Kasteel Wijlre
Tim Eitel: Resident 08.03.2018 — 10.06.2018
Hedge House

Tim Eitel’s work balances figurative painting with a conceptual approach often discretely recording inconspicuous actions, situations, or objects from everyday life.

The exhibition in the Hedge House appears to have emerged from Tim Eitel’s long stay at the country estate. The landscape, the garden, the visitors, the residents, and the art pavilion coincide with the often tranquil scenes of his work. However, prolonged viewing of his work discloses his ability to transport the viewer to another place and another time, thus putting forward new realities.

The project is part of Kasteel Wijlre estate’s multi-annual programme Binnen/Buiten (Inside/Outside) and is financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund.

Coach House

‘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.
