This solo exhibition reflects transformation in its many manifestations: the permanence of change in various artistic forms, as well as the experience of the viewers. The artworks exhibited are in a process of permanent invention, a never-ending metamorphosis. Here I use history as a departure point for a re-inventions of form and meanings. This takes the shape of deconstructions of the classical idea of image and sculpture. The forms are, Rorschach-test-like assemblages of flat (metal) plates, which present multiple- perspectival forms of sculpture (metamorphoses), when the viewer moves around them. I invented this strategy in order to reveal hidden meanings in topical or familiar motifs, to challenge established perceptions and interpretations. In this exhibition particularly, I focussed on well-known “collateral” or “downsides” of dominant political and economic views. This came close to the uses of montage as pioneered by John Heartfield and developed by contemporaries such as Hans Haacke. Metamorphosis also featured an installation containing living birds, which will complete the sculpture during the exhibition.
