Weiss ist eine reine Erfindung.

Review on my show at Blitzkunst. For full article click here.

“Kunst ist immer abhängig vom Raum, in dem sie gezeigt wird. Mit der Installation eines Werkes steht man vor der Herausforderung, die Gegebenheiten des Raumes zu nutzen und sich gleichzeitig dagegen zu behaupten. Ten Bosch hat diese beiden Notwendigkeiten zu einer Einheit verbunden und überlässt dem Betrachterauge die Entscheidung über die Gewichtung zwischen Kunst und Raum.” – Annika von Taube at Blitzkunst.wordpress.de

Entities (1994, 2012, 1911)

When the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre in 1911, the museum received more visitors then ever before. The same thing happened when ‘The Scream’ was stolen from the National Gallery in Oslo in 1994. The people lined up in front of the empty space that the painting had left behind. Continue Reading →

If paradise is half as nice #3

From the 6th of august till the 7th of september 2014 I spend my time working in Leipzig.

Parallel to this presentation we had a small show at Post-Industriale as a teaser for our factory show as well.

Hatch

 

During the ‘Verborgen Tuinen 2013′ event, I created a closed hatch at the garden of a housing block in Charlois, Rotterdam. This hatch could be a way to pass to another space,  basement, tunnel or whatever. But in the meantime it is also an exit from such a space to the garden. What it really is we will not know, because the hatch appears to be locked tight!
