1) Opening Exhibition Dutch Central Bank, Amsterdam
Opening Thursday June 9 from 4 - 5.30 pm in the artspace of the Dutch Central Bank.
Exhibition runs from June 9 - 22
Arthur Kleinjan is part of a group exhibition Amongst Treasures, composed by Scarlett Hooft Graafland. She collected works by artists that inspire her. The title is a direct compliment towards these fellow artists and of course the treasures being held in the Dutch Central Bank.
Arthur Kleinjan will present a work from the Giza series from 2006. In this ongoing project Kleinjan covertly takes pictures at touristic sites of tourists posing for their holiday snapshot. In this photo series, the pyramids of Giza (Egypt) are taken as the setting in front of which small, solitary human figures try to withstand the elements of time as they mark their future memory.

2) Collection of Isabelle & Jean-Conrad Lemaitre | Paris, Jeu de Paume
Monday June 13, from 7 - 9 pm, Jeu de Paume, 1 Place de la Concorde, 75008, Paris
If you happen to be in Paris on Monday June 13, from 7 - 9 pm. a viewing will be held at the Jeu de Paume. Multiple video's will be shown from the amazing Lemaître collection. The video Skipping by Arthur Kleinjan will be shown.
Skipping (2004) is an engaging video of a girl skipping rope while her father enthusiastically jumps alongside her, simultaneously- but without rope. Beautiful music compliments the slow and rhythmic movemengts. It is unlcear whether Kleinjan happened to stumble upon this scene or if it has been staged. A simple scene is transformed into an enigmatic sequence.
