This black and white photo was taken of an installation Hannes van Es made as part of his solo exhibition at Galerie van Gelder ‘Werken op papier: 1982 – 1987’. For the first time he used four Vanes acrylic paint cans as weights, placed at the corners of a paper floor work that he had covered with blobs of black Vanes paint. The latter was specifically made by a Spanish company for the purpose of his thick layered paintings.

photo: K. van Gelder

After his works had been installed in GvG (notice the dusty knees of his trousers) on Saturday 10 June 1986 Hannes van Es requested me to take a picture of him under a sculpture named “Vehicle” (1986), made of iroko wood, ivory, gold, silver, resina and lava granite. A small sterling silver crown above the artist’s head was the basic idea of having this photo taken. KvG

Valérie Belin’s (1964) photographs objects, such as glasses, silverware, Venetian mirrors, car motors, or animal carcasses. And also portraits. The concept of her method is simple; taking a photograph is a matter of light and exposure, then the subject seems to change of character.

The portrait photograph ‘Black Woman II’ by Valérie Belin shows a young woman with a remarkably smooth face. How is it possible that someone is made up so smoothly. Later I was told that this is the head of a mannequin made up as faithfully as possible as a human being. Every time I look at it I must try hard to see it as a doll with a wig and face paint. Odd.

It is remarkable that Hannes van Es entitled the photograph as a ‘Selfportrait’. At the back side an ink stamped address shows the name C.W. van Vlijmen, who married ceramist Lies Ram on 27 augustus 1959. Further details about the photographer have not been found.

The artist’s book “Five Found Photos” includes a short text by Geoffrey Hendricks:
‘Last summer in Germany, rummaging through flee markets, I collected some old postcards and photographs. The collection was made casually just picking out what struck my fancy. One night I noticed certain photographs were of same people. Other cards seemed to go together because of similar structural elements. I began to group and regroup the material, pairing images visually, narratively, and numerically, seeing contrasts and similarities of form, subject, location, time, or emotion. Sometimes there were surprises. These five cards are one distillation from this process. They might imply a story, or a dream, perhaps a souvenir of a summer abroad. They are for reflection”
