BODY BAR

BEAUFORT LOCATION: GRASS ZONE NEXT TO THE KONINKLIJKE BAAN, BREDENE

Joep Van Lieshout

°1963, Ravenstein, The Netherlands 

Joep Van Lieshout gives the notion ‘sculpture’ a new meaning in his work. His monumental works are cross-overs between architecture, design, sculpture and painting, often with a functional interpretation. He enters the twilight zone between visual and applied art. For Beaufort02 Van Lieshout conceived a polyester sculpture in the form of a female torso wearing a bikini. The torso has hinges which open and close so that the work can also serve as a bar around which people meet. Body Bar was sunbathing next to the Koninklijke Baan and was clearly visible from the tram.
