Horizon at Villa Mondriaan

Horizon at the Villa Mondriaan.
From March onwards, the Villa Mondriaan museum will show a new horizon alongside the early work of Piet Mondriaan. In Horizon, four different perspectives on the world and art as practice are presented.
With their art, Paul Kooiker, Rob Birza, Anne Feddema and Richard Hutten each give their own view on art as a form of human expression. For the first time, Villa Mondriaan will give three contemporary artists and a designer control of all its exhibitions rooms. They each have their own space to show one art series and let visitors experience their work. Although the artists see Mondriaan as an important example, their art shows nothing of Mondriaan's primary colours or black, white and gray lines.
Piet Mondriaan incorporated and bent fixed formulas into his art. As an analytical artist, he looked at the relationship between his art and reality, as well as at the role art plays in society. Eventually he managed to capture the world in geometric abstraction, his signature style.
Mondriaan found the answers to the questions he asked. Now, a century later, Horizon highlights contemporary artists who conduct their own quest for the relationship between art and reality and the purpose of art.
