Remember Me

Remember Me

Exhibition
01 October 2021 - 16 January 2022
Rijksmuseum

Portraits make the absent present and remind us of those whom we wish to commemorate when they are no longer with us. Those have been the two main functions of portraits since classical times. This was perpetuated when portraiture entered on its first great flowering around 1500, both north and south of the Alps. Be it those dear to us, a celebrity or a donor venerating a saint, the sitter is speaking to the viewer with the words ‘Do not forget me’.

Exhibition Tentoonstelling
01 October 2021 - 20 March 2022
Kunstinstituut Melly

In the Solo Duets series, Kunstinstituut Melly presents two solo exhibitions simultaneously. This iteration shows new work by Iris Kensmil (1970) and Jasmine Thomas-Girvan (1961).

Iris Kensmil is a Dutch artist with roots in Surinam. Her portraits of Black people in the modern Western world emphasise their central role as progressive thinkers and activists. Hers is a quiet exercise of reading, listening, looking – and then painting.

Jamaica-born and Trinidad and Tobago-based artist Jasmine Thomas-Girvan casts statues in bronze, silver and glass, often incorporating natural materials found in the Caribbean region. Her imaginative creations are inspired by folklore, myth and (oral) history.
