Catharina Van Eetvelde: Ilk

Kunstmuseum Basel

26 Nov 201612 Mar 2017

Kunstmuseum Basel presents “Ilk”, a solo exhibition by Catharina Van Eetvelde: using an approach that is downright anthropological, the artist analyses and investigates how the natural sciences shape our lives and our conceptions. After the catastrophe at Fukushima, the concept of material became of central importance for the artist: what lies behind this is the question of the connection between all things and all living beings. She designates this similarity with the Old English term ilk, which provided the title for this exhibition.
