Eclectic Art Fair

New name for a familiar concept; stubborn, recalcitrant, high-quality and diverse. Formally know as Art in Redlight set up in 2005 by Simone Swildens with the aim of creating an annual, high quality art event in Amsterdam. Started in the Oude Kerk and with the 10-year anniversary at the historic Beurs van Berlage in 2014. “This Art Fair offers a platform for talented artists to show and sell their works – with or without gallery”. Says Kris van der Hart who has taking care of the marketing and who together with the selection committee scouted for the fair.

Gallery Fontana one of our favourite attending galleries, presented the stunning work of Simone Hoang called ‘Anachronism’ and the intriguing photographs of Mathias Valewind. The photograph of Hoang is made with a process where the black and white negatives are developed in boiling water with a astonishing effect, in this process the photo turns into a warm and ever so exiting shades of blue.

The photo’s by Mathias are inspired by his work as salesman with his staying in numerous hotels all around the globe. After a while is was realing some things, they all are the same in lay out and designed or decorated to feel at home, but after 3 days you realise that it isn’t your home.. its grey and some how ended up at the wrong end of the city. Looking out of your window you understand there is nothing but curtens to look at. + or curtens that are there to keep you from looking outside. And Mathias started photographing all windows and details of the room. The whole concept is intriging and different.
