In September and October 2021, Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank will present new work at Fred&Ferry Gallery, Antwerp.
For this personal solo show, the duo will explore the big and small questions of life, the recent worldwide turmoil (during which both artists became fathers), and how the artists have grown and evolved as collaborators. Expect a vibrant combination of shrines, murals, sculptures and rituals!
Frank&Robbert Robbert&Frank grew up together 🕺🕺🏼. They developed a strong sense for the symbolic and political power of images.
Seeking the poetical 🌱 rather than the provocative 💥 they create personal works that invite the viewer to take a closer look 🔍.
Questioning the status of the artist, they continuously develop new methodologies for creating and showing their art.
Trial and error ❌, persistence 🔥 and humour 😊 are key ingredients in their practice.

Mirthe Klück (1991, The Netherlands) is interested in combinations. She makes associative connections between material, composition and texture. The starting point of her work is often a simple idea or something very commonplace.
Klück asks herself: “can the artist add meaning to seemingly uneventful things, make the impersonal personal?” Or, as Hagakure would put it, can she treat matters of small concern with due respect? (Steven van Teeseling)

Research into narrative techniques in literature, film and photography lies at the root of Jana Coorevits’ artistic practice. From there she explores an in-between space where the boundary between an inner world and the physical world becomes fluid.
An area where fragility becomes strength, where color, texture, light and form become carriers of meaning. A mental landscape where images are not created through language and thought, but where images emerge from the space between words, between thoughts, the white space around the ink.
In this liminal space an encounter between the personal and the collective takes place.
