Remy Jungerman: Based In Solo Exhibition at Robert Henry Contemporary
Art Omi: Artists
Remy Jungerman, 2013, Suriname / The Netherlands
Based In, a solo exhibition of new sculpture and pantings by Remy Jungerman, a Dutch artist of Surinamese descent, explores aspects of the spiritual culture from his country of origin and the visual culture of his adoptive homeland. Jungerman intertwines these cultural signs and symbols into three-dimensional constructions using wood, cotton fabric, kaolin, nails and paint and two-dimensional compositions in cotton fabric, kaolin and paint. This exhibition will feature two wall constructions and two new paintings. Jungerman states, “My research and work focuses on finding the running thread that links together the cultural esthetics of three continents: Africa, Europe and the Americas.” The exhibition was organized in collaboration with independent curator Charlotta Kotik.
Based In is on view October 26 - December 21, 2018 at Robert Henry Contemporary 56 Bogart St. Brooklyn, NY.
