Viviane Sassen: UMBRA
 Jan 26 — Apr 1, 2017

UMBRA is conceived as an installation piece with eight different chapters, each with a distinctive character. Certain works presented in the exhibition refer to abstract painterly traditions that include artists like Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian, or Mark Rothko. In other ways the installation refers to literary, scientific, and philosophical traditions, from Plato and Carl Jung to the young Dutch poet and writer Maria Barnas, who wrote poems to accompany UMBRA.
