Introducing Urša Prek - Timekeepers

Timekeepers is a new publication by Urša Prek from the Introducing series. Through her work, Urša investigates concepts like history and memory from both a personal as well as a collective perspective. What makes us who we are, what creates our identity when we haven’t experienced our history and can hardly remember (or trust) our own personal memories? With investigative curiosity and a healthy dose of ironic humor she works with various media around these questions, all of which will be presented in this new publication. 

You can pre-order it now through the Voordekunst campaign, or even better: get yourself a special edition with an original artwork by Urša!

The Introducing series focuses specifically on young and emerging artists who we believe should be introduced to a wider audience. These artists show promise in their work, attitude and methods and are ready for the future in these turbulent times.

Upcoming! Nina van de Ven

We are working on a new publication with the talented Nina van de Ven. For this publication, Nina went through her stacks of sketchbooks full of notes, drawings, collages and ideas, to select a good cross-section from these source and inspiration books or visual diaries. Combined with her more known large scale drawings and ceramic pieces this publication will give an extended insight into Nina's practice, from the first scribble to the highly detailed drawings.

The launch of this publication will be held at gallery Ruby Soho in 's-Hertogenbosch in October this year!

Upcoming! Social Debris by Erik Vermeulen

We are currently working on: Erik Vermeulen - Social Debris: a monograph about Vermeulens drawings, sculptures and installations. Erik is a self-described 'observer of social debris'. He digs through mountains of images, tweets, posts and other media expressions in search of images, texts and combinations of both that he feels capture something of the current zeitgeist with all its absurd, pointless and obscure excesses. This material is converted into various drawings and installations, sometimes supplemented with physical debris or discarded items that serve as sculptures in spatial collages.

The publication Social Debris provides a broad overview of Erik's practice, his various series of works that all take a different perspective on contemporary reality, and two essays that consider his work within the context of the 21st Century. This publication is due September 2024.
