ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
The ideal candidate is student in cultural sector with a demonstrable understanding of art, for example due to previous research, studies or work.

Come see this exhibition with exquisite photographic techniques that stem back to the 19th century.

📍 We are open today between 13-18 hrs
AROUND THE POLAR CIRCLE
Witho Worms, Jens Knigge

Presented carbon prints, made by Witho Worms in his studio, consist of 3 coatings with mate Bone Black pigment and shiny Japanese Sumi ink. Unique technique that, due to its layers, shows the most subtle aspects of black.

Jens Knigge’s platinum-palladium prints resemble the most refined pencil drawings. This photographic process is known for its mid-tone grays that are unobtainable in silver prints.

📰 🙌 Today at @hetparool! A wonderful review of @withoworms and @knigge_photography’s exhibition at our gallery titled Around the polar circle mountain 🏔 ⛰

“ in their whisper photography, the Arctic landscape becomes slightly different than in a documentary photo. In Knigge’s work, it takes on something picturesque, refined and almost abstract. 

With Worms, the crop creates a certain distance between the viewer and the subject, as if you were looking through a letterbox from the inside out. Perhaps that is his imagination of the realisation that the wilderness always remains outside of man. 

Or that by our unstoppable need to capture it in images, we irrevocably make it a culture.”

Thanks so much @edo.dijksterhuis for your words

Witho Worms, Jens Knigge

🥂Festive opening this Saturday🥂

Witho Worms and Jens Knigge make photographic prints of outstanding quality.

Worms handcrafts 3-layered carbon prints with matt Bone Black pigment and Japanese Sumi ink. In his images you can see blacks in all their variations.

Knigge works with platinum-palladium technique. It allows him to show all the subtleties of white and grey that were captured by his camera – photographed in winter in Scandinavia with barely any daylight.

These are photographs of Mark van den Brink from his Minox Files, shot with a miniature spy camera.

He manages to capture what he sees just the way he likes to see it himself, with an ironic undertone.

Once developed and hand-printed, his photographs become frottages, frictions with light.

The photos printed by him have a balanced white border and are never larger than the size of a postcard.

Jens Knigge lives and works in Berlin. For the upcoming exhibition ‘Around the polar circle’ he was invited by Witho Worms.

Both photographers work with almost the same tools, large format cameras, 19th century printing techniques and handcrafted prints.

Both celebrate the photographic print, from the lightest greys to the deepest blacks. They invite you on the same journey.

Tanja Engelberts — “I like discovering places and seeing how certain places function. I capture my fascinations through photography and occasionally through film. In my studio, these places and spaces come together, as I am trying to recall what these places mean, what they consist of." In her work, Dutch photographer Tanja Engelberts explores the duality between the romantic landscape and its economic reality in today's world. In this context, she captured rural Wyoming, as well as the endless North Sea. In her practice, she delves deeper into the history and consequences of extracting fossil fuels from the landscape. The name of this series, '500 meters afar’, refers to the nautical law that prohibits ships from sailing closer than 500 meters from a drilling or production platform. It also stands for the fact that as outsiders, we never reach these platforms. The harsh conditions at sea turn the offshore industry almost into the symbol (icon) of man overcoming nature. Artificial cities of concrete and metal in a seemingly empty sea. They leave a lot to the imagination. But in recent years, many companies have ceased operations, and Engelberts documents a landscape that is demolished and no longer there. During Art Rotterdam, her work was shown in the booth of Galerie Caroline O’Breen. Explore more work from the booth on GalleryViewer: www.galleryviewer.com/en/event/13/exhibition/2233/608.
Satijn Panyigay — “When art is not there, what do you then see? When you’re not distracted by the art? You only see the traces of what was there before, and your imagination fills in the rest - the stories, the happenings, and thus the photos invite you to go inward.” Until 5 March, @Galerie Caroline O’Breen in Amsterdam is programming a solo exhibition with work by Satijn Panyigay. It shows her latest additions to the series "Twilight Zone", in which the photographer captures empty, seemingly abandoned museum spaces. She shows us that the museum is more than a series of white backdrops. How do the spaces in which we look at art influence the ways in which we experience art? In the exhibition at Galerie Caroline O'Breen, Panyigay invites us to look at the characteristic and recognisable empty spaces of the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo (the Netherlands). She was allowed to capture the museum in a period between two exhibitions. The museum will turn 84 years old in July, so the walls breathe a certain history. Panyigay shows us a side of the museum that few people have seen: with bare walls that almost radiate something fragile, because you know they shouldn't be empty. That creates a certain tension, because what is a museum without art, visitors and by extension: authority? Panyigay previously captured Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam, just before the museum closed its doors for a long-term renovation. As in her other work, she proficiently plays with light and darkness, with a great sense of melancholy. The background of the museum suddenly becomes the foreground. Panyigay states that she is looking for a certain "presence" in the apparent emptiness, but what exactly is that presence, that essence, without the art? Panyigay invites you to offer your own interpretation.
Here is a great review on Anne Geene's work published in FD Persoonlijk Magazine (Dutch only). The artist has currently an exhibition on view at Kröller-Müller Museum and at Galerie Caroline O’Breen and her work is the subject of a new publication published by De Hef and distributed by us.

ON SHOW DURING UNSEEN — Anastasia Samoylova: "I found myself in this constructed landscape sublime tableau, because [Miami] is so dependent on its own image and presentation. There are so many issues that are concealed by utopian imagery. The incessant promotion of travel and the city as a desirable destination mixed with the images used to promote real estate sales are the two driving forces behind Miami’s economy. You see all these billboards covering up rusting facades, and when you peek through them you see the dug out foundations, filled with water.” Expectations are that the city of Miami (with nearly 22 million inhabitants) will have to have to be completely evacuated by 2060, due to the rapid rise of the water levels. Nevertheless, new plans are currently being made for 32 residential towers on the beach. Russian-American photographer Anastasia Samoylova captured the Floridian city in a unique way, focusing on certain traces, hints of what awaits the residents of the city. Yet the end result is surprisingly beautiful. When Samoylova moved to Miami in 2016, the city experienced its hottest summer on record. In her work, the photographer contrasts the paradise-like elements of the tropical city — from the warm pastel tones to the dreamy seascapes — with the water damage and a worrying lack of secure foundations. During Unseen (17-19 September) you can see Samoylova's work in the booth of Galerie Caroline O’Breen.
From Thursday July 15, Galerie Caroline O’Breen will present: Tanja Engelberts — Future Maps for Hollow Places Antoinette Nausikaä —A River Runs Through Me In this duo-presentation both artists research the intersection between man and nature. #rijksakademie resident Tanja Engelberts investigates the duality between the romantic landscape and its economic reality in today’s world, and how this landscape is being exhausted and robbed of its natural resources. Alum Antoinette Nausicaä’s research revolves around places where nature and urbanism intertwine. By using different media she observes and analyzes the interconnectedness within a certain environment and how we experience ourselves as part of the larger whole. The works are on view until August 28, more information on https://carolineobreen.com

[Exposition] « Pour moi, ces montagnes sont des monuments qui se dressent devant nous, devenant peu à peu le portrait de mon père qui, d’une certaine manière, ne disparaîtrait jamais ».

ONLINE STUDIO VISIT: SATIJN PANYIGAY // Heb je de allereerste editie van Young Collectors Festival Utrecht gisteren gemist? Don’t worry, we got you: speciaal voor jou hebben we een miniserie opgenomen waarin je een online inkijkje krijgt in een kunstenaarsatelier. First up: Satijn Panyigay! PS de volgende editie van het festival vindt plaats op 28 augustus, ben jij er ook bij? Satijn: "Het maakt me verdrietig dat sommige mensen hun verdriet met zich meedragen, zonder dat ze het kunnen delen met andere mensen. Met mijn werk wil ik laten zien dat je niet de enige bent met die gevoelens. Ik hoop dat het een beetje troost biedt. Een moment van verstilling in drukke levens, waarin mensen burn-outs krijgen omdat ze teveel werken. Ik denk dat het leven meer te bieden heeft dan dat." TIP: Tijdens Art Rotterdam 2021 kun je haar werk bekijken in de booth van Galerie Caroline O’Breen. 🎥: FleurFilmt
