Faisel Saro. (Visual Artist)
Faisel traces historical layers in his artworks. He unites those layers and the accompanying symbols with the present. The symbols from the different layers enter into a certain confrontation or dialogue with each other. Using ink, pencil, acrylic paint and ballpoint pen, he draws on tracing paper, which he then pins onto Foam. Faisel tries to connect people by connecting layers and symbols. He wants to make the viewer aware of his position in relation to others.
Saturday, 3 till 29th April, 2021.
Three artists each investigate in their own way what they find when they follow certain tracks. Traces in time, traces in space and traces between people. Similarities in their work are the investigation, the layering and the challenge of the viewer to choose position. They try to find guidance in mapping multiple dimensions. They trace.
Opening: The new iconoclasm.
Saturday 1 Febrary 2020 at 5 pm (until 7 pm)
According to the artist Faisel Saro a storm is raging over our contemporary Western visual culture. This new Iconoclasm opposes the worship of icons that contribute to `disadvantage`of people.
Michiel de Ruyter was untill recently seen as a brave Dutch naval hero, but his heroic deeds are nowadays overshadowed by less beautiful facts.
In the new iconoclasm Saro connects historical and colonial layers from his past with conflicting icons from the contemporary. With his work, Saro wants to contribute to a natural social process that simply has to take place in our multicultural society.
Hope to welcome you warmly during the opening. It promises to be a special opening. The exhibition can be seen from 1 to 27 February 2020.
