Entity of Zoon // Florian Borstlap // September 12 – October 27 // Teilingerstraat 128
Meet the new Messiah at Roodkapje! Florian Borstlap created his own mythology around the Zoon. Based in this mythology, he designed and fabricated artifacts, sculptures, drawings, relics, processions and social structures.
Bostlap plays with the relationship between reality and fantasy, whilst simultaneously reflecting on religion, hegemony and social structures. Bostlap does not merely create objects and surroundings for the myth around the Zoon, he also determines morale, ethics, norms, values, traditions, customs and actions.
He explores the vision in which man is seen as god, in doing so Bostlap combines elements from several religions and beliefs. The materialization of this mythology and the creation of this different world are leading to growing own universe, in which his ceramic objects, images and drawings are the tangible proof.
Entity of ZOON is Roodkapje’s third presentation from the We are the world program through which we explore ideas on a better, future society through art.
Roodkapje will publish a publication for Entity of ZOON edited by Teodora Kotseva. The publication will be available at Roodkapje’s Megashop!
