ZIEL


In search of freedom, lightness and unexpected encounters. What keeps us from embracing life and breaking through the restrictions we impose upon ourselves?

In Conny Janssen’s most recent work, we find ourselves in our prime, including all insecurities and contradictions that go with it. Can we accept life without being paralyzed by the challenges that lie ahead.-|-
Are we prepared to take risks? Can we feel comfortable if life does not comply with our intentions and wishes?

ZIEL is an ode to life, with its ups and downs, its surprises and disappointments. From moments of contemplation to exuberant celebrations, from hard confrontations to hopeful expectations. In ZIEL, we give vent to the urge to be free and reckless, bring a breath of fresh air and dive into the deep, without fear or trepidation.
