High Winds Move Slowly - opening at The Model Sligo

The Model is delighted to present High Winds Move Slowly, a very special two-person exhibition with Dutch artists Arno Kramer and Henk Visch.

This show, which is curated and toured by the Museum De Buitenplaats in the Netherlands, marks the first time that these two artists have been brought together in one exhibition.

While Arno Kramer is predominantly engaged in making drawings and drawing-installations, Henk Visch focuses on sculpture in the broadest sense of the word. Both artists however experiment with the possibilities of the figurative and the abstract in the visual sphere.

Speaking ahead of the opening Acting Director, Emer McGarry commented ďThe Model is delighted to partner with the Museum de Buitenplaats on this very special two person exhibition. We are very grateful to the Mondriaan Funds for enabling us to bring this show to Sligo audiences.

"The Model plans to collaborate again with the Museum De Buitenplaats in 2019 when an exhibition drawn from The Niland Collection will be presented in Groningen, and we look forward to sharing the work of Irish artists with new audiences there."

The opening reception will take place on Saturday 19th August at 5pm and will be marked by a gallery conversation between Arno Kramer, Henk Visch and curator Patty Wageman.

This will be followed by a drinks reception as well as a very special performance by contemporary dancer Iris Reyes in direct response to the exhibition.
