Middelburg800: Outside Vleeshal's Walls! #4
Atelier van Lieshout, Hendrik-Jan Hunneman
Sunday 17 December 2017
1 – 2:30 pm
Meeting point: Vleeshal, Markt
In celebration of Middelburg's 800th anniversary, Vleeshal organized a versatile public program of excursions outside its walls. With its forty years of existence, Vleeshal makes up an essential part of Middleburg’s history. Middelburg800 presented Vleeshal with an excellent opportunity to guide visitors to its collection of sculptures and other works of art in public space.
During the fourth edition of Outside Vleeshal’s Walls! we visited two works in Middelburg's public space; You Mean So Much to Me by Hendrik-Jan Hunneman and De Ontknopping by Atelier van Lieshout. Both sculptures were developed within the framework of the project Kunst in de Wijken (Art in the Neighbourhood).
Artist Hendrik-Jan Hunneman and Vleeshal-team member Geeske Pluijmers guided us to the two works and discussed the realisation of these sculptures in Middelburg and the community project Kunst in de Wijken.
Vleeshal is an internationally oriented center for contemporary art, rooted in Zeeland. In Zeeland Focus, Vleeshal highlights regional artists, takes part in and celebrates local contemporary art and culture.
