Exhibit: Pakjekunst september 21-22-23

Everything is happening all at once: this month I will be exhibiting my work in THREE art shows.
First one that is coming up will be ‘Pakjekunst‘ – inspired by the German ‘Kunstautomate’. In this nationwide project a whole bunch of cigarette machines will be spread around the country and filled with tiny boxes of real art, no bigger than the size of a cigarette pack.
I will be exhibiting 20 completely new pieces: abstract experimental comic books. This brings me back to how I started out in art originally, as an abstract painter. Each book contains hand-painted and hand-drawn abstract stories of 8 pages each, where a shape starts out as a complete whole, then gets into a formal crisis and eventually explodes and disappears. Because Life is entropy. For only 4 euros you can buy yourself a pack with real art! Pull that vending machine handle!
All booklets have a title with the word ‘Pain’ in it. So there is “Triangle pain”, “Square pain”, “Circle pain”, “Shape pain”, “Line pain”, “Gender pain”, “Sex pain”, “Wonder pain”, “Virtual pain” and “Wisdom pain”.
All of the works are signed with my name Jiro Ghianni and an autograph.

Kunstuitleen site and info 
Facebook page for Rotterdam artists is here.
Opening event in Rotterdam 21-22-23 september.

Here are some excerpts from six of the booklets:

“Pakje Kunst® is een initiatief waarbij kunstenaars uit Rotterdam Noord onder de aandacht gebracht worden door de verkoop van unieke kunstwerken ter grootte van een pakje sigaretten uit een oude mechanische sigarettenautomaat. In een doosje kan je iedere kunstvorm tegenkomen. Je trekt een Pakje Kunst voor €4,- uit de automaat, die in het kader van Blik in de Wijk Liskwartier te vinden is bij café Ollie op de Rodenrijselaan. Pakje Kunst is een initiatief van Ro-Nalt Schrauwen, beeldend kunstenaar uit Tilburg en geïnspireerd op de Duitse Kunstautomat.”
