Willem de Haan believes in the value of humour. For that reason, the work he produces functions as a tribute to the funny and absurd situations he finds himself in on a daily basis. For his graduation last summer, De Haan showed twelve of these tributes on a tour through public space. At a high speed, on the back of a moped, the visitors were transported past the sculptures, paintings, prints, videos and performance. That happy seal in a partytent? Yeah, that was part of the tour as well.
For This Art Fair, De Haan will focus on the surroundings of the Beurs van Berlage, just to make sure your visit to the Dirk Supermarket on the corner will be only a tiny bit different from the grocery shopping you did yesterday afternoon.www.willemdehaan.com
