Ger van Elk - 1976-1996
22nd June - 1st September 1996
Le Quartier shows a selection of thirty exhibits realized between 1976 and 1996, the whole being devised as a journey through the many-sided works of this artist.
The exhibition is displayed in the form of a three-act play or three poems, each symbolizing particular circumstances of the artist's work.
The artist and the history of art
Still-life paintings and portraits of the 1980's illustrating Ger van Elk's relationaships with 17th century Dutch painting, with the artist's 20th century hue.
The artist on stage
Ger van Elk as a stage-director and a player of his own works. This second part of the exhibition presents the works of the 1970's, with their powerful dramatic attraction.
Between lies and truth
The artist and the history of art in league against nature. These exhibits belong to the present decade and relate to the landscape.
