This week marks the opening of an exhibition showcasing the creative force of three Dutch artists, merging couture design, photography and painting. Celebrating over two decades of creative excellence in their respective fields, the exhibition offers a unique view of the artists’ interconnected and diverse works.
Peter George d’Angelino Tap, renowned designer based in The Hague whose artistic couture is showcased on international catwalks, and spans across theatre, opera and ballet, is spearheading the collaboration, where the creative outputs of all three artists including photographer Niek Verschoor and painter Malou Busser, will be showcased in the one exhibition for the first time.
“It is a privilege to share this rich collaboration highlighting these distinct creative passions, the diversity of which makes this exhibition so exciting. Three very different approaches to visual stimulation and creative manifestation – photographer, painter and designer, anchored in the multiple photo exhibitions, photo shoots and couture fashion where we’ve all had creative input at a cellular level,” said Peter George.
“I am honoured to play a part in this cross pollination with Niek and Malou, both of whom are timeless in their individuality. Together across the years, forged together at a time when artists could no longer embark on their bohemian government-sponsored way, we have always brought a deep understanding of the role we play as artists. This collaboration offers a valuable document of the creative journey we’ve taken, individually and together,” Peter George said.
Peter George’scomponent of the exhibition includes male and female couture designs, including his origami-like, multi-dimensional technique, with many of the materials designed and manufactured in his studio.Niek Verschoorwill offer a range of his leading photographic works, andMalou Busser’sworks will include a number of her most recognised and iconic paintings.
The exhibition opens on 17th of October and runs through to 24 November. It will be formally opened on the 20th of October by Ine Poppe. The exhibition takes place at KV2, Korte Vijverberg 2, The Hague.
