Exhibition Roos Van de Velde Japanese Garden
Exhibition Roos Van de Velde
With the beautiful designs by artist Roos Van de Velde you will feel closer to nature than ever before during your visit to the Japanese Garden. All works of art are inspired by what can be found in nature, as well as by the changing of the seasons, just like in Japan.
At this exhibition you will also experience a mix of spirituality and beauty. Throughout the year there will be a wish circle present at the Shinto-shrine, where you can write your wish on a Japanese paper.
Every single visitor will receive a wishcard with a wish written in calligraphy at the entrance of the Japanese Garden. That way, they can contribute to the kotodama-ritual. The paper will then, in the spirit of ‘wabi-sabi’, slowly decay and become one with the earth.
March 24 – May 27 HARU/SPRING Feel one with nature by following various rites, or enjoy the beautiful pieces and movies which will be on display. The nature-theme of this exhibition will naturally be the blossoms.
May 29 – September 2 NATSU/SUMMER The rose. A true summer flower, which you can also find in the name of our artist. It’s the center of this part of the exhibition. For once, the little houses in the Japanese Garden will be taken over by roses, from the poppy to the ‘tsubaki’, or Japanese tea rose.
4 September – October 31 AKI/AUTUMN They can also be found in the Japanese Garden, the ‘ginkgo biloba’. Also known as temple trees, they are actual living fossils that have been growing on our planet for millions of years. Their wondrous shapes are the main focus in this autumn-part of the exhibition. Other elements in focus will be the moss, various rock formations and flowing waterlines.
