ALBEDO

BEAUFORT-LOCATION: HOLLOW IN THE DUNES, BREDENE

Niek Kemps

°1952, The Netherlands

By working with various layers of meaning the work of Niek Kemps gets a mysterious quality. The visitor is led by a feeling of the mysterious and the unknown. In this context Kemps creates large works of art, in which the visitor can walk around and get lost. The same goes for Albedo, which he originally made for the Skulptur Biennale Münsterland. The pavilion is inviting, despite the tightly closed structure, caused by the density of the steel. It is both a labyrinth and a garden – the artist has incorporated a garden in a pavilion structure. This architecture is made to be looked at and through. In this way the work functions almost as a camera.
