For example Oudshoorn’s K-17 is a sculpture that may remind you of a graphite drawing or a black and white photograph and plays a game with your sense of perspective.
Andrea’s many sided works as shown here might probably be best described as optical lyricism.
Fouchy’s optical adventures vary from quite simple jokes to far more intricate works.
Touron’s Botanique (Botanical) is one of the more monumental works in the show.
Its simple concept contains a world of rich absurdity.
But undoubtedly the highlight of the show is Halmans’ Verlaten galerijflat (Abandoned Block of Flats).
It looks a bit like a big sum of the different aspects of Halmans’ works about which i wrote quite extensively in 2016 in Villa La Repubblica. Click here to read that article (in Dutch).
The works are still on show this week and over the weekend, so you have to hurry if you don’t want to miss this!
