In Transfer; Gallery Nono, The Hague

Jelle Van Den Heede

Gallery Nono presently introduces four artists: Jelle Van Den Heede (1978) and Camille Truyffaut (1993) from Belgium, and Kira Fröse (1992) and Darja Eßer from Germany.

All four construct their works with great care, compelled to do so by the materials they use.

That results in precious objects that tell stories or open perspectives not just by how they look like externally, but also by the way they are made.

Craftsmanship in the sense of a careful dialogue with the physical material and the spiritual aspects it conveys, seems to be becoming the hallmark of works shown by Nono Gallery as it recently got a place of its own in town (alternating with SinArts Gallery).

Showing this kind of art is an invitation to viewers to take their time not just to reflect about the content of the works, but also about how they were made and thought out and in that way got their content.

Visitors may reflect about the actual monumentality of the otherwise small and nuanced collages by Van Den Heede, or about the deceitfulness  of the materials in Fröse’s absurdist objects.

Darja Eßer

They may wonder about the use of the extremely lightweight Japanese tissue in Eßer’s works, almost weightless like the thoughts you carry while walking around in this world; or – almost the other way round – about the use of aquatint in Truyffaut’s works in which short and weightless observations of less than an instant seem to materialize as powerful abstract images.

Opening of a new space. Gallery Nono & SinArts Gallery, The Hague

The new cultural season has been opened last weekend in different venues in The Hague and especially at Boekhorststraat, where two galleries opened a new shared space.

Gallery Nono mainly existed on line until now and SinArts Gallery had a temporary space at Korte Vijverberg (as regular readers of Villa Next Door may know).

They now settled down in this lively street in the city centre, in the same street where 1646 and Page Not Found are.

Nono and SinArts will alternate their exhibitions but last Sunday they opened with a shared presentation.

Zhu Hong, SinArts Gallery

It is a group show with works by some nineteen artists in a space that is both small and spacious.

Choi Wong, SinArts Gallery

The two wide and welcoming, early twentieth century shop windows will guarantee a very public view of the exhibited art that will hopefully intrigue the passers-by.

Personally i’m very much looking forward to the exhibitions that will follow and Villa Next Door wishes both galleries a happy and inspiring future in their new place!
