GERT ROBIJNS BERND LOHAUS: ‘STONE / BRONZE’
Gert Robijns is pleased to invite you for the opening of the exhibition Bernd Lohaus: Stone / Bronze.
Bernd Lohaus ‘Stone / Bronze’ brings two monumental outdoor ‘stone’ sculptures, the 10-part work ‘TEIL/GELEBT-GELIEBT, from 1987 and the work GLUT, from 1990, both presented in the garden of RESETHOME. Inside the house and the nearby renovated warehouse, two groups of bronze sculptures go in dialogue with the architecture of RESETHOME and it’s surroundings.
As a proponent of the European avant-garde, the works of Bernd Lohaus (°1940 Düsseldorf – 2010 Antwerp) have been exhibited widely in the past decades, both in Belgium as internationally. In 1992 Lohaus’ participated in documenta IX, curated by Jan Hoet. Dedicated exhibitions took place at major public institutions, such as SMAK, Ghent (2005), Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (1979), Düsseldorf Kunstmuseum (1980), and, posthumously, Mac’s Grand Hornu (2013) and M HKA, Antwerp (2015).
The exhibition Bernd Lohaus: Stone / Bronze is made possible by the generous support of the Bernd Lohaus Foundation, and Tommy Simoens, Antwerp.
RESETHOME is a sculpture, an artist residency and an exhibition venue combined. Conceived and built by the Belgian artist Gert Robijns in the footprint of his grandmother’s former home, as a free space for art, resethome is dedicated to bringing artists and audiences together in the village of Borgloon, Limburg.
