VideoTILBURG – This year the tenth outdoor exhibition is being held in Lustwarande Oude Warande. The works of twenty-six international artists can be seen in the period from 15 June to 20 October. Most of the work on display was created specifically for Lustvarunde. The anniversary exhibition (titled: Delicious) showcases a wide range of developments in contemporary sculpture and is curated by Chris Driesen and David Jablonowski.
Lustavarande began the anniversary season with the performance program Brief Encounter. On Sundays in spring and Sundays in late summer, there are three performances (short performances) by international artists. On 26 May, Grace Schwindt (Germany), William Hunt (Great Britain) and Melanie Bonazo (Netherlands) will be at Aude Warande.
dancer and musician
All three are familiar on the stage of international performances. Schwindt dances a fairytale with a horse, a rider and eight glass sculptures made especially for Lustwarande. De Oude Varande will have a new, one-run alter ego, with dancers and musicians near William Hunt. In her latest performance, Melanie Bonazo comments on the climate crisis and the way we humans want to relate to things, plants, animals, ourselves and others in the future. The duration of the performance is five to twenty minutes.
During the second series, on 8 September, Belgian artist Gossy Vervalosem explores the phenomenon of Horror Garden through a cinematic performance lecture. Other artists are Sander Breuer and Witte van Hulzen (Netherlands) and Last Year’s Interesting Negro (Great Britain).
under the beech trees
Performances take place under beech trees, among pines, by a mirror pond, in bushes and in the middle of an open meadow. Curators Lucet ter Borg and Chris Driessen selected the artists because of their attention to gender, feminism, ‘black’ consciousness, eco-consciousness, art-historical power structures and their ability to express these ideas in visually interesting images.
During the large open-air exhibition from mid-June to October 20, artists come from countries including France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, among others. United States, Belgium and Netherlands.
