Symbiosis II


Symbiosis II
Sculptures by Brigitte Wawoe
and Angel Luis de la Rosa
Photography by Paul Senders



Opening February 17


You are invited to Symbiosis II, showcasing a blend of mixed media stone sculptures by the dynamic duo, Brigitte Wawoe and Angel Luis de la Rosa. Building on the success of their first collaboration at Landhuis Bloemhof in 2022, Symbiosis II promises to be a visual feast for art enthusiasts.

This time around, the artistic synergy extends beyond Brigitte and Angel, with guest artist Paul Senders adding an unique dimension to the exhibition. Paul shows photographs of the surroundings of their inspiring studio. 

Symbiosis II: A symphony of stone, metal, wood and photography
Brigitte Wawoe and Angel Luis de la Rosa are both sculptors. Brigitte, known for her abstract creations from Tafelberg stone, joins forces with Angel, whose figurative work comes to life with metal and wood.
Their collaboration began in 2015 when Brigitte enlisted Angel's help in her workshop. What ensued was a remarkable transformation, leading to their joint venture in sculpture-making in 2017. The culmination of these three years of intense collaboration resulted in the 2020 exhibition 'Symbiosis' at Landhuis Bloemhof.

For Angel, working alongside Brigitte was a leap out of his comfort zone, shifting from figurative to abstract art. This creative process not only influenced Angel's approach but also clearly accentuated the unifying power of art, transcending individual differences in working styles, gender, age, and culture.

Joining this artistic symbiosis is Paul Senders, a multi-talented designer, artist, maker, and photographer. With his camera, Paul documented the creative haven around Brigitte’s workshop at the Curaçao Mining Company, offering a unique perspective on their artistic surrounding. A curated selection of these photographs is featured during Symbiosis II.

About the visionaries: Brigitte Wawoe, Angel Luis de la Rosa Gonzáles, and Paul Senders

Brigitte Wawoe
Born in Heidelberg, Germany, in 1939, Brigitte's artistic journey has spanned various continents. While currently residing in The Netherlands, she frequently returns to Curaçao, where her sculpture studio hides on the east side of the Tafelberg at Fuik Bay. A versatile artist, Brigitte's mastery extends beyond sculpture, encompassing media like painting and glass art. Her stone sculptures, characterized by abstraction and intuition, invite viewers to explore hidden forms. With exhibitions worldwide, Brigitte continues to captivate audiences with her ever-evolving artistry.

Angel Luis de la Rosa Gonzáles
Hailing from Santiago de Cuba, Angel's journey into the world of art began at the Academia de Artes Plásticas José Joaquín Tejada in Cuba. Specializing in sculpture and drawings, Angel's artistic exploration led him initially to embrace the versatility of wood. In 2009, he brought his skills to Curaçao, where he has since had solo exhibitions, collaborations with local artists, and made a mark in international exhibitions. Angel's introduction into the Dutch art scene in 2023 garnered attention, with work displayed at the 'Nationale Kunstdagen' in Gorinchem and PAN Amsterdam.

Paul Senders
A seasoned artist and designer, Paul's journey began at the art Academy in Tilburg and later the Academy for Industrial Design in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. His work, a harmonious blend of art and functionality, is mostly made with wood, metal, and synthetic materials. Paul is also a photographer, capturing the essence of artistic processes. His presence during Brigitte and Angel's working sessions resulted in a collection of evocative photographs that provide a glimpse into the creative setting that surrounds them while at work.

Visit Symbiosis II, where the artistic endeavors of Brigitte Wawoe, Angel Luis de la Rosa, and Paul Senders come together in a celebration of creativity, collaboration, and unique perspectives.

Angel and Paul will be at Landhuis Bloemhof on Saturday mornings.

Exhibition ‘Punda to Bloemhof, A Creative Odyssey’


Exhibition 'Punda to Bloemhof
A Creative Odyssey'
by Art Collective Piso SERØ


Opening January 10


‘Punda to Bloemhof, A Creative Odyssey’ features a vibrant tapestry of Curacao's artistic expressions with artworks by Alejandra Cijntje, Andrew Thodé, Christian Peralta, Kerr de Lanooi, Noni Madeleine, Pito Polo, Sandra Zegarra Patow and Tamira Koeiman. The art collective, known for its radical approach to art and community engagement, invites visitors to step into an immersive world where the boundaries of creativity are as fluid as the Caribbean Sea that surrounds their island home.

In the heart of Punda, Piso SERØ stands as a dynamic multidisciplinary collective, a haven for a diverse group of individuals driven by a shared passion for creativity. Located on the ground floor of Casa Moderna on Madurostraat, this multifunctional space, divided into a gallery and atelier, serves as a vibrant hub for cultural events. Their mission is to defy the conventional and to blur the lines between the artist and the observer, empowering every individual to find their creative voice.

The works of art in Punda to Bloemhof, A Creative Odyssey not only showcase individual talents but a collective journey into the essence of Piso SERØ itself. “The Creative Odyssey is more than a journey; it's a living, evolving entity that mirrors the diversity of the Curaçao community. As the lines between artists and the community dissolve, ordinary people become co-creators in a celebration of shared creativity, proving that in the world of Piso SERØ, creativity indeed knows no boundaries”, says Piso SERØ co-founder Christian Peralta.

The artists
Alejandra Cijntje 
(based in Curaçao)is a self-taught artist on a continuous journey of self-discovery. Her artistic research mainly focuses on nuances and archetypes present in the Caribbean human existence, emotions, and dynamics. This practice pushes her deeper into awareness of collective patterns, individualism, contemporary folklore, and symbolism. Cijntje participated in a few group exhibitions at Landhuis Bloemhof including ‘Lus riba Nanzi’ and ‘Art for the Roses’.

For Andrew Thodé (based in Curaçao), art has been an outlet and a tool for self-reflection through his struggles with burnout and depression. He works with mixed media, mostly acrylic paint and collage. His work serves as an instrument for engaging with and addressing pressing issues in society. Through his creations, he strives to evoke thought and inspire dialogue, using art as the aim of understanding each other and our differences better.

Christian Peralta (based in Curaçao / founder of Piso SERØ) is a versatile artist whose journey spans various creative disciplines - from poetry to music and visual storytelling. In recent years, he focused on visual art, particularly painting. With roots dating back to 2015 in the artist community, his work reflects a rich tapestry of experiences and collaborations. In 'Punda to Bloemhof, A Creative Odyssey,' he showcases the profound impact of community and invites viewers on a limitless creative journey. In the beginning of 2023 Peralta had a successful solo exhibition at Landhuis Bloemhof titled ‘Quit my job, paint your life’.

The central theme in the paintings of Kerr de Lanooi (a.k.a Sè, based in Curaçao/ co-founder Piso SERØ), revolves around celebrating black intellectuals. His work is a fusion of dreams, rebellious spirit, the more refined romanticized impressionism, and mystery. He continues to explore and express his unique perspective, bridging the gap between dreams and reality.

“Painting feels like a form of therapy for me”, says Noni Madeleine (based in The Netherlands). She explores themes such as her emotional realm, race, her experiences as a woman of color and generational healing. Integrating these themes into her art serves as a vessel to express herself and raise awareness about these issues.

PITOPOLO (based in Curaçao/ co-founder Piso SERØ) always had a curiosity for art and design. This love came to fruition once he joined the University of Curaçao. It was in that environment that he stumbled upon graphic design, photography and film. His work focuses mainly on human behavior, specifically the relationship between men and art. PITOPOLO has been participating in exhibitions at Landhuis Bloemhof for years. Most recent are ‘Unlocked’, ‘Lus riba Nanzi’ and ‘Sorry,...’.

Photography work by Sandra Zegarra Patow (a.k.a. DJ Veinte Uñas based in The Netherlands) is directed by her intuition, beliefs, and the connection she establishes with the subjects. This approach is not only based on how she develops her projects but also on how she directs her path in life. She gets fueled by her Peruvian roots and its influence on culture, traditions, and history. For this particular exhibition she is showing a collection that was shot during 2021 in Curaçao titled “Lunula; Uña i Kultura”. Lunula refers to the half circle we all have at the base of our nails.

Tamira Koeiman (based in The Netherlands) uses photography to explore her relationship with (black) men. The central theme in her recent work explores her love for them but also her profound struggle in connection to them. She is predominantly inspired by the Curaçao culture, the island’s surroundings in a specific sense and by the mystery of life in a broader sense.

Concert Mi T’ei


Mi T'ei
Crisèn i su 8.40 Band

Wednesday December 27
Doors open 7.00 PM
Concert starts 7.30 PM

With her forth concert 'Mi T'ei' (I am here) Crisèn shares her thoughts through music with her 8.40 Band. During her concert 'Mi T'ei' she will presents new songs like the title song 'Mi T'ei', dedicated to her father who passed away suddenly at the end of 2020. Also 'Boroto di Silensio' a new song, dealing with thoughts and feelings we would like to hide or ignore, but will haunt us if not dealt with.

"If you can't understand the message behind my song 'Mi ke bo komprondé' (I want you to understand), it's understandable we won't ever understand each other, you understand?"

Who is Crisèn? In her own words: "I guess you could say I'm a creatively crazy busy bee but never too busy for my loved ones. I love writing, acting, singing, swimming, reading, having conversations and connecting with people but also love quality time with myself every once in a while: I'm an extraverted introvert! I'm crazy about my dogs Pepo and Nala and love the tranquility of my home. I am not defined by solely my art but it's undeniably the most important channel for me to express, to reflect, to inspire, to teach, to share. I would love to travel more in the future and if you ever find yourself wondering what present to give me, well a book (preferably in Spanish or English), handmade herbal soaps, shower gels, fruits & veggies, all kinds of tea or whatever reflects that you 'took your time to watch or know what I really want or need', will do!"
