Exhibitions in Plein Theater

The walls in our Eetlokaal are a stage where various artists exhibit their work!

Here you will find an overview of current visual art exhibitions and a look back at exhibitions from the past.

In our program we also regularly present opening events. These exhibits and openings are curated and presented by The Bohemian Art Collector (Cynthia Makiese). Based on contemporary issues, she aims to create a fusion of various art disciplines and the public. Encounters, collaboration and connection are central in the events.

Welcome The VOID

We are open again! In the month of June, the Plein Theater is all about celebrating the reopening of cultural institutions and the urgent need for encounters, reflection and introspection. We start on Thursday 10 June   with the exhibition opening 'Welcome The VOID', curated and presented by The Bohemian Art Collector (Cynthia Makiese). In addition to the Theater   we also reopen our renewed terrace!

'Welcome The VOID' focuses on the search for ourselves in 'out of nowhere'. Because the world had been shut down, a sort of vacuum has been created, in which we have been trapped for a long time. Many things that used to give us tools to give meaning to our own existence, and to shape our own identity, have suddenly disappeared. More than ever we have been thrown back on ourselves. Meaning and usefulness have suddenly acquired a whole new dimension.

Now we have the opportunity to redefine this ourselves.

How do you get from nothing to something ?

With this question in mind, The Bohemian Art Collector has gathered a number of interesting artists who explore this theme in all its facets in their work.

With this exhibition we celebrate the slow opening of the world. We leave the dark period behind us and welcome the sun and the light.

 

Fleur Ouwerkerk

"My work is a search for the connection between identity and looks.
I am inspired by people in general, I am interested in ethnicity, human behavior, body-movement, perception of beauty, beauty-ideals and eccentricity.

I identify myself with the transforming abilities of a chameleon.
If I change my look, I feel different, as if I become somebody else.
I like to become somebody else every now and then."

The works of vandeCamp&Heesterbeek start with portrait photography and end with abstraction. Portrait photo’s are carefully deconstructed and assembled back together again. The intent of the photo or the identity of the person portrayed are no longer relevant, there is only the image. As reversed painters they take out the irrelevant details of photography to get to the essence of the image.
Every once in a while a fictitious object is added. The identity and form of the person portrayed are remixed. The result are images where the black and the white live their own lives. The original portrayed persons are still recognizable but are now part of a larger whole; albeit stripped to the existential minimum in a balanced composition.
