The deconstructed objects in Bas van Wieringen’s sculptures
Bas van Wieringen transforms everyday objects into sculptures, by removing their primary function. Discover them here!
A few years ago we talked about a similar project by another artist and it was about Katerina Kamprani and her impossible objects. Now, from Katerina’s Greece, we move to Holland, more precisely to Amsterdam, to talk about Bas van Wieringen who, with his unusual sculptures, manages to leave the spectator with no problems.
Bas takes everyday objects, like a nail, toilet paper or cigarettes and slightly modifies them, removing their primary function, but making them a work of art. After all, when an object becomes nothing, it can also be anything.
Thus, the initial nail is no longer used to hang a painting but goes in and out of the wall, the toilet paper rolls back into another roll and the cigarettes become unusable because they have the filter on all ends.
