17 February through 24 March 2019
Tomb of the Ordinary Man is an exhibition curated by Nare Eloyan who focuses on the object quality of artworks. She herself paints on ceramic vases that she finds in second hand shops. She sees them as material that is offered to her by the urban environment. By painting on them she connects her art with society as it were. In the exhibiton she will assemble a collection of artworks that share a quality of being objects. Nare Eloyan will invite several artists to create a room that can be perceived as a tomb or a treasure room, not for kings of pharao’s but for the ordinary man. Besides her own vases and drawings the tomb will contain textile and glass works by Christie van der Haak, ceramic sculptures by Elmar Trenkwalder, embroidered and patched tapestries by Jakup Ferri and ceramic monkeys by Zeger Reyers.
