For his exhibition Little Cherry Virus, artist Kasper Bosmans (Belgium, 1990) draws from a multitude of sources, the first one giving the project its title. Each strand of investigation is incorporated within Bosman’s unique visual language and translated into paintings and sculptural ensembles.
An intuitive researcher and playful gatherer of material, the artist collects and transposes into his work formal elements and anthropological principles intrinsic to the studied phenomena, thus opening up a realm of meaning that surpasses them whilst celebrating or simply acknowledging them. What ties together the three investigations or anecdotes that lead to Bosmans’ new ornamental installation are the trans-historical dialectics between nature and culture.
Little Cherry Virus is the sixth exhibition in the series Not Making Sense As Something Else, which is reflected upon by Freek Lomme (moderator) and Marnie Slater (writer).
