‘UDUBAKI’ part three – a new exhibition that focuses on the emergence of magic

05/02/2022 - 26/02/2022

At Readytex Art Gallery the third and final part of the UDUBAKI-exhibitions is already on schedule. Starting from Saturday February 5th we will happily receive you in our gallery to enjoy UDUBAKI part three, the next event within the larger ALAKONDRE: A space in time project. It is once again an exhibition, or rather an art manifestation, in which we will show artwork by artists affiliated to the gallery, as well as work from several guest artists. The title UDUBAKI, Sranan for wooden box and for publicity, is used as a metaphor for servitude in relation to spirituality.  

With UDUBAKI part three, curator-in-residence and artist Miguel Keerveld focuses on ‘the emergence of magic’ through relational events in which we truly exist: a metaphor for knowledge and/or awareness. With this theme the curator concentrates on intra-relations or the connection between similarities and differences. Based on his conviction that we are at the same time one whole and diverse, Miguel focuses on “the manifestation of fractions of The Self and aspects that An Other does not have”, as he puts it. Using this as his point of departure for the February exhibition, he selected work by the artists Dakaya Lenz, Dhiradj Ramsamoedj, Helga Reigman, Jhunry Udenhout, Reinier Asmoredjo, Ruben Cabenda and Sunil Puljhun; the ‘local master’ is René Tosari. Miguel also invited co-curator Sri Irodikromo to create a joint installation in which they reflect on the in-depth dialogues within ALAKONDRE: A space in time, the year-long project that is being developed in conjunction with our ‘Alakondre Krutu’ part 2. Just like the previous parts, UDUBAKI part three is a unique art manifestation that you must not just see, but rather one that you have to actually feel and experience. And that is only possible if you come and walk through it in person.

UDUBAKI part three is open from Saturday February 5th until Saturday February 26th 2022. Due to the Covid-measures we will not host an opening reception. You are most welcome to visit during the regular opening hours of the gallery, from Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, and on Saturday from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm. If there is sufficient interest we will schedule guided viewing sessions for individuals or small groups on Saturdays, so please let us know if you are interested in those. We look forward to welcoming you to UDUBAKI part three!
