Alexander Blank
The Gathering
The animals gather. Thirteen in all. Not the most exotic or dangerous animals, simply the everyday ones that are part of our daily life. Yet it feels unsettling, threatening: What is the purpose of this gathering? A conspiracy? What draws them together? 
Alexander Blank creates abstracted animal heads with the greatest accuracy. He provides these sculptures with a matt black finish and a shining silver backing; with a pin at the reverse side they can be worn as a brooch. For Blank, who is studying in Munich, this gathering of animals represents his own onrushing generation, which demands a place alongside long-established artists.

For the year and a half that the gallery has been exhibiting Blank’s jewellery there have been continuous positive reactions. His multifaceted world of ideas has won over curators, collectors, students and jewellery wearers alike. Saturday, January 23, Alexander Blanks very first solo exhibition will open at the Galerie Rob Koudijs.
