Blaise Drummond (b. 1967) has developed a wide-ranging scenario of paintings, colour drawings, collages and objects for the Museum Haus Lange. At the heart of the exhibition is a dead tree, the top of which seems to be growing through the ceiling – reminiscent of Le Corbusier’s programmatic building Pavillon de l´Esprit Nouveau, which featured an indoor tree that grew up into the outside world. At the same time, the work acts as a reference to the dashed hopes of early Modernism. Yet these hopes live on in Drummond´s paintings: those white spaces that open up between the architectural and natural set pieces offer the viewer welcome locations for thinking and dreaming.
