Walking the Fields of Dreams
26.11.23  |  21.01.24

Aron Demetz (1972, Italy), Dov Ganchrow (1970, Israel/USA) and Hans Lemmen (1959, NL/B) are no strangers to the world of art and design.

These three artists from different countries, each from his own discipline, have found each other in their shared fascination for prehistory. Where else in history than at the beginning of mankind could our place on earth be better discussed? Their work is strongly linked to the place where they live and work, both in content and materials. The three artists regularly collaborate and debate with archaeologists through exhibitions, conferences and academic papers and most importantly by means of art projects.

The first presentation of the collaborative project of these three artists at Gallery Visavu is the start of a series of exhibitions that will visit (archaeological) museums at home and abroad.
At the start, individual works by the three artists will be shown. Gradually during the collaboration, the share of works created ‘in situ’ will increase. In 2025, the first museum presentation will take place at the Prehistory Museum in Ramioul, [B] south of Liège. 

Luc Amkreutz, Professor of Public Archaeology at the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University, and  Curator Prehistory of the Netherlands | National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden will introduce and officially open the exhibition on Sunday 26th of November at 4pm. The gallery will be open that afternoon from 3-6pm.

The exhibition Walking the Fields of Dreams will be on view from November 26th 2023 to January 21st 2024. 

Opening hours fri-sat-sun 1.00-5.00 pm
Closed on December 10th -24th-31rd and on January 14th.2024.



Force of Nature

Second group show with sculptures and drawings by Maarten Ceulemans [B]
paintings and work on paper by Tamara Muller [NL]
and  drawings by
 Rachel Wolfson Smith [US]

Force of Nature is an exhibition showcasing the work of three artists who create their work from a factor that binds them. Both in material, healing capacity, the power of human nature and overgrowth, the force of nature is reflected in their artworks. All three are skilful artists and masterly in the way they use their materials and tools. Even in the unfinished parts of the works of art, they show their power by not giving in to the attempt to finish it all. These blank parts invite the viewer to wander around the sculpture or in the painting, to rest the eyes on an open space in a drawing. They leave space for contemplation and thus involve the viewer in the artwork.

The force of nature is a source for all three artists from which they work. Unravelling the world that surrounds us and weaving it back together into a self-formed reality is something that binds them. The figuration in their work draws you into it because of the recognisability of form and appearance. It is fascinating to become part of the imagination of these artists that lets you go back and forth between humour, morbidity, beauty and emotion.

The exhibition Force of Nature is the successful result of three amazing artists whose work reinforces each other and is a feast for the eyes and the senses.
