herman de vries
to be all ways to be

Curators: Colin Huizing and Cees de Boer
Commissioner: Mondriaan Fund
9 May - 22 November 2015

herman de vries (1931) was representing The Netherlands at the International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia 2015. Under the title 'to be all ways to be' the Dutch pavilion exhibited new sculptures, objects, works on paper and photography by de vries. Educated as a horticulturist and natural scientist, de vries gathers, orders, isolates and displays objects from nature, directing our attention to both the unity and the diversity of the world around us. In his preparatory travels to Venice, de vries collected many objects from the Laguna, the Giardini and the city, resulting in multiple works both in the Dutch Pavilion and on the deserted island of Lazzaretto Vecchio in the southern Laguna.
