ROOM 561 MISHMASH

Dutch artists Henk Bezemer and Frank van Oosten have been working together from the early nineties under the common name Mishmash from their studio located in the center of Rotterdam. The artistic duo started their respective careers as actor and dancer and then switched to designing settings and costumes which eventually led to their art and

interior design. It is obvious they are guided by their curiosity, enthusiasm and opportunities that came their way. So they have cooperated with architects, photographers, theatre-makers, interior designers and their art has been exhibited in several leading galleries.

 

The unique assemblages are very popular amongst collectors. Mishmash collect a mixture of stuffed animals, marble objects, steel and copper parts of tools, antique appliances, jewels or distinctly expensive materials, to then dismantle the lot and make a new piece of art.

 

For Mishmash there is no hierarchy in materials. They are equally valuable and chosen exactly for their esthetics, emotional charge or brute force. The new creations made from this are delicate assemblages that remind you of

antique showpieces or fetish statues. For their paintings Mishmash always chooses a style that fits with the theme that is on their minds at that moment. That could, for instance, be city life or the effects of the weathering of materials, or simply inspiration from their travels or from nature. 

 

Work of Mishmash can be viewed in concert hall De Doelen and the World Museum in Rotterdam, the town hall in Ridderkerk and Nissewaard. Every year their work is on display in various group exhibitions, events and art fairs.
