Mark Brusse, born in 1937 in the north of the Netherlands, attended the art academy in Arnhem and settled permanently in Paris in 1960. His stay there was and is regularly interrupted by his numerous trips to all continents, which have also left their mark in his secular oeuvre. Brusse is no stranger to the Netherlands, but he is more famous in Paris than in his homeland. In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in this artist in the Netherlands, who gained fame for his many works in public space and his place in international museum collections, including in the Center Pompidou and the Musée d'art Moderne in Paris. In 2019, an exhibition about his work was shown in the Het Valkhof museum in Nijmegen. An overview will once again be presented in the Beelden aan Zee museum, but this time entirely focused on Brusse's sculptural oeuvre, from his early works to very recent works, in about 90 objects. The exhibition focuses in particular on his worldly gaze, his universal symbols and how he uses them in his poetically assembled images.
