Leonard van Munster

Midden op dit braakliggende terrein heeft Van Munster een locatia gebonden werk gerealiseerd

Het likt wel alsof hier, een bewoner geweigerd heeft te vertrekken en dat de bouwput rondom deze woning al is algegraven. Dit werk verbeeld een vorm van protest en verzet, maar vertageldt ook een vorm van verlangen.

Het werk is geinspireerd op mensen in China, die niet willen wilken voor de plannen van een projectontwikkelaars Avonds brandt er lichte vanachter de gordinis en het wasgoed weppert in de wind Het geheel is gebouwd op den fractie van de werkelijke grootte Een maat die verwarrend werkt not te groot or ongeloofwaardig to zin en net te ken voor het echte geluk

In the middle of this undeveloped site. Van Munster has realised a site specific work.
It seems as if a resident has refused to leave and that the construction site around this house has already been excavated. This work represents a form of protest and resistance, but also portrays a form of desire.

The work is inspired by people in China who do not want to give way to the plans of a project developer. In the evening, light is lit from behind the curtains and the laundry blows in the wind. The whole is built on a fraction of the actual size. A size that is confusing: just too big to be unbelievable and just too small for the real joy ...

A work by the artist Leonard van Munster, who came to protest empty and abandoned places in Amsterdam.
In the piece that was first placed in 2015 and in its current location in 2019, a "house with residents" is shown, where although everything around is deserted, in the evening a light is on in the house and it seems that there is life in it.

The house was photographed on the same day by the same photographer Click for a larger image
