Razende Stilstand – Ruud van Empel at the Stedelijk Museum Breda
June 1, 2021
June 8 to September 4, 2022
Stedelijk Museum Breda is presenting works of Ruud van Empel, Teun Hocks, Tom Claassen, Eelco Brand and other artists in the groupshow ‘Razende Stilstand – Art in Breda’, dating works collected from 1970 to today.
Two key works of Ruud van Empel, still life Funghi and still life Meat are included. Both are from 2014. Meat is a quotation from a painting by abstract expressionist artist Willem de Kooning and Funghi is in line with a 17th century Dutch still life painting. Using chunks of meat to reconstruct the surface where De Kooning uses oilpaint and real funghi to construct the still life, these key works are extremely edgy.
Open for the public from June 8th till September 4, 2022.
