After Gerolama Cardano's suspension
The environment sways and stamps, but the object is sustained and is not in the first place moved by its surroundings. The context in which is worked and thought is decisive for the art that is shown. Above all it is made inside the world of the artist, in spite of however the work is understood by the outer world. The compass of the artist is directed by his/her own magnetic field to which is listened to. This is the art and artist's attitude that is put on display in 'After Gerolama Cardano's suspension'. The swaying gimble is like the eye of an artist.
Yann SÚrandour EB will make a special installation related to the mathematician Gerolama Cardano who was also a gambler. The buyer will not know exactly what he will purchase. It is packed and only the title may help to get a clue. Takako Saito will show a hat that for her in the first place is a chess game, Gerhard Richter will be present with a page of one of his paintings taken out of a catalogue and afterwards signed by him bluntly on the middle of the color plate. Nicolas Chardon shows a triptych with a religious connotation; the later not being of his particular interest. Yet it is there.
In the exhibition a group of works have been put together that may be misleading or confusing. The visual out come is different from what one would expect when one takes the oeuvre of the specific artist into account.
