Project Description

Janes Haid – Schmallenberg | The dark side of consensus

From 9th March until 15th April 2018 Hoorn & Reniers organizes the first solo exhibition in The Netherlands of Berlin based artist Janes Haid – Schmallenberg entitled ‘The dark side of consensus’. In his deceitfully offhand ecstatic scenes Janes Haid – Schmallenberg depicts the outcry of desperate indviduals subjugated to the impossibly fast pace of today’s society.

In his paintings and ceramic sculptures Janes Haid – Schmallenberg strives for a balance between abstraction and figuration and between seriousness and play, resulting for instance in the use of absurd painting materials like nutrition powder for bodybuilders. Janes Haid – Schmallenberg’s work falls within a larger movement of young artists worldwide whose works question the established forms of painting.

The opening of ‘The dark side of consensus’ will take place on Friday 9th March from 19.00 until 23.00 hours.
