An art project at Castle Old Rekem, 13 July – 29 September 2019.
Curator: Annemie Van Laethem & Eric Croux
'Come Closer' is a call to experience, feel, see, and experience contemporary art up close as an empathetic invitation. Not so much by holding a magnifying glass for the works of 23 international, mostly young, artists to analyze them soberly and professionally, but to get really close and experience them. Certainly in these times, getting closer is no longer so obvious. The speed with which we think we are communicating and concluding, the superficial worn-out depth, the neglect of our senses, makes the essence and our reflection on it, not always evident, let alone relevant.
