In the footsteps of Saenredam in Stedelijk Museum Alkmaar

2018

  • Uitnodiging1
  • In Alkmaar, the Netherlands, the 500-year anniversary of the great orSt Lawrence Church will be celebrated in 2018. The city museum Alkmaar gives the festive kickoff of the Jubilee year with an exhibition of artworks of the great Church. Alkmaar paintings and drawings by two famous old masters – Salomon van Ruysdael and Pieter Saenredam – are combined with new work by two contemporary photographers: Hans van der Meer and Karin Borghouts.

    “I have admired Pieter Saenredam for a long time. His interiors are bright, clear and extremely precise. It was an exciting challenge to follow in his footsteps photographically. Nowadays Great St Lawrence Church in Alkmaar no longer has a religious function. It hosts exhibitions, concerts, parties and festivals. I took these events as my subject, with the church as the backdrop. I bring people into the picture like actors in a theatre. They are tiny so as to emphasize the grandeur of the church, as they were inSaenredam’s works.” KB
