Solo exhibition at Flatland gallery
18/9/2021- 30/10/2021

FLATLAND is pleased to invite you for the show ‘KIM’, the first solo exhibition by the artist Kim Boske (Netherlands, 1978). On this occasion Boske wants to challenge the way we look at the horizon – which is also called ‘Kim’ in Dutch, by shifting the focal point from singular to multiple.

Surrounded by her works and accompanied by a soundscape, the pace doesn’t follow the usual rush we all know so well. Guided by the fascination over the passing of time and how this affects the natural element, Boske crafts poetic collections of instants, where the attention shifts on the process rather than the final outcome, on the becoming rather than the being. The philosopher Deleuze and the theory introduced in his ‘Rhizome’ serve here as the ideological ground on which the foundation of Boske’s practice is based. Rather than sequencing history into a straight narration of facts, the Rhizome presents it as a map of attractions, a living mnemonic system which resists chronology and ramifies like a root structure.

For the exhibition, Kim worked with electronic music producer and sound designer NAKANO BLU. The idea behind the collaboration was to create an atmosphere that immerses the viewer into a synaesthetic experience made of sound and visual fragments. By translating Boske’s technique of visual assemblage into a sonic composition, NAKANO BLU combined the recordings collected by Kim during her production process.

Transcendence – outside time
Kim Boske & Valérie Belin at FLATLAND

07/11/20- 19/01/2021

Transcendence – outside time is the title of the new exhibition at FLATLAND; a duo-exhibition with Valérie Belin (1964, France) and Kim Boske (1978, The Netherlands). The meticulously crafted images of both artists are united by the subject of exploring transcendence. Belin and Boske each approach photography as a material, rather than a medium, placing subjects out of context and time. They strip away the function of representation and search for realities beyond the signified. Their work can be described as trans-semiotic: they use iconic signifiers to challenge the expectation of the viewer and let us rethink the way we inhabit the world. The known categories that normally equip our gaze obtain new meaning, causing their images to dance with transversal energy.

Valérie Belin is one of the most celebrated French photographers working today. Initially influenced by various minimalist and conceptual tendencies, Valérie Belin became interested in the photographic medium in its own right; this is at once the subject of her work and her way of reflecting and creating. Light, matter and the “body” of things and beings in general, as well as their transformations and representations, constitute the terrain of her experiments and the world of her artistic ideas.

Known for her photography-based works on nature, Dutch artist Kim Boske treats nature only as a concept. Through her composed images of different visual time fragments, Kim Boske searches for an autonomous image that represents a state of constant change. In her view time itself is a structure made up of smaller, differentiated structures, just as reality is an unlimited field of differentials, which moves disorderly alongside each other. Positioned vertically, Kim Boske's new photobased work Akui Gawa demonstrates several vanishing points in the river to differentiate scenes and to suggest heavy streams of water, disappearing amidst whitish irregular areas, only to reappear as effervescent currents.

For this show the gallery has chosen to present very large format prints of both Valérie Belin and Kim Boske. For example the works from Belin's China Girls are 173 x 130 cm and the Akui Gawa by Kim Boske measures 282 cm height and 94 cm width.
The large sizes enhance the experience of being detached.

As part of the effort to ensure that visitors, artists and staff are safe,
FLATLAND will temporarily receive visitors by appointment only.

Paris Photo Postponed
12/11/2020- 15/11/2020

The 24th edition will be postponed to November 11 to 14, 2021, when it will open at the newly constructed Grand Palais Éphémère on the Champ de Mars.

As the leading international fair dedicated to the photographic medium, FLATLAND was invited to show the new works by Jasper de Beijer, Kim Boske and Paolo Ventura.

Het Parool, HOU VOL
30 May 2020

My new work Moving Flowers #1 was published on Saturday 30th May on the frontcover of Dutch newspaper Het Parool as part of the HOU VOL (“Keep Faith”) series, a tribute of the newspaper to all of those who have to cope with the devastating effects of Covid-19.

In the midst of our global communal quarantine, Boske returned to her studio and archive to create new work that resonates in this current moment. Her new work is a ‘collaboration’ between 17th century Master Paintings, freshlyfound weeds and meadow flowers, and the circulation of natural indigo fermentation in the shape of a flower.

Flatland Booth C01
Flatland is excited to participate again at Art Brussels Art Fair. At the annually held contemporary art fair in the capital of Europe, Flatland’s booth comprises of a quartet of artists: Kim Boske, Jasper de Beijer, Stelios Karamanolis and Guy Yanai. While the artists create significantly diverse work, the selection of works shown at Art Brussels collectively touch upon the same associative theme: 1870 – 1930. The works recall the fresh forms and procedures of artistic movements from this period, between abstract and illusionistic dream imagery, but in favour of imagery charged with meaning.

Flatland announces representation of Dutch artist Kim Boske
January 17, 2019

Flatland is pleased to announce Kim Boske (1978, Hilversum) joins the gallery.

Director Fiona van Schendel: ‘I have wanted to work with her for many years; I enjoy how her images are built up layer by layer, using a collage technique, of different shots in time; the result is so clever. We look forward to sharing Boske’s work with our strong Dutch audience but also with a wider international clientele.”

In the footsteps of the pioneers
To this day, nature has remained a prevalent and popular subject in photography, which is why the Nederlands
Fotomuseum will also be dedicating a small part of the exhibition to contemporary photography. In this
exhibition, the museum will not be presenting nature photography in the literal sense of the word, but will show
the work of artists and photographers that reflects on how we interact with nature. The exhibition will display
recent work by Kim Boske (1978), Charlotte Dumas (1977), Anne Geene (1983), Erik Kessels (1966), and Luuk
Wilmering (1957).

All my futures and pasts
Aando fine art, Berlin
24/10/2015- 04/12/2015

AANDO FINE ART is pleased to present the second solo show of Dutch artist Kim BOSKE in Berlin. BOSKE’s botanical imagery conveys the expressive qualities of depth and motion through merging realities. Time becomes an apparent and essential question to in her work through emerging discrepancies in each layer. In addition to her nature-based photographic works, All my futures and pasts includes new photo and video works inspired by 17th century Dutch still-life paintings.

Originally photographs, BOSKE layers and animates these images, creating a video work. From video she dissolves 30 video-stills, bringing the subject back to its media origin: photography. Through this process, she is both decoding and reanimating the stiff moments of still-life artwork. The artist has developed her way of working with multiple layer techniques by adding various communication devices such as books, photography, and video.
