'Venus' maskers, parallel aan de expositie Embodied Spaces

On Tuesday June 23rd 2015 Framer Framed hosted the amazing performance event VENUS – The anti-hero Hero, on the history of black bodies and representation in art. Our exhibition space was alive with discussion, music, performances and… art by Shertise Solano and Ronald De Graaff.

The titel of the performance refers to the objectification and forced public display of ¬†Sarah Baartman (c.1789‚Äď 29 December 1815), a Khoikhoi woman who was exhibited as a ‘freak show’ attraction in 19th-century Europe under the name Hottentot Venus, a name which was later attributed to at least one other woman similarly exhibited. The women were exhibited for their steatopygic body type uncommon in Western Europe which not only was perceived as a curiosity at that time, but became subject of scientific interest as well as of erotic projection.

Shertise Solano and Ronald De Graaff¬†created a series of beautiful masks especially for the Venus performance directed by Milone Reigman. The event was part of the¬†exciting programme¬†Perspectives,¬†a¬†series¬†of public events¬†curated by Amal Alhaag in the context of the exhibition¬†Embodied¬†Spaces (2015). We really liked the masks and thought it was an amazing addition to the exhibition. Therefore, Shertise Solano’s masks are¬†on display in the Tolhuistuin hallway downstairs, from Friday 3rd July! Feel free to come view them during the runtime of the exhibition Embodied Spaces, until July 26th, 2015. For more one ¬†Shertise Solano and Ronald De Graaff, please refer to the links below.
