De Ateliers DEBUT: David Jablonowski

00:04:07 257 Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
David Jablonowski is acclaimed for the ingenious way in which he plays with a wide range of materials. He creates exciting contrasts by locating high tech elements in a natural environment and by combining the latest communications technology with organic elements like spices and grain.

 The De Ateliers DEBUT SERIES is the fruit of the close and enduring relationship between the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and De Ateliers.

Prosumer is an exhibition of work by David Jablonowski (b. Bochum, 1982). It is the first in a new series of solo shows being held at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag in partnership with De Ateliers in Amsterdam (the Netherlands’ premier institute fostering young artistic talent). The event is in line with the Gemeentemuseum’s ambition not only to hold exhibitions linked to its collection of classic modern art, but also to show challenging new work of today.

A ‘prosumer’ is a cross between a consumer and a producer. The term refers to the contemporary phenomenon by which we are (almost) all both consumers and producers of the contents of the World Wide Web. David Jablonowski has created a new installation specifically for this show: a contemporary collage featuring his sculptures, made of aluminium off-set printing plates and of stone, accompanied by projected images of nature or of fingerprints.
