Summary note
The work of the Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck is interdisciplinary. It comprises large installations, sculptures, films, videos, photographic works, pictures, drawings, texts, theatre and music. For the assembly hall, Op de Beeck has created a fictive, monochrome, mystical garden landscape around a central pond. Surrounded by trees and monumental rocks, interspersed by Chesterfield sofas, the atmosphere evoked by the artist appears to suspend our earthly perception of time. The room-filling work sensitizes our perception of the environment and nature; we leave the conventional system of reference behind, lose our everyday relation to time, and find ourselves in a meditative and multi-sensory situation.00Exhibition: Kunstraum Dornbirn, Austria (01.06.-10.09.2017).
On the occasion of an exhibition held at Kunstraum Dornbirn, June 2 - September 10, 2017.
