In his so-called flatscreens, Dutch artist Ger van Elk transforms existing paintings into moving images.
A number of these works are based on neo-impressionist paintings by Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Henri Edmond Cross. On the occasion of the Georges Seurat exhibition, the museum is showing this series of flatscreens in a complementary presentation. This is the first time that Van Elk’s Snow over Seurat and Seurat’s La Grève de Bas-Butin à Honfleur, upon which it is based, are being shown simultaneously.
