Lou-Lou van Staaveren 13.03.2024 — 25.08.2024
Coach House

In the recent work of Lou-Lou van Staaveren (NL, 1990), who, like Elspeth Diederix, is mainly active as a photographer and has a preference for gardens and gardening, the artist searches for parallels between photography and gardening as a way to  get a grasp on the world around us. Her recent work focuses on the cultivation of garden design in the so-called topiary, a sculptural approach to plant pruning that became popular during the Baroque period, which also occurs at Kasteel Wijlre estate and is connected to historical-ideological understandings of the relationship between man and nature. Part of Van Staaveren's exhibition is a presentation of Pleasant Place, an internationally acclaimed magazine about art and gardening, founded and edited by Van Staaveren, Guus Kaandorp and Floor Koomen.
