KMSKA © Karin Borghouts, 2013  - Series Interludium, archival pigment print 94 x 114 cm, Dibond, framed

 Solo exhibition
Interludium shows photographs of the setting for disappeared exhibitions or exhibitions that have not yet opened in museums. It also includes pictures of halls after the show had ended or before it had started. The photographs show spaces, but the theme is time and interludes. They evoke questions about looking, about what we see and what we don’t normally see.
You will see photographs from before the major commission from the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Antwerp and Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, several of which were featured in the photo exhibition ‘Beyond the Document’ at Bozar Brussels.

Solo exhibition


After Karin Borghouts took photographs of the Van Gogh reproduction in her parents’ burned-out home, she became aware of her youthful memories of this painting and the influence it had had on her visual memory. Slowly a ball started rolling, and the photographer has since followed in Vincent van Gogh’s footsteps several times over the past few years. Zundert, de Borinage, Nuenen, Parijs, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Auvers sur Oise… she looked and photographed things today that the painter had looked at, drawn and painted around 130 years ago. Karin has also made reconstructions of Van Gogh’s still lifes and photographed them.

The photographs from the North Brabant period are now on display for the first time, along with the major exhibition ‘Van Gogh’s Inner Circle’ that is being held this autumn at Het Noordbrabants Museum in ’s Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands.

New Photo Book


Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890) moved from place to place from quite early on in his life, never staying in one spot for very long. In the Borinage he decided to devote himself to art, and made some 900 paintings and 1,100 works on paper during his career. He also left 902 letters for posterity. The photographer Karin Borghouts followed in Vincent’s footsteps, from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise in France where he took his own life. No less than thirteen locations, including Nuenen, Drenthe, Paris, Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence are portrayed in magnificent images. She has also reconstructed 25 of his still lifes and photographed them.
Come and enjoy the wondrous places and themes that were Vincent’s, and view them afresh through Karin Borghouts’ lens.
