You are cordially invited for the opening of the exhibition The Raft, Art is (not) Lonely on Saturday October 21 at 14.00, in Oostende, Belgium. The exhibition runs through April 15th, 2018. You can order tickets here. Berend Strik is one of the participating artists together with Bill Viola, Adrian Paci, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Aernout Mik, Michael Borremans, Luc Tuymans, Steve McQueen, Mike Figgis, a.o.
'The sequel to The Sea - Salut d’honneur Jan Hoet' opens on the 22nd of October 2017. In this second edition of the international triennial exhibition, the ‘raft’ plays a pivotal role. 'The Raft. Art is (not) Lonely' is about the vessel and the ecstasy of art. Earlier this year, the artist Jan Fabre was invited to curate this new edition, a challenge that he accepted with enthusiasm! Joanna De Vos will co-curate the project.
Berend Strik (1960, Nijmegen) is best known for his embroidered work. Since 2012, Strik has been working on a series of artist theaters entitled 'Decipher the Artist's Mind'. For the exhibition 'The Raft, Art is (not) Lonely', the artist explores the living space of apartment 340. Using existing iconographic material and his own work, he combines elements of the lives of artists like Spilliaert, Géricault and Ensor to create a large-scale, space-filling installation.
