Art in corona times 14. Chung-Hsi Han, Inge Reisberman and Eelke van Willegen, Metamorphosis; Kadmium, Delft

Eelke van Willegen

Nature and the world around us change constantly, as, indeed, we do ourselves too, even without knowing or noticing it.

Changes may go slowly or abruptly and they make us change our views, perspectives and moods.

The idea of metamorphosis is part of our lives.

As such it is an extremely wide ranging concept, especially for an exhibition, like the one presently at Kadmium called Metamorphosis.

Maybe the most metamorphosis related work in the show is Inge Reisberman’s (1959) video Top of the lake which immerses you for almost seven minutes into a dreamlike state wherein colours and shapes slowly change, lighten up or fade away.

Strongest works on show by Chung-Hsi Han (1958) are, in that respect, Metamorphosis IX and X, both existing of four landscape-like drawings which more or less flow into each other.

In Eelke van Willegen’s (1974) sculptures metamorphosis is present like in any other work of art; after all, making art is, in itself, a matter of changing materials and ideas or reshaping them.

However that is no problem as Van Willegen’s sculptures almost literally shape the whole exhibition.

The show itself was opened in April, mid-Covid-19 crisis, but Kadmium itself is spacious enough to receive a few visitors and to keep a five feet distance.
