Raider 2023

RAIDER | First Contact
11 may – 26 aug

Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents the first solo exhibition by the 21-year-old Dutch creator RAIDER from 11 May until 26 August 2023. The exhibition First Contact shows a wide and colourful selection of sculptures, silkscreen prints, digital artworks, neon designs, and wall objects. RAIDER transforms the two floors of the gallery into an exciting art experience, introducing the character Scoop.

RAIDER represents a new, young generation of contemporary artists. With a great passion for art, his iconic sculptures of the fictional character Scoop have gained attention from gallery owners and art collectors around the world since 2020. The creator experiments with all available techniques and materials in a traditional way.

The new and sparkling work of RAIDER has its own unique signature. It is fresh, pure, and colourful. For the design of figure Scoop, spheres are used as primal elements, referring to the science of discovering extraterrestrial life forms. The storyteller draws inspiration from film, animation, music, and travel.  

Scoop is from another planet and is now discovering our world and its inhabitants. Scoop is friendly, curious, and reflects on human behaviour with a childlike innocence. The Scoop sculptures are made of resin, and are available as Limited Editions in a variety of colours and sizes, from small (10 cm) to monumental (180 cm). Bronze is also used by the creator. Each sculpture is completely handcrafted and painted.

RAIDER (2002) lives and works in Amsterdam. He studied Creative Design in Utrecht. The creator’s autonomous work has been presented at art fairs such as Art Miami, Art Karlsruhe, KunstRAI in Amsterdam, and Affordable Art Fair in Amsterdam, London, and New York. After a pop-up store presentation during the Milan Design Week 2023, his first solo exhibition in the Netherlands is scheduled at Wanrooij Gallery.

Viktor Freso

VIKTOR FRESO
28 may – 20 aug

Frešo lives and works in Czechoslovakia and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and in Prague at the Academy of Fine Arts. His work and overall approach to art is rather untypical but at the same time they reflect the situation in the society and culture. The artist creates sophisticated concepts and projects presenting them as seemingly simple closed “Pieces of art”. He is often critical in his works and expresses his contempt of the art scene itself and its processes but with a light, humorous and playful undertone.

He prefers short interval between action and reaction and conditions of quick recognition of relations between the expressing “me“ and the indication “he”. Another very typical aspect is that he publicly presents his radical and often despising opinions of the society and art scene which might irritate and provoke a discussion about what is and what is not acceptable as contemporary art or just a self-centered affect of the artist.

The Dark Dolls House

UNEXPECTED | Curated By Wanrooij Gallery
Davy & Kristin McGuire
04.10.2019 – 30.11.2019

“The Dark Dolls House”

“From fairies trapped in jam jars to seductresses kept in dolls-houses to pole dancers hijacking religious iconography, Davy and Kristin McGuire play with conflicted ideas of female victim-hood versus female agency, the innocent aspirations of childhood versus the tainted reality of adulthood, and the sacred versus the sacrilegious. The pieces ask the audience to wonder whether they should gaze in reverence or shame or allow for an all together more nuanced and unresolved perspective.”

Unexpected Curated by Wanrooij Gallery is located in the famous gallery street in Amsterdam (Spiegelgracht 20), and is a space for experimentation from the main Wanrooij Gallery at the KNSM-laan in Amsterdam. It is a platform for artists from the Netherlands and abroad. It welcomes exceptional, emerging artists, who distinguish themselves through their renewing and outspoken visual language in contemporary art. At Unexpected by Wanrooij the audience have the opportunity to get an insight on the inspirations and studio situation of the artists by showing their works next to objects from their studio.

Opening

Old Wood – Diederick Kraaijeveld

Diederick Kraaijeveld (Oudhout/Oldwood, The Netherlands, 1963) constructs truly unique photo-realistic collages from salvaged wood. His images are icons plucked from the contemporary Diaspora: Chuck Taylor Converses, a Magnum .44, a roll of dollar bills, a pack of cigarettes, a VW van. The works are beautifully created from genuine, coloured vintage wood that the artist himself collects during traveling the globe: from abandoned buildings in the Mojave Desert to 16th century Dutch mansion floors. A single work can require over a hundred pieces of different wood. This process is as vital and impactful as the actual assemblage of the found materials. Though the pieces sometimes burst with colour, Kraaijeveld doesn’t use a drop of paint himself. He chooses, instead, to preserve the original colour and hue, allowing the individual layers to form their own unique combinations.

In Unexpected by Wanrooij Kraaijeveld shows his works, pieces of inspiration and the machine he works with. The videos in the gallery show his travels, search for material and the constructing of his works, also to see on his website; oudhout.com

Exhibition Rijksmuseum

Diederick Kraaijeveld is part of the big summer exhibition Long Live Rembrandt in The Rijksmuseum that is located a 10-minute walk from the Unexpected by Wanrooij Gallery with a portrait of Rembrandt.

The exhibition runs throughout the summer until 15.09.2019.

Evolution – Christian Voigt

WANROOIJ GALLERIJ
Christian Voigt
June 6th – August 24th 2019

EVOLUTION

Wanrooij Gallery in Amsterdam presents from 6 June until 24 August 2019 an exhibition of German photographer Christian Voigt. For his new series Evolution the fine art photographer has portrayed prehistoric skeletons against a black backdrop. Huge dinosaurs, three-dimensional, almost alive. Fantasy fiction becomes reality. The gallery shows an intriguing selection of large-format photographs.

Christian Voigt has received international recognition for his monumental, hyper-realistic landscape and architectural photography, in particular interiors of museums and libraries. His life motive is the search for beauty, underpinned by perfectionism. With Evolution, the artist has radically expanded both his visual vocabulary and his portfolio of photographic techniques. The idea for the new series came to him in 2017 when he was photographing the immense skeleton of a blue whale hanging in the Natural History Museum in London.

The artist wants his Evolution series to be regarded more as objects than as images, captured under almost laboratory-like conditions. The authentic photographs of dinosaurs have been taken with large-format analogue cameras in natural history museums in Berlin, Denkendorf, Frankfurt am Main and London. Specially conceived frames are integral parts of the very detailed pictures of delicate skeletons, with hyper-ideal lighting and uncannily crisp contours of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops Duo.

Christian Voigt (Munich, 1961) lives in Hamburg and the south of France. He was born into a family of publishers and photographers. Voigt is one of Germany’s most successful photographic artists. The iconic, autonomous work of the artist has been presented at more than 100 exhibitions in mainly Europe and the USA. His panoramic, strictly limited edition pictures are in demand amongst private collectors worldwide.

Masters of LXRY 2018

MASTERS OF LXRY 2018
EXHIBITION
Decemeber 6-10 | 2018

Masters of LXRY brengt dit jaar van 6 t/m 10 december de Genius Edition naar de Amsterdamse RAI. Het is de grootste editie ooit, waar op meer dan 42.500 vierkante meter (!) ‘the best of the best’ wordt getoond dankzij de genieën van 2018: uitblinkers, merken en bedrijven die opvallen in hun vakgebied. Dit jaar staat Masters of LXRY in het teken van innovatie en vernieuwende, unieke trends en ontwerpen. De zeventiende editie is daarmee nog internationaler en eigentijdser van opzet dan ooit tevoren.

Op Masters of LXRY bundelen Wanrooij Gallery, kunstenares Alisa Lim A Po en kunsthandelaar Sander Bijl dit jaar de krachten. De collectie die zij gezamenlijk tonen in hun House of Art – die op prachtige wijze wordt vormgegeven door de succesvolle interieurontwerpster Mariska Jagt – , is een (internationale) mix van oude meesters en hedendaagse kunstenaars.
