Wo 14 januari presentatie van YUNRUBIN’s ‘Echo’ in M4gastatelier.

Prior 6-9PM: Weiner Wall Gracia Khouw, XXXL, Jochen MühlenbrinkASCHE’(Gerhard Hofland):

Ingang: Gerhard Hofland, Bilderdijkstraat 165-C 


“Echo” aligns YUNRUBIN’s notion of ground as existential subject with the pictorial language of letters. Letters occupy an undefined surface, looming in space and shifting between planes. The show explores abstract forms that circulate impressions while hinting at unspecific moments of language. YUNRUBIN is an art duo consisting of Jonas Rubin (DK) and Joanne Pang Rui Yun (SG).

Their focus is on materiality, place and structure within a sensorial and lyrical environment of experiencing things in space. They are current AIR in M4gastatelier till February 1th 2015.

Weiner Wall – a Series of Murals in Tetterode/M4gastatelier

Gracia Khouw, XXXL, 2014

18.00 – 21.00 hrs Entrance Bilderdijkstraat 165-C, Amsterdam (NL)

In her paintings and graphic works Gracia Khouw (1967) emphasizes the visual aspect of language: form, content, sign, tone, melody and rhythm. In her compositions she uses strict planning principles such as symmetry and lattice form, image rhyme or fragmentations. She strips the written word of its immediate meaning and replaces it with a new interpretation. For XXXL, her wallpainting at Weiner Wall, the letters of the word TOETERNIETOE are tilted, flipped and turned upside down. The result is “playful and musical; as a graphic composition to be interpreted as sound (…) “ Viewing her paintings, we realize at once that language is here something to be seen rather than read.” (Alex de Vries)
