It is an artistic dialogue between father and son that is reflected in the new exhibition at the Kolvenburg in Billerbeck: There, from 28 July, graphics by father Cees Andriessen and his son Camiel can be seen under the title "when white finds its form". The exhibition opens on 28 July (Sunday) at 5 pm. It is a harbinger of the Münsterland Festival part 10, which will take place in the region from 10 October to 10 November.
The Dutch artist Cees Andriessen (*1940) is one of the world's leading graphic artists. His technique is incorruptible, his large-format woodcuts are characterised by an overwhelmingly clear language. Characteristic of Andriessen's artistic work is the colour white, which is not emptiness but space.
Cees Andriessen's works are juxtaposed with the more representational works of his son Camiel (*1974). They enter into a dialogue in which the colour white seems to step forward plastically and determine the space.
The exhibition probes the boundaries between space, colour and perception and shows in a fascinating way how father and son inspire each other.
Until 3 November, the exhibition is open to visitors at the following times: Tuesdays to Saturdays from 1 to 6 pm, Sundays and public holidays from 10 am to 1 pm and 1.30 pm to 5.30 pm. Admission is 3.50 euros.
