High Culture during TEFAF in Maastricht

March expo 'stars & stripes'

From 2nd to 31st March 2013 and especially during TEFAF (the world 's largest antiques and art fair), High Culture Gallery in cooperation with Gallery Mariska Dirkx present another intriguing exhibition: ‘stars & Stripes’

Based on the theme "assemblage art" High Culture brings again a remarkable collection. Gallery Mariska Dirkx provides a selection of contemporary glass art. slideshow: http://www.flickr.com/photos/glass-art/tags/tefaf2013/show

With a total area of 300m2 of exhibition space will present you artists that focus their visual practice on craftsmanship. Assembling different simple materials to create a sophisticated sculpture. Matching different media to create extra-ordinary effects which became visible through ‘the human skin’.

Puk and Olivier van Wijk concentrated on the development and realization of the bull from stainless steel. Thirty-seven parts are combined into an imposing sculpture with reference to the bull market and character traits like perseverance, strength and speed.

The exhibition will include the phographical-works of Claudio Orlandi. This Italian artist makes his debut in The Netherlands with his Tatuaggi di Luce, female nudes and warm Mediterranean lines projected on the body.

The French-Moroccan artist Max Boufathal shows his Bearskin made of bobbin ribbon with a size of 140 x 190 cm. Its realistic dimensions clearly show that the artist did not create it only as an art sculpture but also for an art performance inspired by the traditional shaman ritual.

Even more craftsmanship is reflected in The Phoenix of Studio-Re-Creation. Nikola Nikolov built it from wooden components, the theme of the line is the heart of this sculpture. This young artist will have his premiere at High Culture Gallery.

In the old bank vault of the building you will find a neon installation by the artist Jörg Hanowski. Jorg is one of the five artists in Europe with 3d neon works. His work combines sculptural elegance with three dimensional drawing with light.

Contemporary glass art by Matt Dyszkiewicz, Sabine Lintzen, Barbara Nanning and others are shown by gallery Mariska Dirkx

The exhibition is open the whole month of March.

Open every weekend from 11 to 17 hours. We are open daily, during TEFAF from 10 to 19 hours.
