This month's guest #curator is Marta Gnyp. @martagnyp is a Dutch art historian, advisor, author and collector based in Berlin, specialising in post-war and contemporary art.
Her book The Shift: Art and the Rise to Power of Contemporary Collectors based on her PHD research at the University of Amsterdam forms the first systematic academic study on facts and myths of contemporary collecting.
Her focus of interest has been among other things private museums, morality of the art field and the market of older women artists.

We are not participating to China in Print @hongkongmaritimemuseum next week-end but that's a good thought for next year isn't it. For now, let's introduce one of the precursor to modern travel book !
"M. Bertin, Minister and Secretary of State under the last two reigns, felt how a more perfect knowledge of China could be useful to our arts, to our sciences, to our manufactures... The most interesting were an immense collection of 400 drawings made in Beijing... The chance procured to Mr. Nepveu, bookseller, the opportunity to acquire almost all this collection, as well as the correspondence of the missionaries. Several of these subjects appeared to us knew and unknown in France." (preface)
BRETON DE LA MARTINIÈRE Jean Baptiste. La Chine en miniature ou choix de costumes, arts et métiers de cet Empire... Paris, Nepveu, 1811-1812. First edition. 108 engraved plates printed in sepia and finely colored by hand. Red morocco by Thouvenin, complete with the two- volumes supplement often missing.

Flashback: Made in Sicily - Conflicted intimacy 02
Catholic vantage - pop, crass, badly designed but cool uber-kitsch
Catholic Vantage is foremost a pictorial research project that explores the representation of mainly Christian figures, artefacts, buildings, shrines etc. in terms of their perceived (universal) beauty & power within contemporary society. It juxtaposes universal (historical) elements and understanding of beauty with a more modern, contemporary approach.The digitally produced pictures are uber-kitsch, sarcastic and somewhat badly designed mixed media collages (photo, drawing, painting). The image material I am using in this series is primarily the result of my walks around towns and villages. I am not using any material downloaded from the Internet. By weaving different images together I attempt to create stories and allegories in pictorial form.
The work in its entirety responds to the dynamics of the current renewed art market and the culture of instant mass-sharing and availability of information and the highly commercial aspect of art. Each collage is a mass-product. Only the very core of the work, i.e. the raw file, is the original work, the mother, the holy grail, the 1s and 0s that contain the essential information of the work and all its duplications. All (commercial and artist) duplicates are reproductions of a doctrine, a visual understanding of the source, the truth.
