Chrysalid Gallery Logo

Chrysalid is a dynamic cocoon aiming at transforming the canons  around contemporary art and its market. It’s a conceptual and experimental gallery based in Rotterdam (the Netherlands) that actively promotes and collaborates with young and daring artists  from all over Europe. As a communal platform, Chrysalid wants to give the artists room to experiment, to grow in their vision and to fearlessly portrait reality through the insight of their unique practices. In this metamorphic framework, the individuals behind the idea of the gallery collaborate to reshape and broaden the narratives in contemporary art, making them more inclusive and representative of the multitude of details that existence is made of. Chrysalid is not a showbox. Chrysalid is a pulsating core of transformative energy.

24 April 2021 | 16 June 2021

Curatorial exhibition created by Marth von Loeben featuring the works of Jake Kelly and Miroslav Cukovic.

The works of Miroslav Cukovic explore the notions of language, structure, play and the space of in-between. Whether it is a print, artist book, collage, edition, object or an outdoor intervention, over the past 15 years, Cukovic has been developing an esthetic language that reflects his interest in poetic moment, labor intensive meditative & repetitive process as well as duality of inside vs outside. A good dose of playfulness and curiosity as well as the potential that the space-in-between holds is also of great importance to the artist practice.

Jake Kelly’s work manifests sculpturally through the use of humble materials such as string and wood. The use of democratised materials is significant as a statement for the accessibility of art for everyone. 

Kelly has appropriated these materials for the development of his own intuitive technique with a decade’s worth of refinement creating intricate networks of string and paint.


"The fifteenth edition of Foam Magazine’s Talent issue presents a selection of outstanding artists, each in their own way feeling the pulse of our times. This year’s common, underlying theme is a close, sharp look at one of the most important subjects, the human condition. While being born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, this issue is also a beautiful, hopeful and refreshing statement of the possibilities the photographic medium offers, and the exciting future ahead."
