Rinus Van de Velde is a Belgian contemporary artist. At the beginning of his career he was known for his large-scale charcoal drawings but now profiles himself as a total artist. Through diverse media ranging from drawings to sculptures, installations and film, Rinus Van de Velde creates a mirror universe where elements from reality and imagination coalesce into a unique kind of visual storytelling.
In the framework of this exhibition, centred on a circular story of leaving and returning home with the train as a metaphor for the journey, Van de Velde premieres his new film and presents a survey of primarily recent works. Parallel to this, he brings together and reframes a selection of works by modern and contemporary artists such as Pierre Bonnard, Joseph Cornell, Fischli/Weiss, Joan Mitchell, Claude Monet, Monster Chetwynd Laure Prouvost, Josephine Troller and Jean Tinguely, among others.
