Rinus Van de Velde’s drawings, sculptures, installations and moving images will be the subject of a special solo exhibition at the Museum Voorlinden, for which the artist will present his own work alongside his favourite pieces from the museum’s collection. Most known for his monumental charcoal drawings with a picturesque quality, Van de Velde creates intriguing, almost filmic scenes in which elements from reality and imagination merge.

Rinus Van de Velde’s work is included in the exhibition A Line Around an Idea, which brings together work by contemporary artists and architects whose practices demonstrate how drawing can be a creative – and disruptive – force, a way of knowing the world through observation, but also a medium that can redraw the lines to present different histories and representations.
