Dear Reader

This summer, Karin Borghouts' new exhibition Vincent was here will be on display in Antwerp. Vincent van Gogh stayed in Antwerp in Belgium for three months in 1885-1886.
Too bad, the exhibition The House has ended now, but the new photography book The House is still available and two group exhibitions in Knokke and Ypres Belgium have started. We wish you a nice summer!

Vincent was here

Photographer Karin Borghouts followed the path of Vincent van Gogh from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise in France. She has also reconstructed more of 30 of his still lifes and photographed them. Vincent was here is a visual investigation exploring the boundary between photography and painting.

The exhibition takes place in art gallery and bookstore Rossaert. In this Vincent was here exhibition, the accent lies on the still lifes: from dark Brabant still lifes in Rembrandtian light to exuberantly colourful still lifes and bouquets from Vincent’s Southern period.

This Vincent was here exhibition is part of the AntwerpPhoto Festival which takes place at only 5 minutes walking distance. A walk has been mapped out from the Pilotage Building to the participating photo galleries in Antwerp.

The book Vincent was here is published by Ronny Van de Velde and is available in Rossaert and in the bookshop of Antwerp Photo or online.

Rossaert used to be a ​‘klakkenwinkel’, a shop selling sailor’s caps and uniforms, located in Antwerp’s sailor's district. The century-old house is situated against St. Paul’s Church and has three floors. It has been meticulously restored while retaining the original shop fittings. Rossaert is a branch of Gallery Ronny Van de Velde.
