Koortsdroom. Versmelting van mens en dier
Contemporary artists show how humans and animals merge: intense, colourful, imaginative and often with an ominous edge.
Animals in fairytales, legends and popular culture often symbolise human characters and have human attributes. Fever Dream is an exhibition that examines the relationship between people and animals, in which contemporary artists show how animals and people merge: an intense, colourful, whimsical presentation, with a hint of mischief.
Beast and Feast
The exhibition centres on a new, previously unreleased video artwork by Prix de Rome nominee Josefin Arnell entitled Beast and Feast. It features a police officer in search of the perfect police horse. The psychological torment she experiences in her search becomes terrifyingly real as she gradually metamorphoses into her own ideal horse.
What's on show?
Frans Hals Museum presents Beast and Feast together with a unique mix of contemporary art illustrating the relationship between people and animals. From The Bird Game, a lugubrious fairytale by Marianna Simnett, and Dena Yago’s ironic flying elephant from the museum’s own collection, to the fantastic sculptures of Mamali Shafahi, and Donglai Meng��s ethereal paintings and special work from Jeroen Eisinga, Jana Euler, Valentina Gal, Hadrien Gérenton, Juliana Huxtable & Hannah Black, Marc Mulders, Markus Selg and Luuk Wilmering. This is a trip into a world of fantasy, a Frans Hals Museum exhibition in which to dream with your eyes open.
Please note that visitors may find some of the images disturbing.
