In a world driven by efficiency, speed, and standardisation, Dutch visual artist Frank Havermans envisions installations that slow down time. The futuristic, alienating constructions are literally redefining public space as we know it. These “interventions” invite us to experience space in an alternative way, challenging us to consider the identity of a particular location. Appearing rational, their geometric structures signal a latent mechanical intent. Havermans depicts an exhilarating style of shape and form in which objects have a distinct appeal, somewhere between archaic and futuristic. With texts by Lene ter Haar and Fabian de Kloe, Aaron Betsky, and Jens Maier-Rothe.
