art + artists
Remy Jungerman, the Surinamese/Dutch artist perhaps best known for the installations "Flattened Toad Force"
and "Afro Intensity" is now on exhibit in "By The Way," a four person show at Museum Tongerlohuys
, in the Nederlands and on display from 15 December 2007 until 6 April 2008.
If that's too far to travel, you can also see some of his work [an installation titled "Sometimes Travelers Don't Come Back, They Become Villages Themselves"] as part of the Infinite Island: Contemporary Caribbean Art
at the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York. That exhibition runs until 27 January 2008.
Jungerman's work explores how people from different cultures try to make themselves understood and how people communicate in the visual languages they use. His work raises questions about aesthetic inquiry with Africa and its Diaspora, as well as with intellectual notions of black, white and color as used to signify race and culture.
That's Remy [on the left] with a collector and Marcel Pinas, another of the artists in the Brooklyn Museum show.
