KUnstVlAaI – KARl PhilIPS


Karl Philips
Kunstvlaai: 21 – 25 May, 2014
Location: Amstelpark, Amsterdam

Hotel Maria Kapel invites you to the opening of Karl Philips at Kunstvlaai 2014, this Wednesday from 18
– 22 h, in the Amstelpark, Amsterdam.

Kunstvlaai offers artist-run-initiatives an international platform to meet, discuss, and exchange ideas. The tenth edition takes place at the Amstelpark, Amsterdam. Hotel Maria Kapel invited the Belgium artist Karl Philips to show a work at this year’s Kunstvlaai. For his installation, Philips hijacks a street lantern. The work, No Title is suspended by wooden wedges and its position held by gravity and the weight of the installation. Partly hidden by the trees of the park, the work recalls a PA-tower or prison watchtower while at the same time being reminiscent of a pirate’s nest.
