Opening exhibition
18 Nov 2016 Starts at: 8 p.m. Location: Garage Rotterdam

Most of us have stood in the moonlight near the water at least once in our lives. Breathing a sigh of happiness at our fortune of being able to witness this magnificent image. But the opposite side of the coin is also present: while swimming in the ocean at night, pitch black, endless emptiness surrounds you. The darkness stretches out around us. It’s a metaphor for human beings finding their way in the unknown.

The above is all too familiar to visual artists who deal with intangible reality. The works of art in this exhibition contain both light and darkness. They represent what defines human existence, something we cannot quite grasp.

You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition on Friday 18 November 2016 at 20.00 hrs. There is no entrance fee and it is not necessary to register in advance. Sparkling like the surface of the ocean at is open until 15 January 2017.
