The news that Galerie BORZO has been accepted to bring a solo presentation/feature to Art Basel 2015 is cause for celebration! Some say it's easier to get a meeting with the pope than to get a slot at Art Basel as a gallery.

Sometimes I see people doing what they do, fullfilling their destiny, following their passion and I wonder if these people are the New Babylonians, the homo ludens, whom Constant envisioned? Watch Taiwan's famous street performer Isaac Hou with his amazing cyr wheel performance and judge for yourself.

 Katja Weitering writes a blog for Jeditha de Groot selecteert uit: Fotografie, Kunst, Mode about a photo she selected from the Spaarnestad archives. Het bruine behang, de appelgroene eettafel set, de kamerplanten en de cactussen; in gedachten teken ik het jaren ’70 interieur van mijn ouderlijk huis tot in de kleinste details uit. Toen ik twee jaar was, verhuisden we naar een ruimere woning. De levendige herinnering aan de kleine flat moet dus wel ontleend zijn aan het foto-album van mijn eerste levensjaren. Talloze malen doorgebladerd.

Constant Nieuwenhuys, Space Circus

Constant-cabinet, Space Circus

Constant's Space Circus is part of the exhibition Art is Therapy by Alain de Botton and John Armstrong at the Rijksmuseum from April 25th till September 7th 2014.
Art is Therapy

The text next to the Constant-cabinet reads:
  Health involves the capacity to think creatively about ways that things could be better. That’s what depression cuts off. Who knows what it would be really like in Constant’s world. But we can only admire the detail and grandeur of the vision.

False work offered: 'signed by Constant'

False work offered as 'signed by Constant', 2014

06-05-2014

Recently we came across several murky works that were offered as art works by Constant at an online auction. We got notified and quickly discovered that one of the works was a copy of an existing watercolor, which makes the work an infringement on copyrights. The second was not even close to any of Constant's works, which makes the work either a misattribution or a forgery. And the last was also a copy of an existing drawing.
