In the depths of the forest, Lord Halewijn plays his lute and lures women to his side. Besotted and entranced, they barely notice when his intentions turn from amorous to murderous. That is, until the king’s daughter is drawn in by his song, and must outwit the musician or become his next victim.
liedekijn is a sequential group exhibition that retells the medieval Dutch folktale, ‘The Song of Lord Halewijn’, through 24 artworks by local and international artists. The artbook collects the images from the exhibition and the translated, unamended text of the original poem.
