Why I didn’t Visit the European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) this Year

Why I didn’t Visit the European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) this Year

"I was a young adult when I visited TEFAF the first time. The 2020 edition could have been my 30th visit. For the first 20 years I visited TEFAF with my uncle, a smart man. He could determine the most expensive piece between 2 almost identical still life flowers from the old masters. I remember Mr Noortman’s booth at the entrance. Mr Noortman was always smoking a cigar. At Mr Loek Brons’ booth you could always grab a Dutch mint candy. The entrance was decorated with the most beautiful flower bouquets (I look differently at the flowers now). It was an impressive fair".

Love, Ren Hang

One of the actual shows at C/O Berlin is an homage to Ren Hang, Chinese photographer and poet died in 2007 at the age of twenty-nine. ‘Love’ is the title. Ren’s photos include nude groups and solo portraits of women and men often creating sculptures of intersected bodies. Animals are also used in many pictures and there is a very fine interaction between the two forms of life. Two different creatures, animals and humans, are represented into a dialogue of forms and compositions and the different bodies are shown naked as the nature created.

It’s Not Art, It’s Bananas

For his latest offering to the art world, Maurizio Cattelan has been going bananas. The Italian conceptual artist made the headlines in September this year when his America (2016) – an 18 carat gold, fully functioning toilet – was stolen while on display in Blenheim Palace. His latest stunt, displayed in the booth of French gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin at Art Basel Miami Beach, is a single banana, which he acquired from the local supermarket and stuck to a large wall with silver duct tape. He has entitled his banana Comedian.

Sergey Melnitchenko on the Mykolayiv Young Photographers

"We live in the provincial town of Mykolaiv in the south of Ukraine (2 hours from Odessa). The area is full of young, interesting photographers and creators, but they all felt quite afraid to come out into the light and to show themselves. They didn’t think there was an appetite for their work. I am now coming to the end of my third group of the photography course and we will be welcoming a few new members to the collective from that intake".
