RCE + EST: when concrete, minimal and media art come together
EST art foundation
Papegaaisbolwerk 20
2312 LW  Leiden

August 26 – October 15, 2023
Hours: Fri-Sun, 1–5 pm and by appointment
Opening: August 26, 3–5 pm, by Sylvia van Schaik (RCE)

RCE + EST is the result of a collaboration between the Cultural Heritage Agency (RCE) and EST art foundation. Two collections are merged within this exhibition and engage in dialogue with each other. Three art movements are being observed through the same lens: art for art’s sake. All artworks only refer to themselves. No complex themes or narratives, what you see is what you get.

The artworks from the RCE and EST collections are spread through the exhibition space and illustrate how fluid the three central art movements are. Even though the artworks are the result of different processes, they share a similar non-referential message.

The exhibition includes works from the following artists from the RCE collection: Arie Berkulin, Bob Bonies, Toni Burgering†, Maria Hees, Jan van Munster, Tomas Rajlich, Bert Schutter, Peter Struycken, herman de vries, Mirja de Vries and Fred Wessels†.

EST is represented by: Iemke van Dijk, Jasper van der Graaf, José Heerkens, Henriëtte van ’t Hoog, Jan Maarten Voskuil and Guido Winkler.

‘L’exposition de ce printemps sera dédiée à la création néerlandaise. Le Centre d’art contemporain avait programmé au printemps 2020, une exposition explorant la scène artistique des Pays-Bas. Elle n’avait pu ouvrir à cause de la première épidémie de Covid. La reprise du projet pour le printemps 2023 est une manière de fermer cette frustrante parenthèse.’

The exhibition Icons \ Shift brings together works from four Dutch artists who are closely related to each other and the Leiden based art initiative IS-projects. All four artists make paintings, yet are interested in leading painting away from the two-dimensional. The viewer’s standpoint matters. There is a shift from painting to object, although they are still painters.

Iemke van Dijk (1969) is co-founder of IS-projects. With printmaking as her background, her interest turned to making reliefs. Since 2010 she makes wall drawings and floor pieces that are basically trompe-l’oeil reliefs. Iemke van Dijk is interested in serendipity, yet deliberately sets rules for it to work. The work on show is part of a new series entitled Circles and Squares. The observer who understands that ovals represent circles will experience space and movement.

The geometric abstract work of Henriëtte van ’t Hoog (1943) often makes you lose your balance. She plays with the perspective of cube-like forms, with their three-dimensionality, their colour, and light. When you walk along these objects, their forms change, their perspective collapses. The reflecting paint on the back of the object radiates its colour on the wall. The reflection emphasizes its spatiality and gives the thing a poetic connotation. Consequently, the work of Henriëtte van ’t Hoog is at the same time concrete and not concrete.

Building on the philosophies of Theo van Doesburg, who promoted pure non-objective abstraction, Jan Maarten Voskuil (1964) creates multi-dimensional works that bridge the boundaries between painting, sculpture and architecture. He expands the possibilities of painting by stretching linen on spatial constructed wooden frames. Rigorous mathematical principles govern his experiments, as does an ongoing conversation with the conventions of Minimalism and Hard-Edge Painting.

In a concise and precise style, Guido Winkler (1969) makes paintings, photographs, multiples and spatial installations that evoke associations with architecture. They invite the viewer to experience space and time, and make him aware of the phenomenon of perception. Winkler’s wooden paintings are flat and have tapered sides. Like the work of the other selected artists, his work balances between painting and object. Guido Winkler is co-founder of IS-projects.

One hundred years after De Stijl, elements of its principles can be found in the work of each one of these artists. Taking it further and adding their own set of rules, they are going forward. They have found liberty in altering form, colour and material to a point of calm, balance and rhythm completely and deliberately in their own way.

De kunstenaars in de tentoonstelling In Stijl werken in meer of mindere mate abstract, zonder dat zij zich conformeren aan de uitgangspunten van De Stijl met haar primaire kleuren en strakke vormentaal.

In 2017 is het honderd jaar geleden dat De Stijl werd opgericht, de legendarische kunstenaars- en architectengroep rond Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondriaan en Gerrit Rietveld. Hun theorieën over kleur en ruimte leidden tot een revolutionaire, volledig abstracte beeldtaal die een wereld van totale harmonie moest brengen. De Stijl werd in 1931 opgeheven, maar is tot op de dag van vandaag voor kunstenaars, vormgevers en architecten een inspiratiebron.
