Shinya Nakazato “Somewhere in Between”

26 May – 29 July 2018

 

While TIME & STYLE provides commercial space for interior design and products, it also displays contemporary artwork. The premises feature exhibitions of paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations created by artists who continuously produce artwork with a unique perspective, regardless of current trends, including young Japanese and mid-career artists.

Now, TIME & STYLE Amsterdam will host the exhibition “Somewhere in Between” by photographer Shinya Nakazato.

A photograph that resembles a painting at first sight; this rendering holds an allure that can only be expressed through photography.

 

“An artist working in his studio”

This concept has been the inspiration for my recent work, where I painted fragments of images on glass plates and arranged them in an area, seeking to create a unique pictorial space. Sometimes these spaces contained concrete aspects within a multi-dimensional perspective – the terms ‘diorama’ and ‘still life’ would both be correct in describing them. Photography brought these perspectives together to form one cohesive image.

Lately, I have taken to printing these images and further colouring them with paint. As the representation of a real-life place, the photograph forms a vital structure for the painting, the foundation on which a pictorial space from a different perspective unfolds. By fusing these elements in different layers, I hope to achieve a new form of spatial expression.

Shinya Nakazato

 

We aim to create a place where Japan, the Netherlands and many other countries truly intersect through real life culture and hope this will lead to the understanding and improvement of life culture for everyone.

Since opening in March of 2017, we have made use of our location at the historical monument Bureau Raampoort to create a place where Japanese and Dutch cultures intermingle through the display of Japan-made furniture and tableware, contemporary art exhibitions and live music events.

As a token of our gratitude for your continuous support in the past year, we would like to invite you to a two-day music event in celebration of our first anniversary, with performances by Japanese classical pianist Kenji Miura. Here you can enjoy exquisite music, Dutch historical architecture, and Japanese interior design.

Cuny Janssen photo exhibition “Japan Works”

1 March – 29 April 2018

Time & Style is pleased to invite you to the opening reception of Japan Works, photographs by Cuny Janssen at Time & Style in Amsterdam on Saturday 3 March from 4-6 pm. The exhibition was made in close collaboration with andriesse~eyck gallery.

Over the years the Dutch photographer Cuny Janssen (1975) has traveled to picture children and nature in places as diverse as India, Macedonia, Iran, South Africa, Japan, the US, and Italy. In these locations she has found young people who are strikingly individual but who share, no matter their circumstances, a perfection that suggests a common origin. Not afraid of beauty as given, luminous clarity applies both to her pictures of people and of nature. She works with a 4 x 5 inch plate camera and her series resulted in exhibitions and more than 10 photo books. Japan works shows a selection of photographs from the Japanese series Amami and Yoshino.

Amami-Oshima is an island at the southernmost tip of Japan. At the invitation of a Japanese organization for their project “European Eyes on Japan” Cuny Janssen went to Amami in 2007 to portray the children, the landscape and the wilderness of this subtropical island. During a second stay in 2008 she completed the series. It resulted in her photo book Amami.

For at least 1400 years, the Yoshino region, in present-day Nara prefecture, has been considered one of the loveliest parts of Japan. The region has inspired countless authors, and poets in particular. Cuny Janssen visited Yoshino twice, finding inspiration in poetry and prose, chosen and translated by Jos Vos. It resulted in their anthology of Yoshino-related texts and monumental landscapes.

The installation of the modern but timeless objects and furniture from Time&Style and Cuny Janssens’ silent photographs and photo books in this historical building become a dialogue between east and west.

andriesse ~ eyck galerie is an contemporary art gallery located on one of the canals in the centre of Amsterdam and run by art historians Paul Andriesse and Zsa-Zsa Eyck. It represents Dutch and international artists. The gallery is known for its expertise in discovering artists and realizing platforms for them as well as for its broad experience in advisory for collecting art. Cuny Janssen is represented by andriesse ~ eyck galerie.

Bonsai for Modern Life

15 July 2017

2:00PM – 3:30PM

The art of bonsai lies within the careful pruning and cultivation of the tree over a long period of time. We endeavour to create harmony between traditional art, the beauty of our bonsai and our modern lifestyle.
For this occasion we invited Mr. Kato of the famous Kato Manseien garden, with whom TIME & STYLE has a longstanding relationship, to our store in Amsterdam. Mr. Kato will talk about how the philosophy and aesthetics of the bonsai could enhance our modern day life.
If you would like to learn more about bonsai or about the role of plants in modern interiors from a Japanese perspective, then please join us for this special occasion on 15 July from 2:00PM – 3:30 PM at Marnixstraat 148, Amsterdam.
Our staff is looking forward to welcoming you at our store.

SOUNDS OF SUMMER

NAOMI SNELL × TIME & STYLE
11.06.2017
Start : 4 pm

Starting June, every second Sunday of the month live music events will be held at TIME & STYLE Amsterdam to provide our visitors with a pleasant and relaxed Sunday afternoon.11 June, 4PM, our music room on the first floor will be filled with the warm and unique sound of the 21-year-old singer songwriter Naomi Snell, whom you might know from Giel Beelen’s 3FM talent show, which she absolutely rocked with her songs ‘No Difference’ and ‘My Own Way’.
Make sure you don’t miss out on this first edition of live music at TIME & STYLE Amsterdam and join us for a drink and some lovely music at Marnixstraat 148.

Iedere tweede zondag van de maand organiseert TIME & STYLE Amsterdam live music events om bezoekers een fijne, relaxte zondagmiddag te kunnen schenken.
Zondag 11 juni staat onze muziekkamer op de eerste verdieping volledig in het teken van de 21-jarige singer songwriter Naomi Snell. Deze jongedame ken je misschien al wel als één van de elf finalisten van Giels Talentenjacht en heeft ze al op menig festival mogen spelen. Ook heeft ze programma’s als De Wereld Draait Door bijgewoond en heeft ze meerdere malen bij 3FM in de studio gestaan.
Met haar warme, unieke stem en haar prachtige gitaarspel weet ze zowel soul- als popnummers feilloos uit te voeren. Dus kom zondag 11 juni langs voor een borrel of een lazy afternoon tea en fijne muziek bij TIME & STYLE Amsterdam.
