About The Artwork

Same cover, different title. Four books have been assembled in the readymade 'Untitled (Figure at a Window)’ all with the same painting as cover illustration. Independent of each other, the publishers have chosen to use this work by Salvador Dalí from 1925 as a front. Depicted in this realist painting is Salvador’s three years younger sister Ana María. It’s one of Dali’s best known and most important early oil on canvas works, which has been combined with various titles; from German novel to Swedish youth-book, from Spanish non-fiction to Dutch fiction. To what extent these books fit in with the special brother-sister relationship between Salvador and his younger sister Anna Maria, which became so disrupted after the publication of 'Salvador Dali Visto por su Hermana' (Dalí Seen by his Sister) that Dali even decided to end it, is the question. Although the power of this masterpiece seems ultimately proven as well, by the ease with which every appropriation of the image is averted. Despite the unique depiction being presented in a Warholesque manner as a repetitive series. The ready made 'Untitled (Figure at a Window)’ forms a continuation on the concept of my work ‘Untitled (Wanderer above the sea of fog)’ from 2018. 'Untitled II (Figure at a Window' has been exhibited at the Amsterdam Vrij Paleis in 2022.

Roberto Voorbij (1974) lives and works in Amsterdam, holds a bachelor degree in Visual Arts and Art History from the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and has attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he took classes from a.o. Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle during the late 1990s. Voorbij is a multidisciplinary artist, apart from working with ‘ready made’ materials, he works with 3D Software, (digital) collage and video. Besides (national) identity are public space and religion recurring themes in Voorbij's work. The latter interest is motivated by a Catholic upbringing, which contrasts with an ever-increasing secularization in the Netherlands. From this perspective also his 'Artist Portraits' can be interpreted - besides the clear reference to the art world - more spiritually. As a form of animism the question arises whether a work of art itself can become inspired, how the maker resonates and transforms into the creation he or she leaves behind. In addition to a representation by online gallery Saatchi Art, Voorbij is represented by Leontia Gallery in London. In 2020 his work was part of the International Biennial of Asunción, Paraguay. As part of a group show his short ‘Without clear purpose’ screened at Museum of the Moving Image, New York. The next year his short ‘Carte Blanche’ screened at BOMBA Gallery, Moscow. One of his Artist Portraits was part of the traveling group exhibition 'The World of Frida' in the United States until 2022. Further, from 2024-2027 his short ‘Carte Blanche’ will be screened in the elevators of citizenM, Austin, US.
