Sitting and seeing

Had reason to go to Utrecht yesterday, and some spare time while there. So I looked up what was on offer at the Utrecht musea. Turned out they had a good’un: Double Act. Billed as “Masterpieces in paint and video
How do artists of today and yesterday represent human emotion? In Double Act, contemporary video art and seventeenth-century paintings rub shoulders in an exhibition that investigates what it means to be human.
” Double Act sets painting and sculpture from the museum’s permanent collection side by side with video work of contemporary artists. Sometimes this partnerings comes across as forced, this time I really enjoyed it. The Bill Viola – one that has a man disappearing in fire on one side and a man disappearing in water on the other – alone is worth going and sitting and seeing. Moving … in all senses of the word.

Second time around I took pics:
