New art

You can now admire the exhibitions of Debby van Adrichem and Natasja Alers at WTC Amsterdam.

Faces Unknown

With her series “Faces Unknown”, Debby van Adrichem searches for the tension between the human and the abstract. To create her art, she starts by observing existing faces and decomposes them until pure humanity remains, regardless of gender, origin and culturally shaped appearances.

Her work is open for your own interpretation, from the feelings you get from a face to the stories that are evoked in your head.

Natasja Alers

Visual artist Natasja Alers (The Hague, 1987) graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in the field of ceramics in Amsterdam.

Alers makes casts of human body parts and constructs them into new sculptures, vases, reliefs, seating objects and installations. These artworks often address underlying social issues or inequalities in the way women are treated. Alers is one of the young female artists stepping out from the shadow of male-dominated history, taking a leading role in contemporary art.  She is just (2023) nominated for the Dutch ceramic art prize with exceptional quality.

Her work is quickly gaining attention and has previously been on display at Kunstmuseum The Hague, Design Museum Den Bosch, PAN Amsterdam, Art Zuid, Collectible Art Fair, Enter Art Fair and many more. Her work is presented at foreign exhibitions in cities such as Antwerp, Berlin, Brussels, and Copenhagen and in several important art collections.

Natasja Alers and her work regularly appear extensively in the media. From National TV (Avro Tros), national radio (including NPO Radio 4 Op Het Oog van Morgen, Vroege Vogels NPO1 BNN/VARA, Q-music Radio), and national newspapers such as Trouw, Volkskrant, and a full-page article in AD ( March 2022). One of her works was also chosen in the 2023 National Art kalender. Leading interior design magazine ”Residence” featured a full page interview with Alers and photo’s of her work (feb 2022).
