Reading this morning an inspiring review on the widely celebrated exhibition, “Jheronimus Bosch – Visions of Genius”, held in Den Bosch – Jheronimus van Aken´s native town, i hurried up to “Bosch. Visions Alive”.
The multimedia show in Berlin (Alte Münze/Artplay Media) is one of the key events marking the 500th anniversary of the artist’s year of death. While Bosch´s works were present only through the magic of pixels, projected generously on huge walls and amplified by an artful sound, one experiences an entertaining hour, cradled in the soft rhythm of minimalist but captivating animations… As for myself, i am more for the uncompromising debauchery of senses through absorbing the brush paths, carving up the imaginary molecules of pigments and chasing whatever it´s left of the smell of legion of hands having caressed the oils and varnish.
The exit was of course through the gift shop. The offer was, alas, a bit meager and generic, so i gratified myself with a pigeon plume picked on the way out.
