“Nihon no È” (Paintings from Japan)
The loose leaves on this topic are a discourse with Far Eastern art. Although
of lush colourfulness, the tones are reduced. Black as the “colour of
all colours” has been allowed a lot of room. The symbolic signs predominate.
The form is determined by the material of Japanese blinds and over-sized dimensions.
The Artist’s Book of the same name belongs to the complete exhibition.
This exhibition has been named after Bert Handrick’s music. Ingeborg Arlt complied seven poems for this music cycle in the style of Japanese lyric.
A performance with Bert Handrick’s music and a recital of the poems can be arranged for the opening of this exhibition.
