About Henk Visch
With his conceptual figuration, the internationally reknowned Henk Visch (b. 1950, Eindhoven, NL) was one of the pioneering sculptors giving shape to the 'narrative turn.' His figures, poems and drawings are the result of contemplating life. ‘Art is there to reveal man to himself', says Visch. The artist holds up a mirror to us. The posture of his timeless figures refers to an attitude to life. One can regard the physical 'standing' as a metaphor for 'being' and the 'stance' as a metaphor for our positions and attitudes. Henk Visch wants to build a bridge to The Other. ‘Positions are there to be abandoned'.
About Spiraling into Infinity of Children of the Light
To our eyes, darkness is the absence of light, and light appears as the origin of life. In the world premiere of the awe-inspiring installation Spiraling Into Infinity by Amsterdam based artist duo Children of the Light, light is staged as a fleeting yet tangible presence that is playfully roaming the nebulous exhibition space of MU. Shifting colour, speed and direction, the light evokes different moods and modes of being. The soundscape by Jacob Lekkerkerker intensifies your perception of space. Like Matisse making a spontaneous penlight drawing in the air, Children of the Light – although on a slightly larger scale - do not only represent the visible, but reveal also what lies beyond.
