Extravaganza Eleonora Stol, Carmen Schabracq, SistaazHood, Jan Hoek & Duran Lantink

Gallery Fleur & Wouter makes an ode to the extravagant personalities of artists and their models. From March 12 the exhibition Extravaganza will show photographs of activist, transsexual sex workers that Jan Hoek and Duran Lantink made with SistaazHood juxtaposed with explicit paintings by the flamboyant diva Eleonora Stol. Carmen Schabracq shows an installation with masks inspired by cultures from all over the world.

The paintings of the flamboyant Eleonora Stol (1946) are about sexual intrigues with Mediterranean men, her fascination with tango and flamenco, and a belief in divination and astrology. It was the fascination for Eleonora's special art and stories that made Fleur and Wouter decide to make exhibitions together. This exhibition is a tribute to Eleonora and the extravagant people we meet through the gallery.

Carmen Schabracq has been researching masks and the rituals for which they are used for ten years. For this research she travels all over the world. The exhibition includes an overview of her masks, including the latest: a mask inspired by her stay in the Vincent van Gogh residency in Zundert. Also on display are masks she made during and after her residency in Mexico City. Here Carmen dived into the Day of the Dead, on which the deceased return to earth to celebrate with their living loved ones. In her art she combines stories, myths and traditions like these with her own life and experiences. In this way she creates stories which she uses to create masks and performances.

Sistaaz of the Castle

The project Sistaaz of the Castle is a collaboration of Jan Hoek (1984) and Duran Lantink (1987) with SistaazHood, an organisation for trans sex workers in Cape Town, South Africa. The Sistaaz are fierce activists - proud to be trans, proud of their work and even prouder of their great sense of style. Together they created a series of photographs and a fashion collection based on the girls’ appearance and their ability to turn whatever they find into the most exuberant outfits. So far, this has resulted in an activist fashion show presented during Amsterdam Fashion Week, a photo exhibition at Foam, and a publication.

For this exhibition Jan chose ten photographs from the series and made special frames, which he decorated, together with Simon Marsiglia, with objects that are characteristic of the Sista being portrayed.

With the proceeds of the sales, Jan, Duran and the Sistaaz want to realise a long cherished dream: a fashion show in Cape Town.
