X BANK is honoured to invite you to the opening of their latest
exhibition and the official Dutch premiere of ‘Corpus Dei'
by Dutch photographer Sabrina van den Heuvel,
opening July 26th, 17:30.
- Performances by Kiri Mioki -
- Curated by Edwin Becker, Chief Curator of Exhibitions, Van Gogh Museum -
On the eve of the Amsterdam Gay pride, Sabrina will present her first all male nude series
after showing the series at the Dutch University Institute for Art History in Florence (NIKI).
Sources of her inspiration were intimate poems by Michelangelo, dedicated to his lover,
and the fascinating dark-light contrasts of Caravaggio.
Just like in Sabrina's earlier photo project, "Van Gogh Black & White", emotional issues such as ecstasy, happiness and longing play a big part in Corpus Dei.
The series of photographs connects visual art, fashion and poetry to a total concept.
Sabrina van den Heuvel is a Dutch photographer, born in 1986. She’s attracted to classic black & white photography, music and fashion. In her work she combines those three elements with flair and passion. Her style is characterized by raw, moving images with strong contrasts.
Narrative, dynamic photographs with an obscure glamour. ‘Real moments of intensity’, spontaneous and speedy.
All works are on show and for sale at X BANK till the 18th of September.
