The Story behind the Art

The Fine Art Story 'Le Voyage' (French for: The Journey) is about the look I saw in the eyes of refugees before they took a perilous boat trip from Libya or Turkey. A look that didn't change once they arrived in Italy or Greece and realized that the "Promised Land" might not be as welcoming and safe as they had hoped.

'Le Voyage' is part of the series 'Reconstruction of a Past Still to Come'.

Fine Art Story

Solo Exhibition Amsterdam | 'Thuis aan de Amstel'

"The work of Alexander Koning can be interpreted as a continuous travel report along inner paths and worldly problems. On the one hand, it is a translation of the impressions he gains during his profession as a cameraman in many global disaster areas and on the other hand a reflection on the repercussions existence has on his own consciousness. A search for genuine answers in which he does not hesitate to consider himself, and the society around him, critically."

It is safe to say the exhibition 'Strangers I Know' hosted by 'Thuis aan de Amstel' summer 2018 was a great success. After witnessing some frantic double biddings and long time aficionados rushing to collect their favourite work we closed the show with a remarkable number of 28 sold works.
