EkpeyongAmsterdam until 11/7/2009 Galerie Alex Daniels – Reflex Amsterdam  Weteringschans 83 . 1017 RZ The Netherlands “haute nature – haute couture”  One of characteristics of the Western man is his fascination with primeval cultures. Since the voyagers in the 14th century up till now, five centuries later, the globe has been explored over and over again, by modernists like Picasso and Braque and ethnic fashion studies by Irving Penn, by contemporary mass tourism to exotic places, exposed on World Fairs and in popular magazines like National Geographic.  In the -primitive’ man we admire all those things we have lost – or imagine to have lost – in our much too industrialized society: A life with the nature, simplicity, and a direct link to the supernatural. You would think that the army of explorers, photographers, cinematographers and anthropologists that have visited faraway nations by now would have combed out the exotic world, described, unraveled, mapped and recorded it entirely.  A year ago Galerie Alex Daniels became acquainted with Galembo’s work, and we are proud to present her first solo show in Europe. At the opening of the exhibition a special limited edition consisting of a handmade box with two original colour photographs will be presented (limited edition of 60). (Image: Ekpeyong)
