Femke Hiemstra “La Mort En Cadence”

Various interpretations of the theme Death and the Maiden can be found throughout history. Usually paintings depict a sensual connection between a skeleton and a young maiden. The Roq La Rue Gallery is adding a chapter to this dialogue which has been a focus in art from the time of the ancient Greeks, the Renaissance and even the Fluxus art movement. This dance of death takes on a new contemporary twist as the amazing artists in this exhibition interpret the intimacy of death.

Featured artists are Kazuki Takamatsu, Femke Hiemstra, Travis Louie, Glenn Barr, Esao Andrews, Andrew Hem, Sylvia Ji, Peter Gronquist, Marco Mazzoni, Ciou, Lisa Petrucci.
