Full Moon at Voorlinden

01/06/17

There’s a lovely mixture of permanent and temporary work at Museum Voorlinden. The works of Ai Weiwei, Yves Klein, Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol, to name just a few, can be seen throughout the Full Moon exhibition space. Although the vast mix of work has such big differences in ages, the space itself and the work inside fit so perfectly together.
"Full Moon is about the pleasure of looking, comparing and discovering. For the first time, more than 40 artworks from various periods, movements and styles can be seen here together."
Some of my favourite pieces throughout the Full Moon galleries can be seen below. Ugo Rondinone's out-of-focus yellow circles create a hallucinating effect as you walked towards them. He was inspired by the Pop Art artist Jasper Jons who was the first to use the target image. Andy Warhol's Camouflage pieces were the last series of work he created before his death in 1987. The work shown in Room 3 was his 10 metres long Camouflage piece painted in 1986, it suggests that Warhol wasn't actually interested in camouflage and that's why the pattern was painted in brighter colours. It certainly attracts plenty of attention! The bottom left photo shows a close up of Enrico Castellani's Superficie, which Castellani stretched his canvas over nails, creating a slight relief in the surface. He was famous for this series of work, which were often monochrome and with the fantastic light in the gallery almost brings a shadow illusion to the work.
