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.

OF WANDERING CONCRETE AND A DISPLACED CAMERA
“Man’s history is the story of his wanderings”
Eugene M. Kulischer, Europe on the Move: War and Population Changes, 1917-1947, (1948)
The definition of home varies greatly from person to person. What someone might call their home, could instead be the epitome of persecution and hostility for someone else; and, at the same time, the birthplace of an individual is not necessarily deemed a safe space either.
In the exhibition, both artists are presenting their own definition and interpretation of this concept and the different shapes it can take: concrete, wood, soil, plastic, natural fibres and construction materials are all blended together to tell a tale of two different countries and different experiences.

The theme of the body has always been very prominent in the artistic practices of the artists, whose pioneering will and instinct would urge them to discuss and show taboo aspects of its physicality and all those uncomfortable and unspoken issues that too often have been overlooked in the past.
With this premise, the exhibition wants to bring back the attention on this somehow still controversial narrative in order to offer a different and daring attitude over the many iterations and interpretations of this subject and how it is presented in the practice of modern artists.
“Counterbodies” will be one of a kind pop-up exhibition to showcase works of 12 international female artists from the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Crimea that share a common interest over the theme of the body. The show will feature both established artists and new voices in the contemporary art world, to offer the public both quality and freshness.
