VINCENT WAS HERE
 

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.

Karin Borghouts’ promising book of photographs, ‘Vincent was here’ is appearing in October in an edition by Ronny Van de Velde.

MUSEUM IN TRANSITION IN LEIDEN

 
Museum De Lakenhal reopened on 20 June 2019. In one of the two new exhibition halls, the exhibition MUSEUM IN TRANSITION is running until 29 September 2019, with large-format photos by Karin Borghouts. Between 2016 and 2019, Karin Borghouts followed the process of renovating Museum De Lakenhal with her camera.
This is one of the eleven artistic projects that Museum De Lakenhal commissioned to mark the renovation. ‘Destroyed House’ by the artist Marjan Teeuwen can be seen in the other new exhibition hall. The new building was designed by HappelVerhoevenCornelisse Architecten.  
In the renovated museum wings, you can enjoy the permanent collection with masterpieces by Lucas van Leyden, Rembrandt and Theo van Doesburg.

INTERLUDIUM

  
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 exhibition ‘Beyond the Document’ at Bozar in 2011.
Since the beginning of 2019, Hasselt Cultural Centre has only presented lens-based exhibitions.
