Terugblik expositie 2015

Er deden verschillende kunstenaars mee uit binnen- en buitenland. Twee jaar lang is met passie en aandacht werk geselecteerd. 'We hebben gemerkt dat deze vorm van kunst in de reguliere kunstwereld met veel argwaan wordt bekeken. Ik zie tijdens mijn rondgang langs ateliers van zorginstellingen dat daar fantastische kunst wordt gemaakt. De meest aansprekende werken laten we zien op de expositie. Maar de kunstwereld gelooft niet dat het bij die werken gaat om kwalitatief goede kunst. Daarom is het goed dat de Art Brut Biënnale er is.' Elvira van Eijl, curator.

Er werden werken geëxposeerd uit o.a. uit de volgende landen.

  • Duitsland: Art Cru Gallery in Berlijn en het Kunsthaus Kannen Münster.
  • Engeland: Henry Boxer Gallery, Richmond. (zie informatie hieronder)
  • Frankrijk: Musée L'art En Marche, Lapalisse
  • Nederland: o.a. Galerie "Beeldend Gesproken", Amsterdam; Special Arts en Jans Pakhuys, Amersfoort; De Haagse School, Den Haag; Atelier 23, Arnhem; Atelierz, Hengelo; Artdesch, Almelo.

Vier kunstenaars vanuit de Henry Boxer Gallery in Londen

Joel Lorand

'I truly believe that a superior power has given me a real force which all true artists possess, a force which can influence matter making it pass from the invisible world to the visible world. A metaphysical force between the dead and the living. It is like drug and one cannot escape unscathed.'


Donald Pass

Self-taught British artist, diagnosed at a young age with schizophrenia, her work has been shown in many exhibitions related to Art & Mental Illness and has been featured in a number of articles that discuss this subject in prominent psychiatric journals.
