Hendrik Kerstens at Musée des Beaux-Arts, Caen
March 29, 2017
“L’attention au réel: Art flamand et hollandais”, from 19 May to 10 September 2017.
Work of Hendrik Kerstens is exhibited in a group show featuring work of Rembrandt, Jan Fabre and Fiona Tan i.a..
From the rich collections of the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de Genève and the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Caen, paintings from the Flemish and Dutch masters from the 16th and 17 century are interwoven in a dynamic way with the work of a contemporary artist working in Holland and Belgium: Jan Fabre, Hendrik Kerstens, Fiona Tan, Cyprien Gaillard and Hans Op De Beeck. The show sheds light on the disappearance of the narrative and the symbolic subject matter, and the attention for things common, even the most sensitive.
