The Master of Elsloo
February 2019 - June 2019
During the Middle Ages there was a vibrant wooden sculpture industry in what is now known as the Meuse-Rhine region. Unfortunately, in most cases we do not know who commissioned the sculptures or who made them. The artists responsible have therefore been given improvised names, the most famous of which is the ‘Master of Elsloo’. In this temporary exhibition Studio Kernland tries to involve visitors by asking them; which works do you believe are made by this master’s hand? Several routes throughout the exhibition focus on different details in the works (hands, hair and drapery). Small frames draw the eye to these details, making them easier to compare. Visitors are invited to fill in a ballot to register their vote.
