12:00 – 19:00    Closed on 7th and 8th of May.
Martijn Kluit studied art in The Netherlands (Royal Academy of Art) and Istanbul (Mimar Universitesi). Kluit has been living and working as an artist in Japan since 2010. The production of his works are a method of associative research into alternate histories, both ancient and recent, in which the posit that there is no absolute truth is taken to heart and used to imagine possible continuations of unfinished tales. Visually, Kluit is searching for a balance between accessibility and layeredness; colourful and often humorous images half obscure more dubious notions of nationalism, globalism, materialism, religiosity and fanaticism of various kinds.
In “FLUX/FIRE” at WISH LESS gallery Kluit is showing recent paintings and drawings. The title stems from a letter from one British sailor to another, both stationed in Japan in the 17th century. In the letter adultery is confessed and the receiving party is asked to “condemn this letter to flux (sea) or the fire”. The letter was condemned to neither and survived to color our collective understanding of the past. The works in “FLUX/FIRE” are intended as a subjective coloration of minor incidents in past and future in which viewers are invited to wonder about their different origins and relations.


2014/05/03 sat   19:00 – 21:00
There will be a reception party for the artist.
