Trouble wandering (to eternity) 21.09.2022 — 08.01.2023
Hedge House

Trouble wandering (to eternity) traverses land and plummets beneath the waves. This group exhibition combines works from the Jo & Marlies Eyck collection at the Bonnefanten with works by contemporary artists that raise questions about how humans relate to the world around us and, more specifically, to nature during the climate crisis. How can we redefine our relation to ‘landscape’ given the rapid changes to the planet in the wake of climate change? Can art provide a deeper understanding of our relationship to our environment and provide tools for improvement? Can art help us develop an ecological awareness by activating our imagination, and project alternative futures?

Participating artists: Maud van den Beuken, Jean-Marc Bustamante, Ronald Cornelissen, Elspeth Diederix, Mimi Lauter, Tala Madani, Otobong Nkanga, Rory Pilgrim, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, and Carel Visser.
