Amsterdam Dreamtown. Pijffers & Brizzi

In the year 1613 the city of Amsterdam started the construction of a new district, situated around the old city centre. Citizens were given the opportunity to buy a lot along the canals and construct a building, the way they liked it. Most of these were detached houses. Nowadays, four centuries later, the Amsterdam canals look like one large façade of serried buildings.

In Amsterdam Dreamtown, Willem Pijffers and Emilio Brizzi try to emphasize the individuality of a number of special canal buildings. They developed an original concept: taking pictures of these buildings, isolating them and then transplacing them into exotic stock photo’s. The result is not only surprising, it gives us also a fresh look at houses that usually remain unseen.

Pijffers and Brizzi show us an amazing tour along thirty special buildings in Amsterdam inner city – in a handy book with picture postcards, interesting background information and a map of the depicted buildings.

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
