The Holy Triangle is a special area in Oosterhout. It takes its name from the three adjoining monumental monastery compounds, surrounded by large monastic gardens and landscapes. This is the location of the 1ste Biennale Art in the Holy Triangle, which links contemporary art with the spiritual and artistic heritage of the Holy Triangle.
The theme of the 1st Biennale is ‘love’ and numerous artists – painters, sculptors, photographers, designers – whose work is centred around religion or spirituality, have been asked by curator Guus van den Hout to make a contribution, often in the form of new works.
The book, released to mark the Biennale, presents a sample of current art that is driven by religion and spirituality. For this reason, it is interesting not only to visitors of the Biennale but also for anyone interested in current art in that goes deeper.
