Gilleam Trapenberg will be showing his series New Suns during Manifestation #59: Keti Koti Westerpark X Buro Stedelijk X Kunsttraject. Trapenberg started the series in 2020 out of a longing and yearning to Curacao, the island he grew up on. The sun, palms lining pristine white sand beaches and an azure blue sea. However, this yearning manifested in a primarily embodied endeavor to depict Curaçao as a place of individuals with a distinct culture and character, imbued with history and future aspirations.  

With his series New Suns, Trapenberg questions the Caribbean sun as a symbol of exoticism, commercialism and tourism. He examines not only the attractiveness we connect to ideas of the Caribbean, but also helps us revisit stereotypical images that establish the notion of a utopic Caribbean paradise. Carefully nudging us to see how the island flourishes partially because of the sun, but the resulting economic prosperity does not always benefit the island residents. 

The suns captured through Gilleam’s lens are meticulously documented during his stays on Curaçao, where the creative process unfolds through digital manipulation, delicately adjusting colors and hues within the negatives. 

Trapenberg shot the New Suns on Curaçao and developed them in the Netherlands. Together, we are exploring ways to exhibit them in Amsterdam outside of the white cube and make them accessible to a wide audience that can admire the works 24/7. What might it mean to exhibit this body of work in the Staatsliedenbuurt, accessible day and night and in relation to Keti Koti. What might it mean to show this work not in a gallery, museum or project space but rather 24/7 in windows in the Staatsliedenbuurt?

Gilleam Trapenberg toont zijn serie New Suns tijdens Manifestatie #59: Keti Koti Westerpark X Buro Stedelijk X Kunsttraject. Trapenberg begon de serie in 2020 vanuit een verlangen naar Curaçao, het eiland waar hij opgroeide. De zon, palmen langs parelwitte stranden en een azuurblauwe zee. Dit verlangen uitte zich echter in een voornamelijk belichaamde poging om Curaçao af te beelden als een plek van individuen met een eigen cultuur en karakter, doordrenkt met geschiedenis en toekomstige ambities.  

Met de serie New Suns zet Trapenberg vraagtekens bij de Caribische zon als symbool van exotisme, commercialiteit en toerisme. Hij onderzoekt niet alleen de aantrekkingskracht die we verbinden aan ideeën over het Caribisch gebied, maar helpt ons ook stereotype beelden te herzien die de basis vormen van het idee van een utopisch Caribisch paradijs. Voorzichtig maakt hij ons duidelijk dat het eiland deels floreert dankzij de zon, maar dat de daaruit voortvloeiende economische welvaart niet altijd ten goede komt aan de eilandbewoners. 

De zonnen die door Gilleams lens zijn vastgelegd, zijn zorgvuldig gedocumenteerd tijdens zijn verblijven op Curaçao, waar het creatieve proces zich ontvouwt door middel van digitale manipulatie, waarbij kleuren en tinten in de negatieven subtiel worden aangepast. 

Trapenberg schoot de New Suns op Curaçao en ontwikkelde ze in Nederland. Samen onderzoeken we manieren om ze in Amsterdam buiten de white cube tentoon te stellen en ze toegankelijk te maken voor een breed publiek dat de werken 24/7 kan bewonderen. Wat betekent het om dit oeuvre in de Staatsliedenbuurt tentoon te stellen?

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate slavery and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Since we believe that Keti Koti should be a national holiday, we are closed on the 1st of July. We asked Lydiënne Albertoe to design a graphic work for this particular occasion. The work is placed on the door of our Central Space and the windows of the Studio Space.
