Pere Llobera at Museum Voorlinden - Pere Llobera wins Sacha Penning 2019 award

We congratulate Spanish artist Pere Llobera (1970) on winning the Sacha Tanja Penning 2019 award on Saturday the 16th of February.

The Sacha Penning Award is a yearly recurrent honour to an artist, person or institution who highly contributes to the figurative arts in The Netherlands. The winner of the award receives a prize of 10.000 Euro.

The Jury awarded this years prize to Pere Llobera in honour of his whole oeuvre. Pere Llobera is trained as a classical painter in Barcelona, where he lives and works. At first glance, Pere Llobera's paintings appear to be realistic depictions, almost like snapshots. But in reality they are collages in which he blends facts and fiction, often with a trace of absurdity.

To show Pere Lbobera unique and fascinating view of the world, Museum Voorlinden presents works from 2007 till more recent paintings in the cabinets of the museum from February 16 onwards.

Pieter Laurens Mol at Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

We are delighted that Pieter Laurens Mol is currently exhibiting at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

This intimate presentation shows various works by artist Pieter Laurens Mol (Breda, 1946) from the period 1970 – 2000. The works - photographs, installation and drawings - are related to Mol's own memories of Vincent van Gogh and the province of Brabant, the region from which both men originate.

For the presentation on the third floor of the museum, the artist has selected the installation Lament Superior, 1991 from collection Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, two large photo works Winter over Spring (Forest Zone), 1994 from the collection of Ludmila Danon, Brussels, a smaller painting titled Coucher de Soleil, 1987, private collection, The Hague, and a group of early drawings from 1968-1975.  Elsewhere in the museum is installed, Vincent, Painter of the Free Range, 1992. It is the first time that these works have been brought together in this manner.

This exhibition is part of a series of presentations of modern and contemporary art at the Van Gogh Museum showing how later generation artists have been inspired by van Gogh, and follows recent presentations of works by John Chamberlain, Francis Bacon, Edvard Munch, Frank Auerbach, Willem de Kooning, Zeng Fanzhi, Peter Doig and expressionist paintings from the Merzbacher collection.

Siobhán Hapaska at John Hansard Gallery

John Hansard Gallery presents a solo exhibition by Siobhan Hapaska's (b.1963). This exhibition highlights new a recent sculptural works including: 'Love' (2016), 'Snake and Apple', 'Earthed', and 'Candlewick' (all 2018). 

Across the sculptures on display, Hapaska introduces a diverse array of materials, including fibreglass, concrete cloth, artificial snakeskin, aluminium, oak, charcoal powder, wax and brass. Each loaded with history and multiple readings, these materials are combined in ways that are surprising: biomorphic forms in concrete cloth reach towards one another, as if trying to touch; glossy fibreglass apples are constricted by snakeskin-veneered metal channels; a sanctuary lamp floods the room with purple light, rotating in a perpetual state of crisis.

The ways in which Hapaska's sculptural forms interact or connect can give her work a powerful sense of duality - we often see two forms of conflict, distress, desire or compassion. At times, her sculptures touch upon different belief systems, ideologies or faiths, but never in a way that is ultimately resolved or redeemed. Rather, we are given an insight into the combustibility of the human condition, with all its flaws and contradictions; tenderness and destructiveness.

This exhibition is made possible with support from Culture Ireland as part of their GB18 programme.
