Going Its Own Way

Presented next to established artists like Gilbert & George, Paul MacCarthy and Marlene Dumas, the KRC Collection also includes promising young talents such as Folkert de Jong and Roger Hiorns.

Over the course of the thirteen years, three main characteristics have emerged within the collection – the KRC Collection often tends to “go its own way”, it’s ‘visible’ and it is “communicative”.

Located in the Dutch town of Voorschoten in a building that equally has its own fascinating cultural, social and an architectural history of its own, the KRC Collection draws inspiration from the human figure and is themed on the human condition. To depict this, the collection makes use of a wide variety of materials and techniques – ranging from traditional oil paint to innovative computer techniques, resulting in a rich variety of surfaces and objects on display. Spread over the entirety of the ground floor, the viewer is encouraged to enjoy some ninety works that range from paint and pencil on paper, to video and the use of some not-so-conventional materials such as chewing gum, plastic and aluminium.

Here, in the first IC Online Exhibition from the KRC Collection we present works from their permanent collection.

Art should be an encounter and moreover a source of knowledge, inspiration and delight.
