In 2018, Kasteel Wijlre presented, in collaboration with Lismore Castle Arts, the international group exhibition Traces. With works by 10 contemporary artists, whose contributions are interwoven with artworks from the former collection of Jo and Marlies Eyck, Traces explored the relationship between art and nature. The exhibition was presented in the Hedge House, the Coach House and the Garden at Kasteel Wijlre, The Netherlands. The exhibition opened on July 5th and continued until November 18th , 2018.

The designed gardens, planting, and surrounding landscapes of Kasteel Wijlre and Lismore Castle Arts are in a continuous state of change that is both respectful of tradition and always open to contemporary developments. It is this dynamic of the past and present, of management and conservation, of reflection and provocation, and of growth and decay that was reflected in the exhibition’s artworks. Walking around the country estate, Traces subtly revealed the idea of conflict: a battle that leaves its mark and is constantly present in nature.

Curators: Paul McAree and Brigitte Bloksma
