Bierenbroodspot in Petra
"And then I saw Petra… it was like stepping into my own paintings, and more… it was like a very slow progress of stepping into metaphors of archaeology, architecture and mythology and tried to capture and put into another space (that of a lardge piece of rice-paper) these phenomena of the unconscious mind."
Painter and sculptor Gerti Bierenbroodspot spent a decade working in Petra. In Leiden's exhibition, a separate hall is dedicated to the series of sculptures and monumental paintings she created there. Most of these come from private collections. Some of the paintings are now displayed to the public for the first time.
Gerti Bierenbroodspot’s quote comes from Judith Weingarten´s The Archaeological Worlds of Gerti Bierenbroodspot, published in 1998 by Waanders Publishers.
