TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

1. ABOUT US 'Treasures for the future' is a two-day international art and charity event with a dual goal. On one hand it provides a podium to international artists, both established and emerging, from a variety of countries, thereby extending their international networks. On the other hand it provides support to the ‘BogotaZonderHonger’ foundation which helps support children in Bogota, Colombia. Following the on-site exhibition of artworks, selected pieces will be auctioned and a portion of the proceeds donated to the Foundation. The event is supported by the Municipality of Bernheze, and Castle Heeswijk Horeca, located in historical Castle Heeswijk and created and organized by Studio Ekaterina.

BogotaZonderHonger foundation In Colombia, many people live at or below the poverty line. Also in the capital Bogota it is difficult for many families to get around. Therefore, in several areas so-called soup kitchens exist which supply children, elderly and sick with a hot meal. One of these kitchens is situated in Egypto Verde, a neighbourhood in Bogota. This soup kitchen is located in a home run by Mrs. Betilda. Hedi Furniture bv is located in Heeswijk-Dinther (Netherlands) under the inspiring leadership of Evert and Jeanette Heerkens. Hedi furniture imports furniture among others from Colombia. Regularly they are faced with the sad circumstances in the country in which they work. Through an intermediary, Evert and Jeanette were informed of the problems of Mrs. Betilda. Following a visit to the home they decided to completely renovate the kitchen. A roof has been installed and the floors have been refurbished. Also new furniture has been purchased. The children gather in the morning on an empty stomach, at a school from where they go to the home. After school, the children can attend music, football or tennis training so that they are not forced back on to the streets. Currently the home has been extended and is now intended for all children from the neighbourhood of Egypto Verde living in poverty. The number of children supported by the home is now approximately 280.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

In 2007 Hedi Furniture had already existed for 25 years. An anniversary party was given from which the contribution was donated to the home in Egypto Verde. Supplemented with private donations, Evert and Jeanette decided to sponsor the home for another year. After this year to ensure the continuity of the home they have decided to set up a foundation; BogotaZonderHonger. The goal of the foundation is to maintain the home, so that the children are provided every day with a full meal and to ensure that their free time is filled out properly with sports or music. The foundation is constantly seeking to raise money to continue their work.

Exposition and Auction The two-day event has a dual goal of providing a podium to international artists, both established and emerging, to present their artworks and providing support to the foundation and therefore the children in Bogota through the organization of an auction. Artist's participation in the event will be free of charge. Instead, the artists are requested to donate a part of the auction proceeds of their works to the foundation. The auction wil be conducted by Master Rob van der Hoeff (Auction House Korst van der Hoeff). In addition, school children of 't Palet will participate by creating their own artworks that will also be auctioned. Thus, the title of the event "Treasures for the Future" refers both to the children of Bogota and the artworks.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

Round Table discussion As an important part of the event, we invite you to participate in a Round Table discussion on "Art as Social Practice". This is a phrase often used to characterise a socially conscious form of creative expression that seeks to engage the artist and work of art in its humanitarian struggle. Art can, and should be more than, as Seneca said, an "imitation of nature", or art for art's sake. Over the years, art has been driven by religion, commissions, decorative purposes, protests, propaganda, and far more. We suggest that contemporary artists devote a portion of their time to affect a better future for themselves and others - to use art as activism, as social practice. Artists' boundless creativity can be used to socially inspire the future. Artists can and should create some works of art as social practice to attempt to persuade viewers and influence emotions, attitudes, opinions, and actions to change the world for the better. This, in our opinion, is the present and future role of art, craft, and photography. The Round Table will include discussions on the connection of art, photography, and craft with various social issues that can change the world of art and that can socially, politically, and philosophically represent the direction of society; as well as discussions on art as a physical object that occupies space versus one that takes on an active role of its own. Participants: Peter van Boekel. Alderman Art & Culture Municipality Bernheze, Netherlands. Ruurd Hallema. Ambassador of Amsterdam Art City, Netherlands. Kari Rady. Art Historian, USA. Prof. Arsen Melitonyan. Poet, professor of cultural anthropology, Russia. Prof. Lola Zvonareva. Professor, art critic, Russia. Ekaterina Kruchkova. Creator and event manager, Netherlands. And others competent persons‌

3. ARTISTS Amiran DJANASHVILI. Georgia / Netherlands Amiran Djanashvili entered the Spacial Art School in Tbilisi at the age of seven. After finishing the school he entered the sculpture faculty of the State Art Academy, where he graduated in 1987. Since 1991 Amiran lives with his family in the Netherlands and exhibits his works in many countries. Amiran’s sculptures are sold in Japan, Israel, USA, Belgium, Germany, the former Soviet Union and of course the Netherlands. Amiran considers composition and form as the most important; his sculptures are compact and can be carved from stone, wood or casted in bronze. He is very keen on details, as every detail must contribute to the total composition. Amiran uses constructive forms to create a composition and 3D elements are very important – the sculpture must not have an obvious “facade” but should be interesting from all sides. All the forms must be plastically interesting and should be in perfect harmony with each other.

Ekaterina KRUCHKOVA. Russia / Netherlands Russian-born artist, currently livs and works in the Netherlands where she founded Art Photo Studio STUDIO EKATERINA in 2012. She finds inspiration in her travels around the world. The millennium was a time of great change in her personal and professional life; she fully dedicated herself to art and found in this her vocation. There are two main independent directions in her work, and they are interdependent. One results from deep reflection, meditation and expression of emotional and most elusive moments of her inner life. This gives a character of spontaneity and uniqueness to each artwork. So she creates her drawings and paintings. Her drawings are done in ink on small size paper. Regarding the paintings, she only works with oil on canvas. The other one is the whole impression of everyday life around her, reflected in artistic research in photography. Her intention is to show ordinary items in such a way that details are present that would normally be overlooked. She wants people to be able to distinguish all the particulars of the subject, thereby bringing the subject to life. In this way, the ordinary becomes something extraordinary. In photography she uses a variety of mediums and techniques, such as aluminum and acrylic; in the same way all her photographs reflect reality without using any digital editing. Her photographs have taken part in exhibitions in France, Russia, Austria, England, Italy, Montenegro and the Netherlands. Some of her works belong to private collections in these countries and also in the United States. She equally works for the publishing house Romanoff in Moscow (Russia) and for the magazine World and House. One of her finalized projects Theatre of one actress with the Russian prosaic writer Marina Palei was published in the International magazine on literature, artistic and cultural topics Maecenas and World.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

Eva Patricia MURAKEÖZY. Hungary Creation is constant in life. Through each and every act in life we create: the way we stand, walk, talk. We create this environment around ourselves. However, most of these creations are transient because they are derived from/bound to a momentary situation. But some of these creations are independent of the given situation, or, the situation just serves as a starting point or an excuse for their making. Since they are not bound to a given time/space reality, they are meaningful for a wider group of people, and throughout centuries. These we distinguish as artworks.

For me creation is an inner necessity. It is the way to let go of something which would otherwise disturb me. Periods of „gestation‟ alternate with periods of creation. Gestation periods are often troublesome. I feel an increasing distance from previous (ongoing) works and feel my life increasingly meaningless. When the new is ready to be born, a moment of relaxation is enough to let it come forth. So there is this steam which needs my „engine‟: my individual experiences, aesthetic feelings, practical knowledge, etc… in order to produce an artwork.

The main theme of the presented works is organic growth. It is the way creeping plants grow; searching and trying, equally helped by diffusion and contraction, by perfection and imperfection. The amazing thing is that this process is able to lead to the most clear and stable crystal forms as well as to such complicated organs as the human ear or heart.

Ineke VAN BERKOM. Netherlands Working at home and travelling throughout the world I was inspired by other cultures, environments and landscapes which I translated in portraits and in colourful figurative paintings. Gradually there has been a shift in my work from the figurative to the abstract as I can express more of myself in the adventure of what is developing by applying several coats of acrylic paint and other materials. Experimenting with all kinds of materials or stuff that I gather is my biggest joy. I paint and apply, scrub, destroy and build again. Little by little a skin arises. Nowadays the world around me is my biggest inspiration. Motives from nature but also weathered walls, rusted iron, erosion‌the imperfect attracts me. Whether I am travelling or just walking in the streets around the corner I get fascinated by the view as well as by the smallest details just in front of my feet. Especially the natural deterioration fascinates me. Their shifting structure, colour and shape have a beauty that is beyond words. My work is all about the cycle of growth, flow, movement and decay.

Jorge JURADO. Colombia The images shown during the exhibition are a small part of Jurado’s most recent one-man show called, Imagined Memories (Jan – March 2014). The exhibition took place at the historical Saint Peter Claver Monastery in Cartagena, and reflects upon his earliest memories as a child in his Caribbean hometown of Cartagena. Almost throughout his whole artistic career, Jurado has consistently juxtaposed contrasting compositions in order to create a dialogue within his works. He is strongly attracted to the world of comic books, as well as to the colours of pop art. Jurado first studied economics due to family pressure and then at the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Cartagena (1982 - 1985). He moved to N.Y. and studied drawing at the art Students League. He has had 16 one-man shows and has taken part in numerous national and international group exhibitions. In Germany he was exhibited twice at Galerie Ruta Correa in Freiburg (2001 and 2005). His works are in private collections in Colombia, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, France, Spain and is mostly collected in Germany.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

José HEERKENS. Netherlands My work is about the essence of space by the concentration and intensity of line and colour. Space is in motion and at the same time it is endless and boundless. I search for the phase of rest and motion, sound and silence, distance and nearness, form and openness.

Finding balance

between colour, line, measure and form is important in this process towards space. The lines shape and guide space. Both the vertical and the horizontal line is needed. Besides direction it creates rhythm and repetition. It is the horizontal line that dominates through the painting process; it pulls the image out to the sides, towards a horizontal space. The vertical lines create the framework and set the scale. The vertical line returns in the shape of the aligned horizontal line. In every painting is the need to zoom in on colour and the appropriate dosage of its space, light and energy. I search for every colour, its identity and the relation to another colour. Being free of matter, colour gets its form and is materialized in the length and width of the line and by the physicality of paint.

I was, and still am, fascinated by it – the way you can capture a precious moment is magnificent. At the age of 14, I have been accepted to become a member of Federation Photographique de France. I participate in regional and national contests every year. I also participate in public expositions in the House of Culture in Rambouillet, France. My photographs have reached the first place last year, which issued through public voting. Even today, I am still discovering the hidden possibilities of photography, trying to catch every single opportunity for this. Masha is 17 years old.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

Marc ALEXANDER. South Africa Marc works mostly in oils in the style of the traditional realist. After seeing a vision of the completed work, he then breaks the image up into layers and painstakingly paints each until perfection is reached. He prefers to paint recognizable objects or elements that can be observed in nature and aims always to capture and poetically express subjects and themes about our world and the human condition, especially those things that cause us great joy or great sorrow. In the past few years, Marc has caused a sensation in the art world, especially with his large portraits of Nelson Mandela. These are so life like and expressive that they caught the attention of the late Alf Kumalo – one of South Africa’s most famous photographers and personal friend of Nelson Mandela, who has shared with us his incredible journey to freedom that South Africa has experienced with his many iconic scenes of the anti-Apartheid struggle.

Nelli LASSEN. Denmark Nelli Lassen, Born 1976 in Sarov (formerly known as Arzamas-16), Russia. Educated in fine and applied arts in Russian and Denmark. Although born and schooled in Russia, she has lived most of her adult life in Denmark. Her art can be seen as a continuation of the eastern European tradition for excellence in artistic execution and love for the naturalistic motive framed by a Scandinavian mood with a more gloomy light and affinity for exploration of the shadow land between mind and matter – a theme often found in her portraits.

Patrick RAPAI. South Africa By painting on canvas, I create the paste from mixed wood glue, wood vanish, tile grout or cement. I work with three paintings at a time, after a proportional sketch done with engraving and scratching of wet paste. I apply textures in sequence with a palette knife. It takes the whole day to complete drying up the applied textures. Following is the background paint usually dark colours that will later show as shadows. Finally, the application of intended colours is done with a roller brush that allows only embossed areas to be touched by the roller movement. All this procedure is important to me as it creates an interdependent composition.

Philani LUTHULI. South Africa Philani Luthuli’s paintings have gained international acclaim. Some of his artworks form part of a travelling exhibition that is currently taking place in Russia. He also exhibited his paintings at the World Expo in Shangai in 2010. A self taught artist, Luthuli’s journey to creating art started as a child when used to draw. This led to painting later on in life. “I was lucky to have people around who understood and did art from an early age”, says Luthuli.

Pol DURRUFF. France Between 2005 and 2009 he became head of the training department of the Photographic Federation of France (FPF). Since then, he devoted himself to art photography and has exhibited in France various series of photographs. For over twenty years he has mainly worked on the phenomena of reflection and its pictorial records.

Photographic impressionnism The series "impressionnisme photographique" shows the close relationship that can exist between photography and painting. The agitation of water causes fleeting images in which the shapes and colours come together, to form abstract and unique paintings. All his research is to freeze the perfect moment when the composition and distribution of light are balanced to give birth to a harmonious picture, procedure identical to that of a painter. Looking at his works we are wondering: Is it a painting or a photograph? That destabilizes our vision and gives us a new vision of contemporary photography.

TREASURES FOR THE FUTURE. EDITION 2014

Rob NIJHUIS. Netherlands My pictures tell a story with a beautiful combination of silence, abandonment and architecture. I take thrill in finding a new location where no one ever took pictures before. The excitement of selecting a new location, the adrenaline in our system when we are standing in front of an abandoned building. Will we be able to get in, is there security? What will we find there, complete chaos or the beauty of a forgotten past? This is Urban Exploration, the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest / documentation are heavily featured in this way of photographing and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not always the case and is of innocent intention. I aim for imaging eternally in the best possible way. Sometimes people ask me if I created a setting for a picture, because it looks so bizarre, but I don’t touch anything, I only take pictures and leave footprints. That’s the challenge, searching for special places and capture pictures with a story.

Sharon KUISIS. South Africa I've been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. I was encouraged by family and friends and although I started out doing portraiture I have always been a great lover of wild life and I use my other great love, photography, to capture images I paint. After working in pastels for over 10 years, I decided to try different techniques with oils. After learning the basics and many hours of experimenting I managed to capture the soft pastel effect in oils. I love the dustiness of the African plains and this is where I got the inspiration for the technique. Photography and painting are my 2 great passions, and I have recently taken them up full time. I spend time in the bush taking photos, then I work from my studio at home either developing them into fine art photography or using them to create an original artwork. I work in oils, charcoal and pencil.

Sharon REYES. USA Computer Engineer / Law Background Producer / Director / Photographer Digital Mix Media based Artist Occasionally, I get the urge to do something else and sometimes, I even go along with it; I use combinations of traditional Digital mix media. My work tends to be based on computer to create colourful images and abstract and these will also be confirmed by this Exhibition. Colour is all around us. We see it all the time. Most of us have no idea the impact of colour has on our lives. Colour is in every part of life. This impact of the many colours in our environment is usually not conscious. Take a moment every day to look around you and feel the colours, enjoy the colours. Live your life in full colour. “I am therefore also Digital Mix Media Artist who uses the colourful world of the Digital Technology.�

Valentina PISCOPO. Italy “The international and diverse energy of Valentina Piscopo’s art work and career is heavily inspired by her own origins and beginning. With her childhood divided between Italy and Kenya her experiences as a child have strongly influenced the aesthetic of her art. She has perfected a unique mix of different mediums to create tactile layers within her artworks which are inspired by landscapes, patterns and wildlife of Eastern Africa. What is most particular about the artist’s work, is the hybrid of ethnic influences; part-recycled materials and western practices.” Art Platform NYC

5. SPONSORS Kasteel Heeswijk and Horeca

Somewhat hidden in the forested land between ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Eindhoven is the formidable Castle Heeswijk. Formerly a water fortress, it dates back to the 11th century and has undergone a recent restoration which overall enhances its characteristic beauty. Castle Heeswijk is a castle in the true sense of the word, containing towers, galleries, courtyards, arches, an armoury, a coach house and cobblestones. Fully surrounded by a wide moat, amidst lush farmlands and forests, one can call it an inspiring monument where culture and nature, its turbulent history and culinary versatility dynamically seem to blend in hand in hand. Inside but also outside its walls, the castle regularly carries out cultural activities. One of these is Treasures for the future. In the light of the 25th anniversary of Castle Heeswijk Horeca, our project was enthusiastically received by the castle’s direction. Having made the castle, its vaults and coach house available to us, Castle Heeswijk has become one of the most important sponsors of this event.

De bie + de bie De Bie + De Bie is an architecturel agency that support the BogotaZonderHonger Foundation and the project it-self. Our approach is to interpret as a complexity of the task - often conflicting - interests and not to play against each other, but always be translated into a unique synthesis. Concepts such as naturalness, familiarity and whimsy are guiding principles. The concept of style in our view it is only used as a way of working and not as a design template for predictable architecture and urbanism. The result should be both surprising and confident, challenging, and subdued. Our work is characterized by simplicity and clarity in a large degree of diversity at all levels.
