THE FAÇADE

BEAUFORT-LOCATION: WESTSTRAAT 111, BLANKENBERGE

Robert Kusmirowski

°1974, Poland

Robert Kusmirowski is mainly known for his masterly fakes. The theme of his fakes is always historical and the works he makes are highly realistic. Visitors are amazed when they realize it is a fake. The ‘master of misguide’ uses all kinds of materials for his replica. The materials are often not strong, so that the fake objects obtain some fragility, evoking the ‘pleatability’ and the volatility of the memory. In Blankenberge he made a facade replica of an existing slum in Poland. With this transformation he questions the contemporary mass production and the principle of originality.
