Film: David Lynch: The Art Life

This fascinating documentary about David Lynch as a visual artist takes us on an intimate journey through the formative years of his life. Essential companion piece to the exhibition Someone is in my House at the Bonnefantenmuseum.

David Lynch: The Art Life invites us in and gives us a private view of his compound and painting studio in the hills high above Hollywood, as Lynch retells personal stories from his past that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus, only to fade again into the past, leaving an indelible mark on Lynch, the artist. We become witnesses to the fears, misunderstandings and struggles that Lynch overcomes and along the way, meet the various people that have helped to mould him. It becomes evident early on in Lynch’s life that he views the world differently, absorbing its shadows and weaving a dream like tapestry for audiences worldwide to become tangled in.

Opening exhibition The Floor is Lava

For the theatrical exhibition The Floor is Lava, artist duo Sander Breure and Witte van Hulzen will populate Marres with sculptures and moulded portraits of people in everyday environments. Made from different materials, clay, cloth and wood, the figures have expressive faces but are otherwise sketchily composed with stick legs, half torsos and loosely hanging pieces of cloth. They are actors in search of a play as much as they are compositions of identity, that fictional moment of stasis in a world that is constantly on the move. The premise here is that people always play a role, different in every situation, with specific character traits and body language.

Opening: Saturday 16 March | Until 4 August 2019 | 5.00 p.m. | Open: tu-su | 11.00 - 5.00 p.m. | Marres - Maastricht
