Koen van den Broek
In a fascinating succession, the Weserburg is presenting for the third time new artist spaces. Artists confidently present their works and concepts for discussion. The exhibition thereby offers insights into the variety and quality of current artistic production that is impressively documented in the collections of the Weserburg. In the differences, contradictions and encounters that thereby come to light, the artist's spaces of the Weserburg react to the complexity of current experiences of the world. Several specially selected spaces have been set up by the artists for this exhibition and can be seen only here as impressive on-site installations.
The Belgian Koen van den Broek achieves an impressive renewal of contemporary landscape painting. His paintings present views of the ocean, a vacation site, or the desert. But the selected motifs stand in deep contradiction to the expectations that we associate with the depiction of faraway, exotic places.
