We are very proud to announce Andy Holden’s upcoming exhibition at the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands. On view from 23 March 2024.
The Wood for the Trees features artworks by four artists who examine the relationship between humans and nature in different ways in their work. Andy Holden watches and listens to birds, Eija-Liisa Ahtila enters into conversation with nature, Julian Charrière explores the role of the landscape in art and Hans Op de Beeck discusses climate change. As part of the exhibition, there are walks and activities in the sculpture garden. The Wood for the Trees is a multifaceted exhibition, which is thought provoking and will leave you with fresh notions and ideas.
No museum in the Netherlands is as intertwined with nature as the Kröller-Müller Museum. Its founder Helene Kröller-Müller believed that it is much easier to concentrate on and enjoy art in the tranquillity of nature, rather than the hustle and bustle of the city. Today you can still experience outstanding art here, amidst the peace and quiet of nature.
The climatic crises are enormous and complex. A simple answer does not exist. What’s more, in the labyrinth of opinions, solutions and discussions, we often cannot see the wood for the trees. Where to start? How do you organize your (own) life to ‘act responsibly’? And how can you best listen? Who are you actually talking to? The Wood for the Trees raises these questions and invites you to reflect on your own role in the midst of the beautiful nature that surrounds the Kröller-Müller Museum.
A new outdoor sculpture commissioned by the Museum will be part of the exhibition and will be permanently on display at the sculpture garden of the Museum. For more information please visit the website or contact the gallery.
