Hans Op de Beeck

At The Elbow is a new exhibition space in the former Elleboogkerk on Langegracht 36 in Amersfoort. Over the next few years it will feature extensive installations by artists from the Netherlands and abroad. In De Elleboog is an initiative of Amersfoort in C (Kunsthal KAdE, Museum Flehite, Mondriaanhuis, Architecture Center FASadE) and made possible by the municipality of Amersfoort. 

Currently on display is artist Hans Op de Beeck's new experiential installation "The Silent Reflection.

Hans Op de Beeck has made several of these over the past twenty years in a wide variety of locations. Each time they involve the creation of an enigmatic place with an architectural and landscape dimension, inviting the viewer to find silence and a timeless moment of reflection and calm.

For the In The Elbow location, this is a winter water landscape with a horizon. On the Beeck: "Water not only reflects in a literal sense, but figuratively stimulates reflection, reflective, contemplative thinking about being and the world."

What visitors think of the experience installation at At The Elbow? This is some of the responses:

'Beautifully beautiful and especially sensitive. You can look at it for a while. Wow!'

'Surprising and so beautifully still yet agile.'

'Breath taking'

'Beautiful silence in a far too loud yardd.'

'Somewhere else entirely.'

You can At The Elbow visits at Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Langegracht 36. Tickets are €4 and can be purchased at the box office in the Elleboog Church. This installation can be visited separately from the exhibition '4 National Collections & Hans Op de Beeck' at Kunsthal KAdE.
