Silicone rubber, acrylic, human hair, fiberglass, the lip of a tin can: Peter Zwaan comes to HOK and these are some of the materials he takes with him.
For the first time, HOK brings together the complete flora, fauna and other skin objects of the Dutch artist Peter Zwaan in one retrospective exhibition. So come and watch the African thumb bird, the camouflaged man fish, the forbidden fruit, the wall socket, the six-pack and so on.
In his work, Peter Zwaan explores the boundary between science and art, hyperrealism and abstraction, seduction and revulsion.
“I don’t feel the urge to tell or explain people something with my work. I want to show them the things I was curious about. And that will also affect the visitors. Come close and have a good look!”
Along with the expo, HOK publishes a limited edition booklet, which has an in-depth interview with Peter Zwaan and reproductions of his work. Riso printed in an edition of 50.
