Daan Gielis (1988, BE)
nog even voor de zon opkomt
21.05.2014 – 25.05.2014
For this edition of Kunstvlaai, Apice for Artists invited the young Belgian artist Daan Gielis for a spatial intervention in Amstelpark. The specific context of this highly cultivated park resonates Gielis’ interest in architectural and cultural forms as a means to construe meaning. The installation evokes an atmospheric party. It anchors the autonomy of human creation, and yet puts it in perspective through the use of classical sculptural elements. As such it is reminiscent of the park’s constant battle to keep nature well ordered and structured.
