Mirrors of time
Everything in life reflects time. Time reflects anything in life. This is also the case for castle in Oud-Rekem, which came to international recognition as an acclaimed venue for many extraordinary exhibitions. It is there where Annemie Van Laethem & Erik Croux thiry years ago found the place to give art a prominence, inspired by their afflatus for contemporary art a face. The castle serves now as a mirror of recent developments in the world of contemporary art.
Mirrors of Time reflects how the love of art by two passionate curators was transferred to many. Focused on a tireless dedication and passion for contemporary visual art. Many artists presented found their way from here to a large audience. Mirrors of Time revolves around the insight that art is always about time and can be seen as a reflection of the thinking and works of artists. On the other side, visitors can board at any level imaginable, but always in amazement and wonder. Especially in our time, which demands new or redefined terms of reflection, practices and wisdom, art is indispensable.
