Sensuality and finiteness – an exhibition that introduces these concepts in the title offers the viewer sensual, heroic, mythologically charged works that are intertwined with beauty, pay homage to Eros and immerse him in the depths of being, and confront him with the inevitability of the transient.
When immersed in these worlds of thought, the senses oscillate between the fascinated attraction and disturbance, sleeping and awakening, beauty and death, life and loss.
From the 1910/1920s (Pierre de Soete, Mathieu Molitor, Marcel Wolfers) we are carried into the here and now by contemporary photographs (Cristina Garcia Rodero, Duane Michals, Ulrich Tillmann). The real thing is the presence of the moment and the memory of it.
