The exhibition Colouring consists of a unique overview of twenty chalices which Guido Geelen (Thorn, 1961) has made during his artistic career.
Since the 1980s, sculptor Guido Geelen has consistently given new impetus to Dutch ceramics. Estate founders Jo and Marlies Eijck bought Geelen’s first chalice piece in 1988. This work in red baked clay formed the starting point for a series of now twenty chalices, presented together for the first time in this exhibition. For this occasion, Geelen has made four new chalices.
In the forest of the estate, a monumental installation is installed as a reflection of the exhibition in the Hedge House.
Conversations #1 is the first edition of a multi-year programme at the Coach House of Kasteel Wijlre estate. Each edition features two or three artists, filmmakers, architects, or designers, all born and raised in the Euroregion, at different phases of their careers.
Conversations #1 features the work of filmmakers Miriam Gossing (Siegburg (DE), 1988) & Lina Sieckmann (Engelskirchen (DE), 1988) and visual artist Esther Janssen (Maastricht, 1976).
A selection of graphic designer Baer Cornet’s calendars for Verfindustrie Jac Eyck (Jac Eyck Paint Industry), designed between 1978 and 2000, will be displayed in the Salon of the Coach House until 12 November. Baer Cornet’s designs are characterised by the use of primary colours and white and a restricted number of sans-serif typefaces such as Monotype Grotesque, Frutiger, Futura, and Gill.
