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. Op de Beeck combines banal and decorative objects, everyday postures and traditional poses, nature and culture into fascinating environments. Of his artistic work Op de Beeck has written: “The works are a commentary on our tragic-comic human condition, on how we manipulate our living space, in things great and small, in the manner of a stage set, and on how in this anthropomorphized environment we attempt to ward off our irrelevance and mortality with rituals and habits.
The publication accompanies the exhibition at Kunstraum Dornbirn.
