Webinar - 1 - Concept in Imagination
Wednesday September 16, 2020
The webinars on the Wednesdays are part of the International Talent Program from BredaPhoto 2020 and for everyone to participate.
The International Talent Program includes the Academy Project in which 10 Art Academies from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Finland participate. Each Academy presents itself with a video during one of the webinars. In addition, there is the Support Program. For this program there is a shortlist of 9 candidates, of which 3 will be chosen on the 24th of October. During each webinar 2 pitches of the candidates will be shown.
During this programme we will discuss the creative process of two special artists on BredaPhoto: Raquel van Haver and Renée Paule. Both artists take full control in the creation of their images. How do they come up with their ideas and concepts, do they use a fixed method or not? And how do these artists themselves feel that their work fits the theme of BredaPhoto?
The Dutch artist of Colombian origin classifies her own work as noisy art with which she wants to give a voice to people on the frayed edges of society. She works in a multidisciplinary way, Van Haver collects the building blocks for her paintings, photo collages, drawings and other forms during long journeys in West Africa and South America. She was educated at the HKU in Utrecht and has had exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the BOZAR in Brussels and won the Royal Prize for Free Painting in 2018.
Fashion and art photographer Renée Paule focuses her work on creative processing of images. She photographs various models and makes editorial work for magazines such as Subbacultcha Magazine and Knack Weekend Magazine. Paule is currently studying at KASK, Royal Academy of Arts Antwerp.
