KASPER BOSMANS - The Words and Days (mud gezaaid, free range)

21.01.2017 - 07.05.2017

The young Belgian artist Kasper Bosmans (Lommel, 1990) creates mysteriously elegant objects and paintings in which he intuitively combines his interest in local folklore and socio-historical anecdotes with the symbolic potential of materials. Like an artistic anthropologist, Bosmans combines stories and legends from different cultural and historical contexts in an associative manner. He blends these into speculative new mythologies for our demystified world. In this exhibition Bosmans responded to hidden histories in the collection of the Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem.
