Leonardo Vargas "DID'' Mixed media on wooden Panel 2010



We are happy to announce that artist Leonardo Vargas will start our residency program in March.

For Kinderdijk project, Leonardo proposes to develop a short-term project that establishes a dialogue between the space itself as a part of the world cultural heritage and Painting’s tradition.  The surrounding space –as he sees it personally – is connected to the same kind of solemnity that History of painting tries to establish, in terms of it being a historically charged system and an activity coming from a long and important tradition that imposes some kind of silent distance within the experience in which the beholder is involved. But at the same time that idea of a solemn and historically charged thing gets questioned by the way we usually experience images now; and also, a lot to be explored in between…
