EUROPA is the first solo exhibition in an Italian institution of the Dutch artist Remco Torenbosch. It is the result of a three-month residency in Bergamo for the project entitled The Blank Artist in Residence – Fondazione Banca Popolare di Bergamo, which has been conceived by the no-profit association The Blank in collaboration with GAMeC and the Accademia Carrara di Belle Arti of Bergamo and realized thanks to the support of Fondazione Banca Popolare di Bergamo, the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Milan, and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Rome.

In the courtyard and glass pavilion of the GAMeC but also in several locations in the city of Bergamo, Remco Torenbosch presents a critical variety of situations and thoughts. The works are a reflection on the political and socio-economic changes to which Europe has recently been subjected. In this, Torenbosch investigates the language and manifestations through which a community and continent declares, represents, and questions itself through the consciousness of contemporary and historical references. Within this research, he tries to distil the situation as a return to a more human scale and perspective by underlining the importance of care and action.

Torenbosch explores social conditions by focusing on relations and gestures in the public area within different cultural contexts, contextualizing and recontextualizing them into physical and non-physical matter. With its humanistic orientation and formal qualities, his work probes the scope and complexity of reality itself.

Remco Torenbosch (b. 1982) studied at the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin. Torenbosch’s work has recently been shown at De Vleeshal Middelburg, Kunstraum Innsbruck, Stroom Den Haag, SoundArtMuseum Rome, and The Kitchen139 Project, a collaboration between Casco Utrecht and W139 Amsterdam.
