Ossip Zadkine – Instinct for the substance exhibition at the Zadkine Museum, 28th September 2018 – 10th February 2019

Not far from our hotels, the Zadkine Museum (that we visited for you last summer) has a new exhibition on offer – Ossip Zadkine – Instinct for the substance – which pays homage to the sculptor’s particular approach to the various raw materials he used.

With many specially-loaned works, the exhibition shows Zadkine interpreted each raw material differently, finding veins in wood, using the particules in rock and being inspired by the fluidity of gouache.

Zadkine believed these materials were ‘inductive’, possessing what he called ‘formal powers’, and the way he approached them adapted instinctively depending on which raw material he was using, thus explaining the title of the exhibition!
