Het geheel is meer dan de som van de delen
The psychological tests from the collection of the Dr. Guislain Museum were the inspiration for Het geheel is meer dan de som van de delen (The whole is more than the sum of its parts).
The work draws attention to the contrast between the aesthetics of the materials and the fact that they only illustrate certain aspects of a personality.
The wooden objects can be viewed from different angles, to point out the endless possibilities that arise when we look for the whole, for the individual in all of its facets, beyond the norm, beyond the separate elements.
Technique and material: wooden leftovers, glue, acrylic paint.
Exhibited in the expo ‘Collage’ at the Museum Dr. Guislain, Gent. 2020
