Kasper Bosmans

°1990, Lommel (BE) – lives and works in Brussels (BE)

Kasper Bosmans dives deeply into the rich cultural history of materials, objects, traditions and customs. The references in his work betray a broad spectrum of sources, from folkloristic stories and cultural practices to historic research on painterly techniques or botanical cross-breeding. He continuously expands on his interests, subjecting them to careful scrutiny.

Legends is a series in which this affluence of references is clearly visible. The title refers to both a story of the past, as well as a brief explanatory text. By combining a multitude of references and compiling the different elements from his field of study into a new visual narrative, Kasper Bosmans creates a highly poetic visual mythology opening up the possible meanings all individual elements might have.

The work of Kasper Bosmans has been shown internationally, among others at S.M.A.K., Ghent; CIAP, Hasselt; Pakt, Amsterdam; Muzee, Oostende; Wiels, Brussels, Spring Workshop, Hong Kong; Kunstmuseum Stavanger; and Beaufort 2015.
Upcoming solo exhibitions include S.M.A.K., Ghent; Witte de With, Rotterdam; and De Hallen, Haarlem.
