Schöne Sentimenten (John Korner)

30-06-2019 - 29-09-2019

Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, BE

John Kørner participates in the group exhibition ‘Schöne Sentimenten’ at the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens (MDD).
With ‘Schöne Sentimenten’, MDD brings the potential of its collection to the fore. In the exhibition, core works from the museum's own collection enter into dialogue with works from private collections which the MDD currently manages or would like to manage in the future. The whole is therefore not a classical, but rather an imaginary collection presentation. Real works of art are combined with reproductions so as to emphasise the importance, capacity and possibilities of the displayed collections.
The core of the exhibition consists of pieces from the Dhondt-Dhaenens, Matthys-Colle and Cooreman collections, each of which played an important role in the acceptance of modern and contemporary art in Flanders.
Iconic works from the Dhondt-Dhaenens collection by, among others, Albert Servaes, Rik Wouters, Constant Permeke and James Ensor are confronted with established names such as Franz West and Thierry De Cordier, as well as young talent such as Sarah Baker and Lucy Mckenzie. The labyrinthine, striking scenography by Maxime Prananto opens possibilities for new associations and stimulates the imagination of the viewer.
‘Schöne Sentimenten’ refers to an eponymous edition by artist Jan Vercruysse, which is given a central place in the exhibition. The title implicitly alludes to the
beauty, but also the fragility of a museum collection.
