Dear Shaded Viewers,
The Ravestijn Gallery was founded in 2012 by Narda Van ‘t Veer and Jasper Bode. This is the first time that the Ravestijn Gallery is at the Art Paris Art Fair. This year Africa is guest of honour. The Ravestijn Gallery presents two young and upcoming artists with each their own link to Africa: Alinka Echeverria and Nico Krijno.
Alinka Echeverria (1981) shows her series ‘Becoming South Sudan’. Prior to South Sudan’s independence from the Republic of Sudan in 2011, forty years of internal conflicts and two protracted civil wars had permeated the history of the country. ‘Becoming South Sudan’s is a visual story of the event.
Nico Krijno (1981) grew up in a small town in South Africa, before leaving for Cape Town to pursue his career in photography and film. Krijno layers, clones and blurs his images distorting these forms that rebel in the rich history of still life.
