  • Duchamp’s “Three Standard Stoppages” Can be considered an important precedent for works that operate on chance and also generate a tension between the standard and the subjective measurements such as Stanley Brouwn ‘s “This Way Brouwn” and “1m 1 step”. #stanleybrouwn #thiswaybrouwn #chance #azar #hasard  #meter #standardmeasurements

  • Almost Venice time. So in anticipation of what @remy.jungerman and @iris_kensmil have in store for us in the Rietveld Pavilion, here is a beautiful stanley brouwn work (in the foreground) from the De Ateliers collection: an untitled and undated work, two aluminium strips measuring a step and a metre. Very curious as to how his absence will be felt, and how his legacy will resonate in the work of Kensmil and Jungerman.  #stanleybrouwn #labiennaledivenezia

  • Stanley Brouwn, Seven Objects each 1 ell, 1997
S.M.A.K collection exhibition Highlights for a future.

On this table the artist has brought together different objects, each with the length of 1 ell, an old measurement system based upon the length of the human arm between the elbow and the hand. This work is an example of brouwn’s 'scale objects', with which in the 1990s he not only presented his research into the relationship between subjectively and objectively measuring distance on paper, but additionally used sculptural presentation as well. The length of an ell varies between countries: a Flemish ell is 27 inches long, a Scottish 37 and an English 45. None of these 'official' ells corresponds to the actual length of these objects, which is 47 inches, or the 'stanley brouwn-ell', for which the artist’s body served as a standard.

Stanley Edmund Brouwn (Paramaribo, 25 juni 1935 – Amsterdam, 18 mei 2017) was een Nederlands conceptueel kunstenaar van Surinaamse afkomst.

  • Reading this book is both an exciting and humbling experience and so I always save it for mornings. “Tell Them I Said No” is a collection of Martin Herbert great essays on (female and male) artists who decided to quit the art world (context/bubble/machinery). Reading about the ones who had done it back in the 1960’s, 70’s, 80’s, makes one think about how these stories of withdrawal might have taken different turns under current circumstances. P.S. so far my favorite passage about the “final” withdrawal of Agnes  Martin: “In 2004 the artist who lived on rainwater and drove a white BMW, who painted abstract works all her life and then closed with a petite sketch of a pot plant, went into the light, leaving her accumulated light behind.” ✨

  • Stanley Brouwn was born in Suriname in 1935 and moved to Amsterdam in 1957. There he was introduced to the artist group Zero, which advocated, among other things, the rejection of the authorial signature, and started working on conceptual, participative pieces in which he would transfer the act of creation into the hands of the public. In one of his most well-known series for instance, Brouwn would approach strangers in the street and ask them to draw directions to various places on pieces of paper, which he then stamped with the words ‘THIS WAY BROUWN’. In keeping with this impersonal creative process, the artist remained very private for most of his career, never attending an opening, declining interviews and photographs or for his work to be reproduced in catalogues.
