944 Handen, Hofke van Chantraine, Oud-Turnhout (BE), 15 DEC - 20 JAN 2019
October 26, 2018
Hofke van Chantraine dedicated its end-of-the-year exhibition to the theme of hands. '944 Handen' lets the hands communicate their story for a change. "Not only eyes, but also hands are the mirror of the soul. They narrate the past, the profession, someone's character and what this person does with his hands. They are a biography".
Koen contributes with an art piece called 'Domesticated Giant'. One marble hand,holding a chick. It symbolizes questions such as: 'Do we open or close the hand that holds the promise of a sustainable future?', 'Do we crush or embrace life?'. In this way Koen also designates a big responsibility to the hands.
