Magical Place by Brigitte Wawoe and Helene van t Hoen
Landhuis Bloemhof announces the opening of the exhibition
by Brigitte Wawoe and Helene van ‘t Hoen.
Saturday March 23, 2019
at Landhuis Bloemhof.
Opening words by the artists.
Brigitte Wawoe and Helene van ‘t Hoen found a magical place in the abandoned buildings of the old stone factory surrounding the Tafelberg, the table top mountain at Fuik. A place where you can easily separate the howling of the wind and the rolling of the waves before they merge.
Working there inspired the art works exhibited in ‘Magisch oord’. Both artist express their inspiration and fascination with this place in their own art form. Brigitte Wawoe in stone sculptures and mixed media paintings, Helene van ‘t Hoen in photographs and an installation.
Brigitte Wawoe has been working in this environment for years and last year she introduced Helene van ‘t Hoen to her source of inspiration. What started as an occasional visit to a dear friend in Curaçao culminated in a serious project. The location made such an impression on Helene that it was irresistible to work there. The series of photos and the installation in this exhibition are the result of her visit to Curaçao last March. The series itself is titled, ‘Al het andere is gelijk’ (All else is equal).
For Brigitte, the art works on display are the form-shaped spirit of her dream world, her magical place.
The exhibition ‘Magisch Oord’ can be seen from March 23 till April 20, 2019 at Landhuis Bloemhof.
Santa Rosaweg 6, next to cafe ‘Tap Maar In’.
Tuesday to Saturday between 9:00 and 14:00 non-stop.
