Sabine Hornig’s new, site-specific installation for ‘Sensory Spaces’ is her first exhibition in the Netherlands. In her work, she explores the experience and memory of space. The series of solo exhibitions ‘Sensory Spaces’ in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery kicked off with Oscar Tuazon. For each edition a single artist is invited to respond to the specific architectural characteristics of the site.

The exhibition ‘Sensory Spaces 2 - Sabine Hornig’ runs from 12 October 2013 until 26 January 2014.

Peter Zegveld - Sculptures and Installations
This autumn the museum is showing the work of theatre maker Peter Zegveld (1951) for the first time. Peter Zegveld is best known for his work with theatre companies such as Orkater and his television series for VPRO. In addition to his work in the performing arts, he creates installations that explore the workings of light, air, sound and gravity. He will show ten installations in and around the Serra Gallery. The exhibition coincides with the publication of a book covering the broad scope of Zegveld’s work. The publication is available from 12 October in the museum shop.

The exhibition ‘Sculptures and Installations’ runs from 12 October 2013 until 12 January 2014. On Sunday 20 October the concert ‘Scherzo Mechanica’ will allow the public an added insight into Zegveld’s universe.

Marcel Duchamp, artist ~ anartist
"Attribute a personal meaning to the readymades of Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and you will be told it is mere speculation, that it conflicts with what Duchamp himself said about his motives." Art historian Bert Jansen has undertaken original research into Duchamp and places his work in a new context.

The exhibition 'Marcel Duchamp, artist ~anartist' is on view from 12 October 2013 until 19 January 2014.
