Unreliable Narrators

Last year's global crisis (still ongoing) marked an exponential growth in relation to how we witness our lives through the screen. The ever changing reality we are experiencing, digestible only day by day, has brought to the foreground our chaotic memory as the only (unreliable) narrator we can trust. We are interested in works that explore the notion of subjective truths and their fragmented qualities. The speed in which we have documented our surroundings during last year's crisis has left us with a residue of poor images, low-quality documentation and an urgent necessity of communicating our indexical presence to the world.

Near, far, wherever you are, Home Cinema is an online video broadcast platform screening and archiving moving image works by young and emerging artists. What can we see together when we cannot see each other? Home Cinema will be periodically activated through collaborations and open calls.

Home Cinema is a project by Carmen Dusmet Carrasco and Andrea González Garrán, designed and developed with Lukas Engelhardt and supported by AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts) and The Medialab Sandberg Instituut.



I close my eyes to wish to see

Peter Schamaun

21.01.22 - 06.02.22




Reneenee presents a solo exhibition by Peter Schamaun. Peter will show a video next to new paintings and sculptures produced during the last year. Peter has in the past studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerpt (BA, MA).
Through the exhibition, Peter Schauman is creating a metaverse, a space that shapes the architecture of his own time and space, as well as exploring the consequences of fictitious realities. From different places in terms of geography, situations, excited by similar themes that get embodied in various techniques and genres that use the hand as an artistic material. “I close my eyes to wish to see”, also exposes constants in a developing self centered society – that no matter how fast the innovations develop, people are still creatures of habit, and what we love the most are the things that we may not understand, but are used to.

“Forgotten, they might have stood there for years seeing nothing but the same, over and over again. The sun blinds me more then closing my eyes, so I look again, further away- what is behind the image that I see.
That is what I see.”

Months of the Year

Philip Coyne

20th November - 12th December

Opening: 20th November, 12:00-16:00
Months of the Year is an exhibition of new works by Philip Coyne about collective labour and social life, which were prompted by a chance encounter with Gustav Klimt’s formally-remarkable yet deeply-reactionary Beethoven Frieze (1902). The exhibition poses “the collective” as a creative modality that finds itself far in excess of the individualism that’s advocated for in Klimt’s work. With these problematics in mind, Coyne questions the ambivalent relationship between an artwork’s formal qualities and its politics, and more specifically the relationship between the  flatness of Klimt’s work and modernity’s more violent forms of regulation.
An ethical question about art making as an extractive process sits at the heart of the work; as a potential answer, Coyne has opted to turn to an expanded notion of communality and collaboration in his work processes—by directly acknowledging the impact that those who are close to him have on the work. One such expanded understanding of community suggests that communality is not simply phenomena engaged with by individuals, nor something confined to dual authorship or ownership, but rather something more akin to a general condition. With this in mind, Months of the Year touches on the asymmetry of struggle; monuments and the monumental; cryptid gifting practices and opacity; the mural as a historically embedded and situated collective form; non-liberal notions of time and space; and representations of escape from normative notions of “the good life.”
This exhibition would have neither been possible, nor this exhibition, without Kristoffer Zeiner, Kim Wawer, Dune Wawer, Anouk Asselineau, Tom Kemp, Alice dos Reis, Jo Kali, Mathew Wayne Parkin, Azul De Monte, Aidan Wall, Holly Childs, Timo Demollin, and countless others.

Months of the Year has been kindly supported by Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Fonds Kwadraat.

On 3 December there will be an accompanying screening of films by Mathew Wayne Parkin, Holly Childs, and Shinsuke Ogawa (Ogawa Productions). There will also be a forthcoming textual response with Azul De Monte published after the exhibition. Poster images by Anouk Asselineau.

or by appointment
LaaLa La LaaaLa Laa A Moment and a Song is a fabulation on the architecture of the everyday, on the mundane, simple rhythm of life. By processing ancestral knowledge and contemporary circumstances, the work takes shape as a scenario presenting another idea of inhabiting. It embodies the idea of home detached from the conventional patterns of the house, a home that goes beyond the confines of typologies and exists as pure moments in space.


Elia Castino is a Piedmontese artist with Neapolitan heart. Builder, farmer, poet and cinematographer of the cave, he lives in a stilt house on a mud island surrounded by a silver lake.

White Card Wardrobe Plot

Lars Nordby

August 13–22, Friday 16:00-19:00 -Saturday and Sunday 13:00-16:00, or by appointment. 



Reneenee is happy to present a solo exhibition by Lars Nordby, titled “White Card Wardrobe Plot”

Opening Friday 13.8 at 17:00-20:00. 

Vijzelgracht 2a. Ring the door bell.
The exhibition is based on found photomicrographs of geological matter. The photographs are mounted in frames made of concrete; a complimentary choice due to its mineralogical material. Some of the frames contain white garments with UV-printed black texts. The texts, written in different languages are excerpts from a collection of poems by Lars Nordby. They are inspired by Albert Camus' notion of the absurd and theatricality. The collection of poems titled “When the Stage Sets Collapse” accompanies the exhibition investigating photography as a medium caught up with our ambiguous and fragmented relationship to the natural world.

Lars Nordby (b.1988, Norway) lives and works in Hamar, Norway, and Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria. Nordby holds a BFA and MFA at the Oslo National Academy of Arts. Exhibitions Nordby has done include Dubious Chalk Circle at the Archeological Museum in Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria (2019); King of Hearts, The Room Contemporary in Venice Italy (2019);Old Laughter and Synonyms for Actors at Rafael Mihaylov in Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria. Nordby runs gallery Heerz Tooya (www.heerztooya.com) in Veliko Turnovo in Bulgaria, and is the director of the artist residency ARV.International (www.arv.international) in Vishovgrad in Bulgaria.
