About Borzo

Borzo modern & contemporary art is one of the oldest galleries in the Netherlands and is located in a canalside house, originally built in the 17th century. In 1932 Alexander Bodon remodelled the property into the “Nieuwe Zakelijkheid" functionalist style and in 2005 Wiel Arets brought it up to date while retaining the Bodon elements.

Borzo specializes in NUL/Zero, Minimalist and Conceptual art. Artists such as Jan Schoonhoven, Ad Dekkers, Carel Visser and Ger van Elk are represented in our collection.

One of the aims of our exhibition policy is to make the link between modern art from the recent past and contemporary art. Artists of today are "standing on the shoulders" of their predecessors, regardless of the considerable contrasts.

Exhibition 14 June - 5 July

SEELE is een serie zelfstandige, autonome tapisserieën, een fascinerende reeks,
uiterst persoonlijk, zonder concessies aan een opdrachtgever, architect of commissie.
Jongstra's creaties overstijgen op overtuigende wijze de status van toegepaste kunst.

 

SEELE is a series of free-lance, autonomous tapestries, fascinating and extremely personal, with absolutely no concessions made to any patron, architect or committee.

Jongstra's creations conclusively transcend the status of applied art.

Luis Tomasello, Six decades of Reflection

Tomasello behoort tot de internationaal belangrijke groep van ‘minimalisten’, de geometrisch-abstract werkende kunstenaars. Het onmiskenbaar eigen karakter van Tomasello ligt niet zo zeer in de vorm van zijn reliëfs, hun constructie of geometrische complexiteit, maar juist in datgene wat niet stoffelijk is: de indirecte atmosferische reflectie van licht en kleur, de ‘chromoplastic atmospheres’.

 

Tomasello belongs to the international distinguished group of minimalists, the artists working in geometric-abstraction. Tomasello's distinct, individual quality lies less in the form of his reliefs, their construction or geometric complexity, but rather in that which is intangible: the indirect atmospheric reflection of light and colour, the ‘chromoplastic atmospheres’.
