great number of imaginary bands. Taselaar creates an imaginary Rock 'n' Roll world and draws flyers, posters and cd covers for bands like The Inside Jokers, Pjetra and the Shield Cats, The Beast Burger and Bottle Hunter.

The Most characteristic features of Taselaars work are the graphic quality of his fine pen drawings and his use of typography. He combines experimental lettering with meticulously drawn backgrounds of figurative subjects associated with the band name and delicate abstract patterns.

Come over and have a look!

'WALLTUNES' will be displayed for three weeks from 12 till 29 April at our project space at the Da Costakade. Entrance is free.

MARCH: KIM BOSKE

In March Subbacultcha!'s project space is filled with work from Kim Boske (1978), photographer and artist.

Boske is fascinated by the systems which exists behind the direct surface of the visual world. She layers different elements to make another narrative and time structure emerge.

The exhibition shows a selection from Boske's series 'Decay Can Be Very Slow'. These images are recreations of old tableaus from a nature-historic museum. In the photos time stands still. There is no past and no future. Eerie and silent, yet very vivid and alive. Next to these images, Boske's short film 'Garden' will be screened. This shows us Japanese gardeners who are pruning trees in a very repetitive, precise and patient way. Out of time.

'Decay Can Be Very Slow' will be displayed for three weeks from 8 till 25 March at our project space at the Da Costakade. Entrance is free.

The opening will take place on March 4, from 5 till 9pm. RSVP only. Wanna come? please send us an e-mail.

FEBRUARY: ASHKAN HONARVAR

After a successful first exhibition in January, it is now time for great follow-up. In February we host the exhibition 'Ex Vivo', featuring the work of Utrecht-based collage artist and painter Ashkan Honarvar.

Ex Vivo shows us a selection from Honarvar's series 'La Grande Bouffe', 'Ubakagi' and ' Lines', consisting of detailed black ink illustrations as well as collages, deeply inspired by 'the human body'. With his work Honarvar shows us undeniable and unavoidable beauty by accepting the darker sides of the human body.

Ex Vivo will be displayed for three weeks from 8 till 25 February at our project space at the Da Costakade. Entrance is free.
The opening will take place on February 4, from 5 till 9pm. RSVP only. Wanna come? please send us an e-mail.

JANUARY: IRENE O'CALLAGHAN

The very first exhibition in our project space features work from an Amsterdam based photographer, Irene O'Callaghan (22). The exhibition shows us the unexpected abstract beauty of failed test prints and color proofs from a photolab. Irene saved these 'misprints' from the dustbin and collected them in a 100 page booklet titled 'Selected Material From a Photographic Laboratory'. The exhibition at the Subbacultcha! project space marks the launch of the book, which is published by Subbacultcha!. 

The opening of the three week exhibition will take place on January 7, 2011. RSVP only, send us an e-mail
