People at an exhibition

Museums. How do people look at art? How do they move? Is there a difference between the way they look at the beginning and at the end of the exhibition?

Albert Cuyp

Great exhibition at Dordrecht Museum with paintings by Turner, Callcott, Constable, Gainsborough and of course Albert Cuyp who inspired them. To view the paintings I can only strongly recommend to visit the museum. I made ICMs of the visitors.

Fotomuseum

What if you're fond of visiting photography exhibitions but you are on your own and extremely short-sighted? This elderly man tried to read the texts that go with the pictures and gave up after some time. Too small. From then on he scrutinised the images at just a couple of inches distance and in his notepad he wrote down the name of the artist which was in bigger print. At home he would look everything up. I can understand why he felt a bit lost.

Matlas

Matlas is a port-manteau word: mullet and atlas. Since 2011, photographers Daniel Heikens and Rein Langeveld have been working with designer Joost Nijhuis on a project about 'The Hague mullet'. Capturing men with this iconic haircut started as a hobby but quickly got out of hand.

Cloisonné

Made famous by Marie Kuyken. In this picture her offspring from Belgium is enjoying the works on display. The term 'cloisonné' refers to the historical technique of cloisonné enamel. Metal strips were also used, but then on a metal surface. The strips not only form the representation, but also prevent the different colors of enamel powder used to fill the hollow spaces between the strips (cloisons) from melting together in the oven.

Popel Coumou

Artist-photographer Popel Coumou (1978) plays with the most important elements of photography in her work: light, paper and the perception of reality. By lighting her collages of paper, she adds a third dimension to the paper.

'Zilte haring, rode kroot', the exhibition was called, Salty herring, red beetroot. Doesn't make much sense as I just picked out a detail for this post, the idea was to connect furniture and food.

Voorlinden

Museum Voorlinden has this installation that allows people to walk under a (very shallow) swimming pool. It's a great effect.

Thyssen-Bornemisza

Although less 'eclectic' than the Prado, this private collection of Thyssen (indeed, the manufacturer of elevators among other things) is fascinating. Moreover, the museum is a pleasant place to stay. And you are allowed to take pictures.
