Models for The Bat at museum Beelden aan Zee
With the exhibition Naked Roots, museum Beelden aan Zee shows the first Dutch solo exhibition of Johan Creten. Bronzes, ceramics covered in shiny gold or brightly colored glazes and some historical pieces from Cretens own collection change the museum into a sensuous “Wunderkammer”. The official model for fountain The Bat is also on show, plus several models that came before, thus showing the process of how the sculpture came to be.
