There are developing more small scale art spaces in The Hague these days, varying from shop windows and tiny galleries to living room pop-up exhibitions like this one in Petra Knötschke’s house.
Three artists are exhibiting in the two storeys of the house: Petra Knötschke herself, who shows objects, Anne-Marie Vismans-Rijssenbeek with ceramic vases and Lucius Pax, paintings.
Knötschke’s objects, made of wood, metal and other materials, look like un-mechanical mechanisms, improvisations that live by themselves.
Vismans’ vases may appear like ‘real’ vases but they may also develop into almost corporeal objects, both opened and closed.
Lucius Pax, always painting life as a thriller movie, shows some works based on German ‘Krimis’ (criminal tv-series) and German erotic movies.
The whole show is well-arranged and is only open this weekend (23-24 June).
