Hans Op de Beeck: All Together Now...
13 January 2007 - 10 March 2007
Galerie Ron Mandos, Amsterdam, NL
Having long plunged himself into the many facets of alienation and absurdity of past rampant post-modern urban existence, the artist now turns his attention to the interior. For the exhibition “All together now...” Hans Op de Beeck has created a collection of works that use the family and domestic surroundings as bearers of meaning.
What does a deserted table say about the gathering that has just taken place? How does a child remind himself of a row at a family party? What can be read between the lines of cleanliness and propriety? To what extent are we all attached to domestic objects? When does a banal everyday object become the silent witness to a domestic drama?
