Solo exhibition in Villa Hinkeloord

It was Franz Schubert's Winterreise in 2015 that prompted sculptor Thijs Kwakernaak to make a number of wooden statues, at least one for each of the songs. The work on his own Winterreise took five years and proved to be a cathartic and emotional journey. Thijs experiences the songs in the Winterreise as looking in a mirror. Just as a sculptor confronts himself in his own sculptures, the musical settings of the 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller had a major impact on his work.
