Siobhán Hapaska, La La La Human Steps
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
7 January – 17 May 2015
The major spring exhibition ‘La La La Human Steps’ in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen features a hundred works of art from the museum’s collection. They all deal with la condition humaine: human failings. Four top choreographers have each created a duet especially for the exhibition.
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is showing its own collection in the Bodon Rooms on a grand scale: from old masters to young talent, from immense installations to small paintings, from unnerving melancholy to entertaining absurdity. ‘When you look at the collection you see that artists from all ages and from all disciplines have made extremely personal images of the world. These images, you could say, are linked together underground,’ explain the compilers of the exhibition Sjarel Ex (Director) and Els Hoek (Education Curator).
The work of Siobhán Hapaska is exhibited alongside works by Vito Acconci, Bas Jan Ader, Carlos Amorales, Anoniem, Matthew Barney, Yael Bartana, Hans Bellmer, John Bock, David Claerbout, Joost Conijn, Dirck Vokertsz.
