Nocturne. The Art of Hans Op de Beeck
(Nicola Oxley, Nicolas de Oliveira) The Low Countries - 2008, № 16, pp. 160-166
Hans Op de Beeck's prodigious oeuvre, spanning Sculpture, Installation, Photography, Video and Drawing, bears witness to his desire to question boundaries between media, and between artist and spectator. The task of the work is to engender familiarity, to unlock the audience's latent ability to recall, to remember, and then to locate their own experience in representation. The artist's vision, though deliberate and personal, is transformed by the work; these artworks, then, are employed as mnemonic triggers to locate the audience's own recollection.
