Fragmented Surreality is an exhibition taking its cue from Animamix, an international artistic style inspired by computer animations, comic (cartoon) figures and fantasy worlds. The Wereldmuseum Rotterdam is showing more than 100 artists working in this genre in the exhibition Future Pass, which runs until 11 March 2012.

Fragmented Surreality features our current artist in residence, Yoshiyuki Koinuma (JP) (JN), and shows the development of his work since his presentation at the First Floor in May 2011. The work is larger and has an even more multifaceted visual language. Through the application of mixed techniques (collage, print, acrylic paint, small objects) he paints a surreal fantasy world, seemingly in outer space or underwater.

The drawings of Pim van Halem (NL) are worlds for the viewer to wander. They are developed on rolls of paper, books or in series on loose sheets. His primary motivation is the curiosity of what his drawing hand creates when left to wander over the paper. His recent ink-drawings seek figuration in the coincidental forms of ink-spots, resulting in densely populated landscapes typical of his work.
