Collecting art can be a life-enhancing experience, especially when you surround yourself with it at home. This is also demonstrated by the exhibition ‘Home is where the Art is’. At the Kunsthal, the collectors Johan Poort and Manon Visser will be inviting the public to step into their home, as it were – the place where they live amidst their joint art collection. Poort and Visser started collecting art five years ago. Different movements, periods, and both ‘high’ and ‘low’ art all meet and interact with each other in this diverse and intuitively shaped collection. Abstract works by Bram Bogart and Rotterdam-based artist Ton van Os alternate with vibrant, figurative art by people like Marlene Dumas, Yoshitomo Nara, Sungi Mlengeya, Pat Andrea, and Diederick Kraaijeveld. In an intimate, homely setting the public will be able to discover associative, unexpected connections between a wide variety of artworks that clearly show Poort and Visser's love of collecting.
