New acquisition H+F Fashion on the Edge (gift from the artist)
Recently Alet Pilon donated this 'Black Lady' from the series 'Not Yet' (2010) to H+F Fashion on the Edge. Alet Pilon has a longstanding fascination with dead animals. For many years she has incorporated feathers or pelts in still lifes and objects. ‘My work is about the balance of power between mankind and animals. I try to turn humans into animals and vice versa in order to establish a different balance of relationships.’ In her series ‘Not Yet’, often omits the truly animal elements. She thus creates remarkable objects that are simultaneously human and not human. Pilon makes still lifes with creatures that occupy the grey zone between life and death.

The ArtAids foundation was set up in 2006 at Han Nefkens’ initiative. ArtAids fights AIDS with the power of art as its most important weapon. ArtAids invites leading artists to produce work that is inspired by AIDS and related problems. These works of art are used to raise the public’s consciousness and to encourage their involvement.

Fundació Han Nefkens

The Han Nefkens Foundation is a private non-profit organisation that was set up in Barcelona in 2009 with the aim of promoting the production of contemporary artworks. The mission is to stimulate artistic creation in Barcelona by offering international artists an opportunity to create artworks and interventions in the city, and to promote other fields of contemporary creation.


Han Nefkens started to collect art in 2000. The H+F Collection, named after himself and his partner Felipe, is in long-term loan to various museums in The Netherlands and abroad. Nowadays Han Nefkens is not only active as a collector but also as an initiator of international art projects, often in collaboration with museums and other art institutions.
