Taking inspiration from O’Hanlon’s Heroes’, a 14 room visual library of man’s journey through scientific discovery presented by museum TwentseWelle, in honour of celebrated author and adventurer Redmond O'Hanlon, Wunderkammer 2014, hosted by TETEM Art Space continues with a reinterpretation of the exhibition theme to fit a contemporary format. Whilst preserving the essential thematic and conceptual components of the original 16th Century ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’, Wunderkammer 2014 produces a physical actualisation of a collecting, thinking and reflection process to communicate, dissect and understand exactly how and what fascinates us.
While O’Hanlon’s Heroes’ and Wunderkammer 2014 both work with the traditional ‘curiosities’ motifs of science and the bizarre, TETEM’s latest exhibition dives right past mainstream science and into the murky depths of the mind and the human condition. Curator Ella Buzo has scourged the arts scene to compile a body of works representing our unconscious drives, ambitions, fears and vices as a species.
As in archaic fables and dream symbology, Wunderkammer 2014 is teeming with personified creatures going about their daily business of performing in eerie, nocturnal circuses, or absent mindedly snoozing on the job. Feeding our obsessions with dystopian futures are tactile artefacts from ghoulish civilisations beckoning our senses and imaginations with collections of glossy tribal masks, tools, and futuristic icon-like works imagining moments in a mysterious culture’s mythological tradition. Delve further into Wunderkammer 2014 to find flora and fauna from an otherworldly jungle, complete with a bizarre species’ entire taxonomy bottled and stacked, ready to be gawked at. Sublime multimedia tapestries, homemade clouds, time-defying photographs, wall hangings with hidden optical illusions and allegorical taxidermy arrangements including mechanical insects armed with warheads complete the diversity of TETEM’s latest exhibition and promise to artfully repackage and play us the anthems of the Renaissance; a rediscovering of the world and the deeper-self outside of old parameters.
DUO-EXHIBITION BY ZIMOUN & DAVID SCHEIDLER
04 July - 01 September 2013 in TETEM art space
This summer, TETEM art space is showing a duo-exhibition by the internationally renowned Swiss artist Zimoun, and German artist David Scheidler. The architectural installation by Zimoun, consisting of 100 cardboard boxes, dc-motors and cotton balls, creates an interplay between the artificial and organic, with an almost hypnotic effect. David Scheidler was inspired by the shape and sound of Zimoun’s work, making a sound installation using harmonious drone sounds and a kinetic wall sculpture inspired by the boxes. Both artists are fascinated by mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, industrial objects and technology. Zimoun and Scheidler’s works are always untitled. They interact with the viewer as an unique sensory experience. The exhibition is on view from 4 July - 1 September 2013. Click here for more information.
The exhibition UNTITLED. Zimoun & Scheidler is curated by Ella Buzo, owner Cabinodd and exhibitions crew member at TETEM art space.

NEW WORK BY MARK BEERENS FOR THE ARTERY SHOW
Cabinodd presents Mark Beerens’ newest work made for The Artery Show exhibition at the gallery. Mark Beerens takes his inspiration from metaphysical knowledge, architectural structures, art history and a current of modern images. In his paintings, stylistic elements from magical realism, suprematism and geometric abstraction often come together. He combines old and modern techniques in an attempt to create a new visual language. Typical of his paintings is a stratification and a need to create a synthesis between different eras and movements.
The painting on the left is titled ‘Sint Sebastian’, 78 x 97 cm, oil on canvas 2012 and is inspired by
a cut out of the painting ‘Sint Sebastian’ by Gerrit van Honthorst.
The painting on the right is titled ‘Deposition Vir Heroicus Sublimis’, 174 x 100 cm, oil on canvas, 2012 and is inspired by a combination of the painting ‘Vir Heroicus Sublimis’ by Barnett Newman and ‘Deposition’ by Rogier van der Weyden. Both paintings are currently available at Cabinodd gallery.

STARS ON CANVAS
Cabinodd artist Birgitta Sundström Jansdotter made her television debut on “Stars on Canvas,” together with the artists Emile van Dalen and Nicoline Heemskerk. All three artists were asked to create a portrait of the Dutch celebrity Linda de Mol. Emile van Dalen's realist painting was selected as the winner, and Nicoline and Birgitta's paintings were auctioned for charity. Brigitta's painting raised 6,250 euros for Stichting Heppie. The show aired on January 3rd, 2012, but you can still view it here (in Dutch only). Here are a few snapshots of the programme:
