Johan Creten: Naked Roots / Naakte Wortels

Museum Beelden aan Zee, Den Haag,
01.06 - 23.09.2018

Under the title Naked Roots museum Beelden aan Zee will display a selection of fifty sculptures in clay and bronze, many of which are monumental, by the Belgian artist Johan Creten. With both earlier and more recent work, this exhibition provides the visitor with the opportunity to gain a broad overview of his rich oeuvre. The symbolic title refers not only specifically to the basis of Creten's sculptures, but also to more general themes such as origins, the place of the individual in history, and human relationships.

Tom Polo, of defence and doubt, 2018, acrylic and Flashe on canvas, 60 x 50 cm, private collection, photo Jessica Maurer

Tom Polo (b. 1985, Sydney, Australia) uses painting and painted environments to explore how conversation, doubt, gesture and ways of looking are embodied within abstracted acts of portraiture.
Frequently incorporating text and figurative elements, his works draw on acute observations, absurdist encounters and personal histories.
An ongoing interest across his practice is the emotional and performative relationships between people within social space.

Transit art gallery

Transit was founded in 1988 in Leuven, Belgium by Dirk Vanhecke and Bert de Leenheer. The gallery moved to Mechelen in 1998.
Transit exhibits and promotes contemporary art.
The gallery is housed in an art déco building (1934) where art works are shown in an informal context.
Transit believes that every way of expression that an artist chooses can be a valid way, therefore different ways of expression (painting, drawing, photography, performance, sculpture, installation, video, audio, concept, ...) can find their place in the gallery and in the office that also serves as permanent exhibition space.

Transit werd opgericht in Leuven in 1988 door Dirk Vanhecke en Bert de Leenheer. In 1998 verhuisde de galerie naar Mechelen.
Transit toont en promoot internationale aktuele kunst en organiseert tweemaandelijks nieuwe tentoonstellingen.
De galerie is deel van een art deco gebouw uit 1934.
In deze woning én in de tuin kan de bezoeker permanent verschillende werken ontdekken van de kunstenaars die sedert 1988 in Transit exposeerden.
