Scenery

Group show at Exhibition Space 38CC, Delft, the Netherlands

This summer 38CC brings nature into the exhibition space.
In Scenery the view is focused on the landscape. But not necessarily the traditional landscape and idyllic nature.

The charcoal drawings of Anouk Griffioen, the textile works of Lawrence James Bailey and the surreal video of Hertog Nadler depict the tense relationship between man and nature. With this contrasting presentation of intriguing works, the traditional-looking theme of the romantic landscape acquires a whole new dynamic and meaning. Scenery becomes scene. And vice versa.

Address: Papenstraat 5, 2611 JB Delft
