From 6 December 2020 to 17 January 2021, Museum Valkenburg will be showing a collection of icons in the Jacques Vonkzaal, made by Marlies Lambermont.
For this period around Christmas, it was decided to familiarize visitors with icons, the theme of the “Nativity” and the representation thereof from different countries. Although the theme of the icons is identical, the effect is very diverse. The use of colors, shapes and gold differs per country / region.
Icons of angels and other saints are also on display. Marlies works in a meditative way, that is, “From the dark to the light”. Byzantine music strengthens its inspiration.
During this exhibition a film will be shown, which was recorded by TV Limburg in the library of Valkenburg and in her studio, in which her working method is easy to follow.
