/ I am closer to you than your very self

Opening Saturday November 28, 4 PM

Exhibition, November 29 2015 - January 31 2016

Gijs Frieling
Hamid El Kanbouhi
Chaim van Luit

Curator: Eelco van der Lingen

Although the arts are less used in a religious context than for example during the renaissance, and the church is no longer one of the most important social forces, our daily lives are still influenced by religion in different ways. Three artists, with a christian, jewish an muslim background, reflect on the role of religion in their personal lives and work.

The work by Hamid El Kanbouhi is a corporation with René Baptist Huysmans and Anne Rodermond.
