Kasteel Wijlre presents, in collaboration with Lismore Castle Arts, the international group exhibition Traces. With works by 10 contemporary artists, whose contributions are interwoven with artworks from the (former) collection of Jo and Marlies Eyck, Traces explores relationship between art and nature. The exhibition is presented in the Hedge House, the Coach House and the Garden at Kasteel Wijlre, The Netherlands.

The designed gardens, planting, and surrounding landscapes of Kasteel Wijlre and Lismore Castle Arts are in a continuous state of change that is both respectful of tradition and always open to contemporary developments. It is this dynamic of the past and present, of management and conservation, of reflection and provocation, and of growth and decay that is reflected in the exhibition’s artworks. Walking around the country estate, Traces subtly reveals the idea of conflict: a battle that leaves its mark and is constantly present in nature.

Curators: Paul McAree and Brigitte Bloksma
