Studio 08, Hans Verhaegen
The contribution of Hans Verhaegen to KRASJ 4, ' Studio 8 ', is a follow-up to his solo exhibition at 'Garage Neven' last summer. The intention is that a room is recreated in a space where the connection is made between the creation in the studio at home, and the exhibition act in a public space. The different objects and procedures form a whole, as an installation which also accentuates the sensibilities of the space.
There are 3 computer screens with 12 animations on a table against the wall with just above the sequences of black human figures. The square tile pattern of the floor is painted here and there. On the window are lines and circles and a composition with transparent shapes. On the other long wall is a drawing again with lines and circles. The fourth wall is hung with a pattern of black figures. On all walls a related digital print is put on top of or next to the drawings.
The common basis of all interventions and objects is the consistent and frivolous use of a handful of simple forms and instructions. Primitive human figures in tight grids, in abstract constructions or as a kind of text. Black and white, lots of color, digital and analog.
The above arrangement was devised in the studio at home. The final disposition on site and the insight of the viewer will show to what extent this description will differ from the exhibition.
