A World of Men — works 2016-2017 Dirk Slootmaekers
This book is concerned with the characteristics of men. Man is able to do the most noble thingsas well a as the he most vulgar, solely by his thinking.
In Slootmaekers’ world, things start to tell stories. They gradually loose their objectivity to reflect the eye of both artist and viewer. A burglar visits, God has agreed to participate in the show, the washing machine gets sick and the artist’s father drops by.
This third overview of WORK is introduced by the artist talking about his work and choices made, illustrated with examples of early work.
