Outsider Art Gallery
The gallery is open Thursday – Sunday 12 – 17 hrs
Froukje Klickermann + Amber Sabajo2-10 – 15-11-2020
Froukje Klickermann and Amber Sabajo put people at the center of their art. For their narrative works they draw inspiration from existing images.
Froukje Klickermann collects portraits and random images from magazines and newspapers. She recontextualizes these figures, combining them to suggest apparent familiar relationships and create stories. Sometimes these portraits also become an object or part of another figure, such as a bead necklace or an eye.
Her realistic paintings create a sense of alienation, existing between the recognizable and the impossible.
Amber Sabajo is inspired by ancient myths and Biblical stories, digging through the internet and art books for landscapes that match the atmosphere that she has in mind.
Female figures, men or children wander these dramatic environments, tiny and insignificant, as if the world has only just been created and they are the only inhabitants.
Outsider Art Gallery
In the Outsider Art
Gallery changing exhibitions of well-known and less known outsiders from the
Netherlands and abroad take place. You will find paintings, drawings, prints, ceramic
statues, sculpture, collages, photos and textile art. All works are for sale,
the entrance to the gallery is free.
The Outsider Art Gallery is founded in 2016 by Cordaan care organisation in cooperation with the Hermitage Museum Amsterdam and Museum het Dolhuys Haarlem.
The art in the Outsider Art Gallery is often unconventional. Most the artists have an intellectual or mental disability. They are not concerned with commercial targets and their works do not reflect current trends in art. The art comes bubbling up from within – it is in their minds and just needs to come out. Their work is fascinating, versatile and very pure. The Outsider Art Gallery offers a fully-fledged art platform for these colourful artists, not inside the walls of a care organisation, but rather in an inspiring museum environment.
Outsider Art StudiosCurrently a group of 15 artists is at work in the Outsider Art Studios, located above the gallery. They are accompanied by professional artists and pedagogical employees and work on their own art: painting, drawing, print making and digital media. In the studios companies or groups of individuals can also attend art workshops led by an outsider artist.
