The other day i visited Bram de Jonghe’s exhibition Grist to the Mill at Stroom.
He attached a large transparent surface on a frame horizontally in the main room of the gallery.
You can walk around it as far as possible.
But all kinds of things are happening underneath.
Around it are some objects, including one
which is not blowing out a candle.
And just under the surface a big flowering Verbascum, softly swaying in the wind, might invite you to take a look under the framework.
A pencil becomes a symbol, for thoughts
evoked by the things you see, or thoughts
provoked to make this installation.
Time to move on…
In the basement of the gallery, you can walk from one thought to another. Is there or must there be a connection between them?
They need the space around them, for, with the thoughts they create, they need a lot of space.
There ‘s movement, creating, there are thought provoking objects.
There are even some drawings as if reflected by or in the framework, which is also hanging over the basement.
And time to move on again…..
to see the end of the story, or the object of your quest.
Is it a story? Is it a quest? If you want, it is. If you don’t, it isn’t.
