Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck is at home in almost all artistic media. His sculptures and expansive installations, his paintings, his large-format watercolours and drawings, his animations and videos all manifest the dramatic strategies of the stage, of film and of architecture.
His works spanning the past 10 years like a series of open stages that engage with the surrounding space of Museum Morsbroich. Visitors can step into this world of art, sometimes in the mind, sometimes quite literally.
The artist whisks us off into a world where reality and fiction overlap, in which time appears to stand still, an ambience of suggestive scenarios reminiscent of film stills.
Accompanies the exhibition Hans Op de Beeck: The Silent Castle, 12 Feb – 30 Apr 2017, Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany.
