Out of Office
Holy Molecule is the title of Honoré δ'O’s most recent retrospective. Since the mid-1980s he’s been introducing trivial objects such as dust masks, Styrofoam granules, cosmetic cotton pads and plastic tubes, which are used to obfuscate the boundary between daily life and the work of art.
Honoré δ’O’s unique ability is to sublimate the most fragile and worthless items in surprising, playful constellations. His installations always look very recognisable and yet, simultaneously, entirely alien. Every work is a new trap waiting to be sprung on our visual laxness, thereby creating free space for the mind, a laboratory full of unlikely interactions. His visual riddles suggest a web of underlying meanings and connections, with reality constantly turning into art and vice versa. It’s up to the viewer to decode his ironic vocabulary and immaterial grammar. Courtesy of Kristof De Clercq Gallery, Ghent.
