Visiting Modern Art Museum in Arnhem, Netherlands (Part 2)

I’m such a lover of the Arts I seriously can’t live without them. Especially the visual ones. They feed me, they curry this vibrant energy that flows in me, they are my goddesses.
The experience I had the last time I visited the Modern Art Museum in the town Arnhem, in Netherlands was rich enough for about ten posts, but I’m gonna narrow it down and talk about the highlights.

Here’s the first part, in case you missed it.

First of all I have to comment on this amazing “boobie” sculpture. Dozens of glass boobs of every color and shape were placed upon one another creating this surreal piece of art that is adorning the forecourt of the Museum. It can be characterized as origins and funny with a touch of eroticism. I absolutely loved it. I would take it home, if I could. It was created by the artist Maria Roosen in 2010 under the title “Borstrentos”.


While I was wandering in the sacred place of flowing creativity I stumbled upon the installation “Vanitas” created by Hans Op De Beech in 1969. It was creepy in a way that still life carries death with it. Simple, monochromatic and scary, depicting objects of the artist’s every day life back in the days.

Entering the first room that you were coming across while entering the exhibition you were instantly feeling the melancholy and misfortune of old and hard times. I believe the paintings and installations were carefully picked to bring that feeling to the visitor. To connect them with the past and with times long gone and forgotten. Dark and mysterious is not really my style, but it was sure interesting.


As I continue my walk I came face to face with the work of talented painter Serie Tekeningen. She draw raw and rough portraits of women. Full face and profile. I couldn’t take my eyes off of them. My mind kept going back and forth their imaginary stories and I was trying to figure out how their lives should be. I should be standing there and gazing them over 30 minutes. Even the guard was impressed. They are printed in my mind now and I can recall them whenever I want.
My focus today was on giving you a small taste of how it was to visit those shows. I don’t know if they are still exhibited, but if you’re in the area it worths your time.

Artful kisses until next time!
