Bad Homburg (Germany)
From May 22nd to October 3rd 2011
Opening on May 22nd at 11h30
Blickachsen is an exhibition of contemporary sculpture and installations by leading as well as promising international artists which takes place throughout the summer every two years in the historical parks of Bad Homburg v.d. Höhe.
With each new exhibition the specific placing of modern works in this classical setting offers stunning new perspectives on both the works themselves and on the original “Blickachsen”, or “lines of vision”, designed for the gardens by the celebrated nineteenth-century landscape artist Peter Joseph Lenné.
The rich and ever-changing interplay between landscape and art lies at the heart of this unique series of exhibitions, which is rapidly establishing an international reputation.
This year Blickachsen is curated by Jan Teeuwisse, the director of Museum Beelden aan Zee, Scheveningen (The Netherlands).
Johan Tahon will take part in the exhibition with two monumental polyester sculptures. Other participating artist are a.o. Tony Cragg, Joep van Lieshout, Dennis Oppenheim and David Nash.
