Press release exhibition “Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch”

February 3 to April 7 is in Museum Slager, Den Bosch, the 'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' exhibition by Eveline van de Griend to see. The exhibition is the final piece of a five-year project and shows for the first time the entire series of 12 large oil paintings on canvas and some sculptures. In this solo exhibition, Van de Griend asks current questions for discussion and highlights themes such as post-colonialism, cultural differences and the mutual relationship of people.


Eveline van de Griend is a native Bossche and resides in Berlin, Germany. The painter Hieronymus Bosch has played an important role in her choice to become an artist. Van de Griend grew up in the Netherlands, England and Russia and spent a large part of her childhood in Africa. These countries and her many journeys have shaped her perception and perception of the world.


Combines in the exhibition 'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' Eveline van de Griend sublime styles from the past with today's fiction. We see a clear reference to Renaissance painters such as Hieronymus Bosch, but also to the surrealism of the 20se century and contemporary pop and film culture such as the absurd logic of David Lynch's films and science fiction. The psychoanalytic theories of Freud are also present below the surface. Eveline van de Griend shows what usually would rather not be seen and with that she follows in the footsteps of Hieronymus Bosch. Through the hidden creatures that houses in our mind, she opens doors. In her attempt to capture humanity, she is not afraid to make herself vulnerable.


'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' shows that Bosch lives on to his legacy in a new generation. And Den Bosch can be proud of that.


The vernissage of 'Reincarnation of Hieronymus Bosch' is on Sunday 3 February at 16.00 p.m.

The exhibition runs until 7 April 2019.


Museum Slager is open Tuesday to Friday 11:00 am - 17:00 pm,

Saturday and Sunday from 13.00 pm to 17.00 pm.
