Paul Sietsema "Three Films"

Paul Sietsema "Three Films"

de Appel, Nieuwe Spiegelstraat 10, Amsterdam

Opening: Friday 18 April, from 6 pm onwards in de Appel

Curator: Ann Demeester (BEL/NL)

The American artist Paul Sietsema (Los Angeles, 1968) has earned a reputation during the last decennium with a refined cinematographic oeuvre of three films. Within the context of Sietsema’s first solo exhibition in Europe, the three works will be screened as a trilogy on the second floor of de Appel building. “Untitled (Beautiful Place)” (1998), “Empire” (2002) and the new production “Figure 3” (2008), represent three distinct phases in a conceptual artistic expedition through (art) history. Work by Paul Sietsema is currently also on show in a solo presentation at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (up to June 22th) and in the context of the 5th Berlin Biennial (till June 16th).
