In 2021, Lustwarande proudly looks back on twenty years of exhibition practice in De Oude Warande. That is why only artists have been invited to STATIONS who, mostly as young talents, have previously participated in Lustwarande. The selected artists, twelve from a list of one hundred and seventy-five, have, since their earlier participation, developed oeuvres that are now decisive for the international sculptural canon and are therefore of great importance to be shown.

STATIONS refers to the moment the artists took part in Lustwarande - at the start of their career, or later, at various times in a span of twenty years, sometimes repeatedly - and currently, now that they are all mid-career and established. At the same time, the title refers to the seasonal changes that are essential to the location and to the stations of life, to the passage of time, to transformation and transience, and to the aspect of walking that is so important for Lustwarande and related outdoor exhibitions. Where as a walker you stop at the individual sculptures, stations themselves, new stories unfold, which are noticeably but not demonstrably interconnected.

SNEAK / REENCOUNTER

Every week we will post images here of three works in the exhibition. For some a sneak, for others a reencounter.
