As you may have read in my previous post, I went on a roadtrip a few weeks ago. First stop was Otterlo, this city is the home of the Kröller-Müller museum. It came to my knowledge a few months ago that this museum exists. The collection is richly filled with Vincent Van Gogh his work, but besides these wonderful pieces you get the chance to see sculptures outside the walls of the museum (more on this in the following post).
The initial plan for the roadtrip was visiting Kassel, but we had to make a little detour to visit Otterlo. Mainly because of the exhibition “Arp : the Poetry of Forms”. Arp, the one and only Jean Arp, best known as a sculptor in my knowledge, but after seeing this exhibition my mind broadened.
Whenever his name pops up in conversation I always think of his abstract work, eversince I enrolled in the world of abstractism with my own work, I admired his artistic vision and I always wanted to get lost in his work. So this exhibition came at a perfect time.
Every room was filled with dozens of pieces. Two dimensional work on this walls, alternated with three dimensional pieces. The sculptures were placed in glass containers so you could admire them from every angle, even though the glass made me feel so distanced from the work I still enjoyed walking around them. But overall, everything that I saw fascinated me so much. It would recommend visiting this exhibition. You have until the 17th of September 2017.
