Honoré δ’O - Holy Molecule
Exhibition, Mu.ZEE, Oostende, Belgium.
Here, Honoré δ’O looks back at an oeuvre built up since the mid-1980s. The exhibition highlights key works from the artist’s rich body of work. The use of contemporary industrial materials give shape to a perpetually owing stream of thought. A pearl made of Styrofoam contains 98% air, and is one of the best forms of insulation material imaginable.
It is pure, whiter than white, anonymous, and – due to its outstanding recyclable properties – even sustainable. This anti-material par excellence provided Honoré δ’O with a material to express something non-material; its sterile, almost unbearable lightness opens up a new world, allowing our thought processes to be triggered.
