Le rêve, la route, le mur
The site-specific installations of artist Wineke Gartz (Eindhoven, 1968) consist of a carefully composed stream of images. Gartz, originally a painter and draftswoman, has an impressive reservoir of images: photographs, videos, drawings and sketches that she has made in the course of her career. For Le rêve, la route, le mur, Wineke Gartz once again draws on this reservoir of images to transform the former entrance of the museum into a tableau vivant.
According to Gartz, looking is not just an activity of the eyes. The body, mind, memories, dreams and experience of the observer play an equally important role, as does the physical movement through the work and the space. With ‘le mur’ in the title, Gartz refers to the basic functions of a wall: to offer protection and security, as well as to exclude and imprison, but she also refers to walls as the concretization of a plan, a dream: ‘le rêve’: a museum for a collection.
