Kersgallery is a contemporary art gallery in the center of Amsterdam and is founded in 2013. The modern artworks shown in the gallery are personally curated by Annelien Kers. Her primary goal is to be innovative and to show new tendencies and individuals, focusing on both Dutch and international artists. Interesting combinations of contemporary artworks, lots of colors and a vibrant atmosphere are her key-elements. She wants art to be surprising, beautiful, new and to create tension. The gallery shows anything from drawings, paintings, and photography to sculptures, installations, and performance and video art. The works can be viewed at exhibitions in the gallery that change almost monthly. Some artists that are represented by Kersgallery are the painter Marc Mulders, the sculpture Karen Sargsyan, multi-talented artist David Bade, young talented artist Raquel Van Haver, but also new artists like designer Bas Kosters, painter Tessa Chaplin, and multifaceted Iwan Smit.
RAQUEL VAN HAVER
With her raw, narrative and figurative style of painting, Raquel van Haver challenges the Euro-American canon. Her imagery is nurtured by art from ‘other’ regions and with that she tells ‘other’ stories. Although the format of her canvases is reminiscent of history painting, her compositions do not depict the exploits of figures from the west. At the heart of her work are the ‘spirits of the soil’, the central figures in the histories of colonialism, imperialism, migration and diaspora.
