Located at the Amsterdam RAI, PAN will take place from Sunday 20th of November till Sunday 27th of November, with a special preview on Saturday 19th (VIP invitations).
PAN Amsterdam will celebrate its 35th anniversary as the Netherlands’ leading art, antiques and design fair from Sunday 20th to Sunday 27th November. Showcasing 125 art & antique dealers and galleries ranging from familiar PAN favourites to exciting newcomers the fair will offer a wide and diverse offering of art, antiques and design from home and abroad.
The work ‘June’ from Valérie Belin‘s latest series ‘Modern Royals’ will be one of the highlights of the presentation by FLATLAND .This new series comprises eleven portraits of women, fictional characters who are nevertheless designated by their first names, posing seated on a sofa. The title of this series suggests that the figures might be celebrities or “worldly women,” meant as illustrations for a romance novel. Each portrait represents a different personality, altho the model is the same in every picture, the makeup and looks vary in a way that gives the impression of looking at different women. Paradoxically, this imbues the portraits with a mixed impression of strange singularity and similarity.
