Accumulation of things
Anne Geene is the fourth artist featured in the series ‘Vestibulum’. This title refers to the place where the exhibitions take place: the former entrance to the museum in the building designed by architect Henry van de Velde and opened in 1938. Every six months, the museum invites an artist to create a presentation for this now rather undefined space, which in some way relates to the place, the history of the museum or the collection.
For over a year, Anne Geene criss-crossed the area around the Kröller-Müller Museum. In Accumulation of things
she shows us the surroundings of the museum through insignificant things, such as pieces of rubble, blades of grass, sand and half-eaten leaves, presented together in a modern-day cabinet of curiosities.
