EXHIBITION: After Rodin – Erwin Olaf
Pictures of the Dutch National Ballet
19 NOVEMBER 2016 TO 30 APRIL 2017
Erwin Olaf honours Rodin with these series of photographs, made especially for the Groninger Museum. The poses are inspired by iconic sculptures of the artist, but are not literal quotations. The softness of the light and the details of the setting refer to his work. The models are dancers of the National Ballet. Olaf’s work often focuses on the nude and the shapes the human body can assume.
