Oomph 2019

In a way we consider the oomph the highest achievement in art. It’s the sensation, perhaps in the underbelly at first, when you encounter something that touches and convinces you in a very direct yet inexplicable manner, something that happens between the viewer and the work and which is undeniably there: a connection or intuitive/unmediated relation and entrance to the work, even if (or especially if) you cannot quite put your finger on it. 

Oomph features solo exhibitions by Ricardo van Eyk, Pedro Barateiro, Mickey Yang, Katja Mater and Leyla Aydoslu.

Contributors: Nickel van Duijvenboden & Marie Nerland, Erik Hagoort, Bas Hendrikx, Gerard Herman, Frank Koolen, Marijn Ottenhof, Piet Tuytel, Suzanne Wallinga, Nina Weijers.
