September 6, 2018 (New York, NY) – JanKossen Contemporary is pleased to present Dialogue, a two-person show featuring German artist Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer and American Troy Simmons, on view from September 6, 2018 – October 8, 2018. Although visually both artists appear to be radically different, from Simmons’ bioorganic and deconstructive aesthetic in contrast to the precise geometric clean lines of Schmitz-Schmelzer, both artists carefully engineer each of their works; For Simmons this involves building and constructing his pieces and then breaking the forms out of the concrete. Inversely, Harald Schmitz-Schmelzer’s process involves freeing the resin sculpture from the constructed molds he crates.

About JanKossen Contemporary

JanKossen Contemporary, founded in 2009 by Dr. Jasmin Kossenjans, is an international dealer of contemporary art representing artists working across disciplines. Its principal focus is the representation of an international group of contemporary artists whose diverse practices include painting, drawing, sculpture, video, large scale installation, and performance. Aside from its represented artists, the gallery collaborates directly on exhibitions and projects with other artists and guest curators. The gallery is committed to presenting its artists’ work in an international context and to firmly establishing their contributions to the cannon of art history. Gallery artists are in the collections of, and have been part of exhibitions at, many museums around the world. Their works have been widely published as artist monographs, in art journals, and among critical theory texts. The gallery operates in Basel, Switzerland; Venice, Italy; New York, NY; and will open a new exhibition space in Hong Kong in 2019.
