decided to flip things around and recreated the typical street artist’s canvas, the concrete jungle, in a minimal, stripped down version inside the gallery. The monochrome gray palette refers to the city’s hero color and roughness. Contrasting smooth and rough city textures are altered.
The overall use of gray highlights the pure and calming function of the space. The material mix of raw concrete, rough stucco, mirror, brushed aluminum and high-gloss bold shaped display objects offers contrast and guidance in a subtle way. Oever has personality, but doesn’t steal the thunder of the artists on display.
The open plan space can be divided in different zones by using a smart freestanding system which offers full flexibility and can easily be assembled or expanded whenever and wherever without the need for tools. Display elements and backgrounds in different sizes and colors can be added accordingly.
The opening exhibition consists of five contemporary pop-art artists: Ju Schnee, Yam Shalev, Soichi Yamaguchi, Maria Imaginario and Marcela Florido.
