Art Paris Art Fair 2017


Paris, France

Thu 30 Mar 2017 - Sun 02 Apr 2017

This is the first time for The Ravestijn Gallery at the Art Paris Art Fair. After Asia, Art Paris Art Fair continues in its commitment to bring to light emerging art scenes. This year Africa is guest of honour. The Ravestijn Gallery presents two young and upcoming artists with each their own link to Africa: Alinka Echeverria and Nico Krijno.

Alinka Echeverria (1981) shows her series ‘Becoming South Sudan’. Prior to South Sudan’s independence from the Republic of Sudan in 2011, forty years of internal conflicts and two protracted civil wars had permeated the history of the country. ‘Becoming South Sudan’ is a compelling and hopeful visual story of the event.

Nico Krijno (1981) grew up in a small town in South Africa, before leaving for Cape Town to pursue his career in photography and film. Krijno layers, clones and blurs his images distorting these forms that rebel in the rich history of still life.
