Bunny Lights

With its mystery, history, nature and symbolism, the native rabbit is the perfect bearer for the centuries-long intertwining of man and beast in Heemskerk in the Netherlands. She symbolizes the continuity of existence. It is a landmark in the scenery and a beacon of the existence of man and animal i...

The commemmoration of politcal opponents murdered in cold blood in the night of december 8th 1982. The court case against the prime suspect is ongoing. Families of the victims had to wait 3 decades to have their day in court. An open wound that runs through the Surinames society.
The former President Desi Bouterse had tempted to install a formal pardon in this case designed to circumvent his alledged responsability.

@ Gallery Kunst_kan (Art Can ) I met up with 2 Surinamese artists Brian Coutinho amd Isan Corinde. During their latest exhibition I had the chance to exchange about their work. We discussed in depth how they relate to the visual space of their ancestry. Both of them in their own way tap into the possibility of a new era where we acknowledge our commonality and reconnect and maybe even reconcile the war against black people. Seeking to uncover if there is a way to overcome the pain and suffering of generations by recognising the origin of all of humanity.

Is it possible to think outside of the vortex The Black Lives Matter movement has taken momentum. Being true to their beliefs and guiding us throught their thoughts on the proces of making work that covers new ground as well as the most archetypal form known to man.

A form that relates to ancient vertility sculptures. Brian explains how he accepted that this is what he needed to make. Describing his search for his own language in writing on the skin of his sculpture that consists of ceramics.

Isan treats his work as an exploration of his childhood experience translated letters into moving bodies as reading Dutch the mandatory language took away his voice. He created his own alphabet of dancing stick figures.

The work is a song about his grandmother and her grandchildren and speaks volumes about the community they are part of. A monument in itself.

To be continued.

Open Artspace will be represented during the 2019 Venice Biennial. Please stay tuned for updates about our participation which is called " Common Ground, the river of voices "

Our team will co-write a manifesto which will cover The strategies and politics of art of an art practice that not only will archive black LGBTQIA identity and community but make history of art visible from a black LGBTQIA perspective. Anyone from our community is invited to contribute and send in proposals which will provide art strategies in any discipline. Especially performative and social interventions are wanted. We call upon members of the black LGBTQIA community worldwide to let their voice be heard and their work be seen.

Our manifesto will be part of a collaborative platform where we will discuss and exchange on these practices and organise meetings and artist residencies that are linked to the related topics.

faithfully yours,

Dominique Almeida

21/05/2018

I had to quit my favorite sport of running since my accident. It took me the best part of a year to regain full walking ability. Still I have to be careful as my knees have become fragile.

Running taught me how to extend my limits and gave me a remedy to cope with my emotions, when stressed or troubled. Now instead I dance and lift weights. Whenever I see people run long distances like I used to, I get a sting of sad and a sense of being happy at the same time. I remember how I first started to love the flying sensation and the rush when passing the limits of my own reserves and then reaching into acceleration as I approached the finish line of the tracks. I feel the afterburn and the glow of completing the best race I possibly could have ran. When I see others do this, its hard. Still I am grateful glad I can walk again and will embrace my new activities with as much passion as I did running these past years.

I found out that my ancestors were runners back in West Africa during the centuries before they were captured and sold as slaves.
They ran as part of initiation rites to capture a prey. To prove they were worthy members of the tribe.

They ran for survival and hunted for their tribe. Whenever I face adversity or have a heavy task to execute I feel they help me keep on going.
I chose this image by artist in residence Ogutu Muraya " I always feel like running "

SA artists exhibit their work in U.S. - SABC News - Breaking news, special reports, world, business, sport coverage of all South African current events. Africa's news leader.

.fyi,

This show is an ongoing life/art project documenting the fight against hate crime and discrimination of members of the LGBTIQ community. The group has extended their mission in countries all over the world and is sharing their struggle and victories. The group working on Pride and Loss create a bond with communities and allies and educates young talented artists making sure their stories are part of herstory. Being present and visible is key to this process. It also means that breaking the silence on hate crime and violence LGBTIQ comes with a price. They prove above and beyond that such an act changes the course of events by creating awareness. The truth exposes hypocrisy in society and the shame that is cast upon LGBTiQ people. Pride and Loss showing them as proud beings bravely standing up for who they are. They lead and share their stories of pain and loss and healing. Committed to inhabiting the world wholy and fully in light of the losses that they suffered. Making a memorial of the truth surrounding rape and killing that have been denied. Through mourning they are a powerful manifestation of the meaning of queer life.

A group of South African photographers and visual artists is showcasing its work in the United States.

What was named "The Dutch policing actions" was actually a bloody battle to oppress the Indonesians still almost 75 years later there is no acknowledgement of the brutal colonial warcrimes against them So much so that the Dutch Indonesians who stayed were shunned by the Indonesians.

#tbt Made this drawing in 2001 as a part of a daily journal. I never stopped since, calling it my visual poems. They first appear and flow into a world of their own. This one carries the tender vulnerability and relentless need to fight for self preservation.
A fight that is both destructive but native to the human condition. It's also the resistance to the oppression of constant otherness from any angle and any tribe. Not belonging and still being part of the shared space both black and white people inhabit in society.
I had no idea where to stand but to stand up was the only way. I have stood out and out there it was alone and painful at once. But it is the only place I have and draw clarity from.

Being aware of time, that we spend.

Funny how we just go and take for granted what is given to us and are irritated about things

I spoke a friend last night she has a health scare that will change everything. But hope
remains

Go and love, be present

I have come a long way and am grateful and blessed.

short version of a long story

Studio CK9 ‘s first Open Artspace was held in 2003 during the Rijksacademie Open. Since then we operated as a transformative base for collaboration including among others the artists/writers : Zanele Muholi, Christophe Cornubert, Rebecca Walker, Lucy Nooren, Leslie Labowitz and Tobaron Waxman.

2003 : Rijksacademie; Open Artspace with Pablo Ziccarello, Arjan van Helmond, Irene Kopelman Praneet Soi and Dominique Almeida. Questioning the narrative of identity (which has proven to be the transformational motif of the decade) presented at the Open. The focus of the exchange dealt with the concept of displacement, diaspora and identity.

This image needs to be framed, we want to find out who the artist is and the name of the model as well as when this was taken. Anyone who can provide this information. Thank you for taking an interest.
