Viewing Room: AVAF, Adè Fontó Aquedando Forte

AVAF (Assume Vivid Astro Focus) was founded by Eli Sudbrack (b. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1968) in 2001. AVAF occasionally morphs into a duo with Paris-based artist Christophe Hamaide Pierson (b. Paris, 1973), who also develops AVAF’s exhibitions on his own. AVAF also morphs into a collective sometimes, depending on the different projects they are involved in. For HENZEL STUDIO, AVAF re-appropriated one of their paintings made on corrugated kraft paper. AVAF has had solo shows at major institutions such as Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow and Casa Triângulo, São Paulo. Collected by Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York.

ANDY WARHOL: The Marilyn Maquette: Obscure, Unknown… And Iconic (Past exhibition)

2 Apr – 21 Jun 2021
Curated by Joakim Andreasson
Realized by Calle Henzel


The exhibition ANDY WARHOL: The Marilyn Maquette: Obscure, Unknown… And Iconic, brings to light one of Warhol’s most obscure and unknown works, while paying homage to his most iconic and popular subject; Marilyn Monroe. The exhibition features nine handmade rugs by Henzel Studio (Est. 1999, Sweden) created in close collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Alongside these are virtual replicas of fourteen original Warhol paintings made available by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, further contextualizing the artist’s accomplishments of both replicating, abstracting and deconstructing the recognizable subject.
