Two weeks ago we went to see the opening of our friend Silvia B‘s exhibition in Amsterdam. Stringendo, her latest series of sculptures, still reveal a fascination with beauty, morbidity, perfection, vulnerability and gender, but leave behind her usual language of dramatic contrasts and stagecraft for a highly personal, emancipated, interpretation. I don’t hide anymore the fact that I make dolls, says the artist.

A short interview with Silvia B is coming up here, so stay tuned!

Stringendo, together with a young South African artist Mohau Modisakeng‘s show Endabeni at the adjoining space, will be at Ron Mandos till the 2nd of April. Both shows are amazing and they greatly complement each other – don’t miss them!
