Faubourg - Look At Me!


by Editors in Events & Agenda , 11 August 2004

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar


From August 1 the Faubourg Gallery exhibits works by the German painter Michaël Müller and the Dutch artist Wim van Heeswijk. The latter is primarily known as a painter, but this time he shows his scuptures. Müller gave this exhibition the title "Schau mich an - Look At Me". But contrary to what this title might suggest, his poetic and realistic portraits don't cry out to the viewer: Look at me!, but invite him or her to get involved with the possibilities, emotions and stories of the people depicted.

Müller's paintings are characterized by a slightly melancholy mood and the artist knows how to capture contemporary young men in their surroundings.

At first sight Wim van Heeswijk's sculptures seem much more to command the viewer to look at them; they are flamboyant and give an impression of decadence. It isn't even clear whether the figures are male or female.



However, this distinction isn't really important, because on a closer look Van Heeswijk's sculptures are typified by an air of piousness. In spite of their vulnerability, his figures throw themselves open, they are prepared to carry life's burdens...

This exhibition will be opened on Sunday August 1, from 16.00 to 18.00 hrs. During Amsterdam Pride Faubourg also presents Art Pride, which shows works by the artist from home and abroad which the gallery represents.



Galerie Faubourg, Overtoom 426, 1054 JT Amsterdam, (020) 6761918, www.faubourg.nl
Geopend: dinsdag t/m vrijdag 12.00-18.00 uur, zaterdag en zondag 12.00-17.00 uur.
