The Gold Rabbit ( Bronze Limited Edition 1/6)

The Gold Rabbit

... He popped out, just like that, one day, from my hat: sitting still and attentive... One ear more or less tilted depending on the secret that one confides in him and the material in which he is made to appear : A body made of plexiglass, carbon, steel, or aluminium... Why not a Golden Rabbit or a Silver Rabbit ?

...A few sleights of hand... Open your eyes now ! “The Rabbit” can be on a human scale or monumental, its dimensions will measure up with our dreams, whoever we are …

... “God is always doing geometry” wrote Plato. Joy now has a figure, a form, and volumes... Happiness is no longer an abstraction: it has a depth to it and four feet, that one just needs to caress to get a feel of bliss...

...A Rabbit like an ancient offering... A kind of Trojan Rabbit to let you into Wonderland... Soft and sweet... No one must be late when it comes to getting a kick out of life, repeats the Rabbit, at the entrance to the warren... The complicit wink of women, the lustful smile of men...

...The Rabbit at the “Origin of the World”, hidden behind the “Cony” of the Middle Ages... The “Cony” that naughty lads pushed into a metaphor and slid betwixt the thighs of lewd lasses... The “Cony” that lost, over time and at the razor’s edge, its ending in French, along with its last bits of hair... The “Cunt” revealed...

...The Rabbit of the « Garden of Delights »... Bosch’s Paradise within reach... A Rabbit sent down from Heaven … Happiness erected, one day, into a Cathedral... Stained-glass windows, to illuminate it…

...A prayer and a final sleight of hand... A herd of Rabbits coming out of the hat... Happiness multiplied... Rabbits of all sizes, each of them unique, sitting still, and attentive...

Even the trees are crying
The installation EVEN THE TREES ARE CRYING by Aurelia van der Burght, initially created out of glass, ceramic elements and steel wire, has emerged following the disastrous world in which we live in, and from which we can’t leave. We are responsible and inevitable part of the catastrophic events that will occur. A process that is brought to an end very slowly, almost without notice, like an incendiary tumor. Aurelia invited Hanne Schillemans – dancer, choreographer – to create a new theatrical reality in her own unique way by blending music and image with her movements. The music is composed by Ralph Timmermans, and he’s been inspired by the installation of Aurelia and the movements of Hanne. The performance of his music is done by musician Rob Cornelissen.

the insane
the work is part of a composition called vices. VICES These works represent an image of past, present and future vices. They narrate the ritual of everyday habits that interconnects various characters illustrated in their transformation (metamorphosis). Relations emerging therefrom give birth to a story. What are these relations? What is the story? I am attempting to stimulate the viewer to assess circumstances, I am trying to start an impromptu dialogue by association of two seemingly absent entities. Starting from the human dimension, each character – which may become an exemplary model to be meditated upon – makes reference to fundamental life experiences in a place (universe) dominated by the everlasting omnipresence of frustration, whose existence in time is intended to be anticipated. Therefore, these works are materialized in the visual plan of the imbalance between inner- and outer-self. My endeavors pursue a human urge, more precisely the reintegration in basic, day-to-day life of fragments of an excess (overabundance) of actuality (reality), represented in a condensed form through the details of a gest.

Description in German, English and French - please scroll down Die Darstellung des Unsichtbaren, die ausgehöhlte Form, welche sich vom Materiellen löst und sich wie ein poetisches Feuer zu erheben scheint. Trying to represent the invisible. A hollow shape of the non-existing carving. Allowing the material to be released from any gravity, like poetic fire. Représenter l'invisible. Sculpter en creux la forme de ce qui n'est pas. Permettre l'envolée d'une matière libérée de toute pesanteur, comme un feu poétique.

The big tread or The Evolution of the Diva
Portrait of hut designer Fiona Bennett The melodramatic and baroque swirl crowns fashion designer Fiona Bennett, indulging in overflowing and sophisticated hat finery. It is a hybrid staging. The wonderful purity of the bleached ostrich feathers meets the ostrich foot as an unembellished reminder of repressed phases of evolution.

An altar for an ordinary animal
Beeldenroute Landart Diessen An altar for an ordinary animal An altar for an ordinary animal manages to establish a connection between the church village of Diessen and the area where Landart Diessen takes place. In addition, visual artist Aurelia van der Burght brings an ode to the hare with this sculpture. This creature is equipped with special qualities. Fast, smart, alert, funny, symbolizes fertility, cyclic rebirth and magical power. There is, however, a duplicity in what is observed. The holy water containers change effortlessly into dipping sauces. The hare has been placed in the corner by many, we would like to eat in pieces during a festive meal.

Modules
the cuboid-like shape is a modified Platonic volume. It becomes a module in an architectural structure or a setting that can be hidden or visible. Inspired by the traces of old buildings one might find in an ancient place, the installation calls to mind how these crumbling individual components now only serve as silent witnesses. However, at one time may have been the key element of a wall, or ceiling, etc. Regardless of their prior functionality, the aesthetic potential overrides the previous story

H 70 x B 64 x T 6 cm HDF, Kunststoff, Lack, Acrylfarbe Edition, 20 Stk Wie drei Speichen eines Rades oder Strahlen eines Sternes streben die drei Grundfarben Blau, Gelb und Rot auf die runde Hintergrundscheibe zu einem gemeinsamen Tanz. Außerhalb der Scheibe noch jede für sich, mischen sie sich zu einem sich scheinbar rotierenden Farbkreis. Das Objekt kann mit einem Nagel aufgehängt werden. Alle notwendigen Utensilien sowie Montageanleitungen sind im Paket beigelegt. _____________________________ H 70 x W 64 x D 6 cm Hardboard, plastic, varnish, acrylic paint Edition of 20 pieces Like three spokes of a wheel or rays of a star, the three basic colors blue, yellow and red strive for a common dance on the round background disc. Outside the disc, each one by itself, they mix to a seemingly rotating color wheel. The object can be hung a wall with a single nail. All necessary utensils and assembly instructions are included in the package.

Dreaming the woods I
The project “Deaming the forest” talks about the ephemeral experience of standing in front of a tree; the incorporeal experience of remember the nature. The work reflects on the relationship between human beings and nature. It is a work about memory. I seek to reconnect with nature through memory. Remembering the experience of facing the wind, the leaves, the grass… The work is not explicit, everyone will read in it their own memory. Bringing the nature as a memory into the city is the only way to make it present.

Alice and the Cheshire Cat or Farewell to Wonderland
Alice, pale, innocent and distanced, has not only assigned her grin to the cat. She handed over her vitality exhaustively to the little cat-mummy, thereby creating an uncanny and Pygmalion-like inversion of what is dead and what is alive. A human and the beastly mode of existence. Fading away, her Victorian beauty reanimates the shrunken creature. As a cheshire cat it rises forever.

Moluccan Canoe
For the Utrecht city project 'Street wise', I was asked to create a work of art based on the street name Molukkenstraat. It is a facade stone that hangs on the wall of my home / studio, close to the street sign. This sculpture is part of the GPS tour through the Lombok district in Utrecht. Made by Peter Dubois in collaboration with Kosmopolis Utrecht. Watch the video below and hear the story behind the image. Video GPStour Lombok from Peter dubois on Vimeo

Siedlung
Gewachsene Strukturen und die Beziehungen der Menschen prägen den Mikrokosmos einer Siedlung auf engstem Raum. Dieser wandelt ständig sein Erscheinungsbild nach allen Seiten durch Zuzug, Wegzug, Neubau, Verfall, Zerstörung und Lückenfüllung. Zudem wirken globale Entscheidungen und Einflüsse von außen. Das Wechselspiel von inneren und äußeren Vorgängen gibt jeder Siedlung ihre einzigartige Historie und Gestalt.
