Filmer/photographer Andy Tan made a short video in which Chris Berens explains what inspires him: “I believe in fairy tales. I believe in magic.”
Chris Berens is widely considered as one of the most promising young Dutch artists. This documentary follows him during his preparations for his first show in Japan. It shows he gets his inspiration from his inner world.
Actor/painter Jeroen Krabbé traces the path of Vincent van Gogh and visits the institution in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence where van Gogh was admitted after a psychological crisis. During this period of confusion, disappointment and loneliness, van Gogh made a self-portrait that is now the source of inspiration for a self-portrait made by guest artist Chris Berens.
