Finally, the secret is out and we are ready to present a new talented and upcoming artist duo at QLICK Editions. “The Masquerade Ball” will be the official launch of their presence at our gallery.
Djojo & Versteeg consists of two artists who formed a duo during their time in art school and is located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Rik Versteeg (26) graduated as a fine-art photographer in 2013 and Danny Djojosoedarmo (22) is a self-educated make-up artist and stylist.
Masquerade balls were a feature of the carnival season in the 15th century, and involved increasingly royal entries, pageants and triumphal marriage processions and other dynastic events of late medieval court life. Masquerade balls were extended into costumed public festivities in Italy during the 16th century Renaissance. They were generally elaborate dances held for members of the upper classes, and were particularly popular in Venice. In the 17th and 18th centuries masquerade balls became popular in Europe with sometimes fatal results. Guest could infiltrate events by wearing a mask, making them unrecognisable, and could pretend to be someone else.
Please be welcome for the opening of the show on December 10, from 18 – 20. The artists will be present.
