Fine Arts alumna Aura Rendón Benger in museum Beelden aan Zee
17 February 2017 - 7 May 2017

Fine Arts Exhibition

Feeling. Really feeling, physically feeling, evokes a mental reaction. That is the essence of the work of the German installation and performance artist Aura Rendón Benger (Karlsruhe, 1989).

The exhibition hall’s panoramic view of the sea, the sky and the tall marram grass of the dunes inspired Aura Rendón Benger to integrate expansiveness, but also a sense of enclosure, in her installation. About this, the young artist says: ‘The element of air is present in every part of my installation, whilst the material absorbs the colours of its surroundings. The installation is the reflection of my sea - my inner sea’. The inflatable objects, which are made of fabric, reflect light, as do the sea and the sky. The visitor is enticed into entering this interactive world of organic, abstract shapes and to not only look at them, but especially to experience them.

This is he first exhibition in an exceptional series relating to young talent that museum Beelden aan Zee is organizing in the next five years in collaboration with, and with the support of the Stichting Stokroos.
