Sculptor Silvia B. does it again with an installation by the name of Les beaux et les plus beaux, a group of masked boys clad in white who are depicted playing with their white toys. From a distance, the figures appear attractive, yet a closer look reveals some aspect that leaves the viewer slightly uncomfortable. A small man who holds his own head in a stocking welcomes visitors to room where the exhibition is held at the GEM Museum of Contemporary Art in The Hague. Fairytale or nightmare?
Artist: Silvia B.
Les Beaux & Les plus Beaux runs from 15 November 2008 to 11 January 2009 at the
