Viktorie Langer – Out of time
Het Wilde Weten – Guest artist exhibition
exhibition: 27.01.2018 - 28.01.2018
“The seven paintings I made in Rotterdam are like walking the Nieuwe Binnenweg, from Albert Heijn, stop in by smooky Out of time, than to somber Delfshaven, still awareness mighty harbor few steps from you. Absorbed inspiration from city and its diversity, dissimilarity but at same moment, great interplay.”
For the last two months Het Wilde Weten has been host to artist Viktorie Langer as part of our exchange program and with the support of the Tsjechisch Centrum, Rotterdam.
Viktorie Langer (born in 1988, Czech Republic) is primarily a painter, while also working in the media of collage, drawing, textiles and ceramics. Her striking large-sized canvases are clearly inspired by early 20th century art, rather than current trends. Yet the almost abstract work of Langer uses a very contemporary language and has a well-established signature style. The artist has introduced her work primarily in the context of the Czech independent art scene, however, she has also exhibited her work at the National Gallery in Prague, Prague Biennale 6 and at the Sør-Troms Museum in Trastad, Norway. She was finalist of Jindřich Chalupecký award 2017 and is represented by Zahorian & Van Espen Gallery.
The residency is kindly supported by the Tsjechisch Centrum, Rotterdam.
