Setting up at Factory Fresh

Selecting artwork for the show: Boris and Isabel at Factory Fresh.

The sun has returned. The snow is melting, and that was a lot of snow ... We started setting up the exhibition at Factory Fresh Gallery yesterday. A long day with Boris Hoppek and Alex Diamond working away on brand new works for their show "DAMAGE:CONTROL" (opening Friday, March 5th, 8-11 pm). Today we hope to finish the whole thing, so we can enjoy a day off tomorrow before we prepare the booth for the VOLTA NY art fair, which will open on thursday. 

Added a few images below, and for more information on our upcoming activities in New York please check these links:

In the heart of the snow storm.

Room with a view: picture taken from the window of our apartment in Manhattan.

After 20 hours of travelling (waiting everywhere: 4 hours in London Heathrow, 2 hours at NYC immigrations, for taxis, and another 2 hours in massive traffic jam's etc.) we arrived safely at Factory Fresh Gallery last night. A snowstorm is slowing down New York, and there seems to be no end to the snow pouring out of the grey sky. 

New York, so quiet.The view from our apartment is breathtaking: the city lies under a thick white blanket, and our neighbourhood is so typical New York it almost hurts (no, it doesn't; for us, this is almost a romantic tourist experience you cannot plan for). The flat is basic, but very nice, and it has this gorgeous large living room with seven windows opening up to the street panorama.  

We'll be out of our cozy home soon though to meet with Boris Hoppek and Alex Diamond, the protagonists of our show with Factory Fresh Gallery (opening next Friday, March 5th), and buy art supplies. Then it's off to Factory Fresh, to start setting up the exhibition. 

If you feel like reading a longer feature about our travels to New York's art fairs since 2007, I just posted a new article over at small-things.eu. Click here to read it.

No sleep till Brooklyn

While we are packing our bags for our annual New York trip to the art fairs, we are also busy on creating this new website. It has been a while since our last relaunch (2005? 2006?), and not only did the web change dramatically since then, but so did we. And I am not talking about grey hair and getting older ...

... it was about time. Full stop.

Browsing through the new site, you will see that we will continue with the flexibility and interactivity our web appearance has always provided. heliumcowboy has been writing a blog as the main news feed on the site since the beginning in 2002 (yes, the site was up before we held the key to the gallery in our hands), and we want to continue with this tradition. It is simply the easiest way to keep you updated about what we're up to at the moment.

Everything else will come along the road: This new site deserves to grow natuarlly, and besides new features (or filling in blanks) we will also try to get our huge backlog of photos and the documentation of our past ventures onto the site. For the time being, we'll start with the "basics", which should be enough to keep you entertained for a while.

This Thursday we'll open our suitcases again - showing Boris Hoppek solo at the VOLTA NY art fair (Mar 4 - 7, 2010), and partnering up with the FactoryFresh Gallery in East-Williamsburg for a double show by Boris and Alex Diamond ("DAMAGE:CONTROL", opening Mar 5, 2010 at 8 pm).  

We'll keep you posted here. And via Twitter and Facebook, of course. Hopefully you like our new site, and don't hesitate to give us direct feedback by commenting, 'cos now, at heliumcowboy version 3.0, you can.
