In light of the repetition

Culture narrator Peter Brandes
Peter Brandes continuously plays through and reinterprets selected basic cultural narratives with his art. These shared narratives, which are otherwise easily forgotten in today's high-speed society, he retrieves from the history of civilization, biblical material and mythology. Often with suggestive visual expressions that convey important experience and open to reflection more than they postulate ready-made answers. His works re-actualize and throw new perspectives into important narratives.
Brand new works are shown as well as traces that reach back in a practice that has a great internal coherence. The exhibition forms a key to a deeper understanding of the practice the artist has now developed over a lifetime. Read more

An encounter with the metaphysical heart
Visual artist Linda Riber invites the audience into the field between the tangible and the intangible human heart. She sets up dialogue, interaction and reflection based on her personal experiences and approaches to the theme. Over a long period of time, she has collected data and researched both the physiological and the metaphysical aspects of what the heart is capable of. Data from various research sources is included in one of the artist's installations. The exhibition in the east wing consists of 3 installations, each in their own smaller room.

Mirko Zrinšćak - The Essence of Nature (working title)

Mirko Zrinšćak is a sculptor, born in 1953 in Volosko in Croatia. His sculptural forms have in common that they are made of wood that he finds in his immediate surroundings - a protected nature reserve in the forest of Mount Učka, where he lives and works.
Zrinšćak works like a craftsman with the material and it is the work with the wood in ecological and spiritual balance that is in focus. Some of Mirko Zrinšćak's sculptural works are of a constructive nature, others are more organic, and as an artist Mirko Zrinšćak follows in the footsteps of Brancusi and Arp: He searches for the essence of nature, which he translates into sculpture.
Anne Berk, who is the curator of the exhibition, emphasizes: "For me, his fluid forms reflect energy, growth and longing. Many of his elongated forms reach for the sky. They have a soul.”

As the title suggests, the exhibition focuses on works that give the viewer an impression of the special space that the forest represents: An architectural space, a space with a sound backdrop, a psychic space, a changing space, a historical space. A space that leaves a "hole in the sky" if the forest is felled. A space without which we cannot exist as humans.

The artists represented have very different approaches to the phenomenon of forest: as memory, botanical site, climate maintainer, CO2 absorber, as a place for activism, as sacred and a place for contemplation.
The participants are (as a starting point - changes may occur): Eva Jospin (1975, F), Abel Rodriques (1941, Columbia), Margit Lucacs (1973, NL) & Persijn Broersen (1974, NL), Cecylia Malik (1975, PL) , Marinus Boezem (1934, NL) , Helge Hommes (1962, DE) & Saxana Nicole Schötschel (DE).
