‘Odd|Birds|on|the|Move’ is an exuberant exhibition winged airships. Five feathered sky palaces, lush dream birds littered with eccentric follies and odd little bird people. Five grotesque cathedrals of a runaway fantasy. Or a humanity expressed in little stories and humor.
They are playful constructions built from a resourceful reuse of utensils and disposable materials, a floating realm of feathers, tea strainers, lamps, bottles, switches, gears, brushes, milk jugs, curtain rings, spark plugs, skulls, and more. What one encounters at home and outside processed to a bunch motley caricatures of human existence.
With this exhibition the Dutch artist Sjon Branðs shows his new airships, idiosyncratic work he two and a half years continuously worked on. Mountains metal, wood, glass, stone, porcelain, thousands of labels and tens of thousands feathers are gradually transformed into a cheerful landscape Dada dream worlds in 3D.
With the cooperation of ‘Fundación Bosch Y Bosco’and ‘Stichting Ateliers Tilburg’. Admission free. Information see: www.sjonbrands.nl.
