Daniel Kruger at Galerie Rob Koudijs
Being born in South Africa where Dutch is still a native language, Daniel Kruger is familiar with the concept of the 'voorkamer' (frontroom). It meant the special room in the house, usually at a farm or mansion, which was only used for entertaining important guests. In this way the FrontRoom at Galerie Rob Koudijs
in Amsterdam supplied not only the title, but also a fitting location to welcome Kruger as a new artist in the gallery.
The presentation proceeds Kruger's retrospective exhibitions in Leipzig, Pforzheim, Hanau and Den Bosch from December 2014 onwards giving an exciting overview of 40 years of his art jewellery. Do not miss to take a glimpse at Daniel Kruger's recently released monograph Between Nature and Artifice!
