Kasteel Wijlre estate presents the first solo exhibition in the Netherlands by visual artist Tim Eitel (1971, Leonberg (DE)). Over the past fifteen years, Tim Eitel has given a new impetus to painting in the contemporary art world.
‘What is the brain, if not an immense and natural palimpsest? Such a palimpsest is my brain; such a palimpsest, oh reader! is yours. Everlasting layers of ideas, images, feelings, have fallen upon your brain softly as light.’
The visitor is invited to enter Kasteel Wijlre’s 18th-century Coach House for an exhibition exploring this idea of Charles Baudelaire. On both floors, the interlinked spaces include works by ten international artists. The works share a complex character, discreetly transcending their disciplines while conveying distinctive narratives.
