Is summer time and Atelier GF Workstation is delighted to announce that the DUKKHA series will be shown at:
Dukkha (Double Dip), Galerie 23, Amsterdam, The Netherlands / Opening 29 May (16hrs)
Dukkha (Double Dip), Mon Capitaine, Middelburg, The Netherlands / Opening 5 June (16hrs)
Dukkha Double Dip is an ongoing series of events that brings together a series of multidisciplinary presentations in the Netherlands, Panama / MAC Museo de Arte Contemporáneo and Costa Rica / Bienal Centroamericana. Dukkha engages the public in a dialogue with the field of Genetics, textiles, Africania, animism, migratory aesthetics, soundscapes, Pan Africanism and Postcolonial theory.
For Dukkha I’ve been working my way through old photos. Scratching, painting and using nails on them with acrylics, wax and threads.
Atelier Gf Workstation is a globetrotting studio that exists in different circumstances and spaces like The Veluwe, Amsterdam Oost, AIR Open Ateliers Zuidoost, Cope, Panama City and Dakar. The Atelier developed Dukkha during residencies at Art Omi International Arts Center, New York,Windward School, Los Angeles and Lectures at The New School, New York.
