Hans Op de Beeck: The Quiet Parade
In The Quiet Parade, Hans Op de Beeck’s hypnotic world takes over Amos Rex . The Belgian artist creates a new immersive installation, which invites the viewer to ponder the ordinary moments and the essential questions of being.
Hans Op de Beeck is known for his large-scale spatial installations and figurative sculptures capturing moments frozen in time, but he moves in a variety of ways between different media. Today, his almost monochromatic body of work also includes paintings, animations, texts, drawings, photographs, videos, opera and theatre. The reflection of our complex society, as well as the universal questions of existence and mortality, are frequently recurring themes in his art.
