Pantheon. Uwe Poth

Since 1974, Uwe Poth (1946) has been working on a series of assemblages, each of which incorporates sixteen postcards of cities that the artist has visited. These postcards are consistently ordered in the same pattern. Four rows of four cards each are joined together, with each card being turned 180° relative to the card beside or below it. Systematic operations are a fixed feature of Poth’s work. While the basic point of departure is a simple system, the objective of this process is always a surprising new image.

Poth has created a total of over 140 assemblages since then. In terms of their number, the combined works actually refer to the Pantheon in Rome. Under the dome (which features 140 coffers) of this majestic ancient building, one finds the tomb of the painter Raphael. With this group of 140 exceptionally beautiful assemblages, made over the course of 37 years, Uwe Poth has managed to create his own ‘roof’ of the world.

With texts of Erik Bos of Galerie Nouvelles Images and Arie Hartog, director of the Gerhard-Marcks-Haus in Bremen (Germany). Especially for this book René Huigen wrote a beautiful poem on the painter Rafaël.

KUNSTRAI ART AMSTERDAM

- post: february 15, 2019

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.
