Hans van Houwelingen’s work reflects its time and explores the past as a way of activity engaging with the present. Subtle interventions transform the context, thus creating fresh perspectives as well as new visions and paradigms. Today we are familiar with the tarnished future. In what way are we deluding ourselves? Do we know what time will bring forth? Van Houwelingen explores the fragility of dreams of heroism and shows us the irrevocability of unconditional surrender.
