Gabriël Lester, one of Outline’s advisors, has been invited to make an exhibition. For this show, Lester not being a curator, took the approach to organize this show resembling his own working method as creator of films and installations.
« For A Haunted House of Art, the Outline space will be turned into a haunted house. It will be completely stuffed with artworks that are one way or another connected to the theme. A baroque mixture of various pieces of work by a great number of (international) artists, with various levels of experience, different audiences and ambitions, will show the figurative bogey in contemporary art…
By showing a huge number of works in the rather small, theatrical space, Lester likes to offer the possibility of discovering the spectator’s own experience from within the chaos of images and impressions. Particularly because the space seems to tell a story of its own, the shown pieces of art will manifest themselves to the audience as a mixture of objects, ornaments, decorations, and artworks.
The ultimate goal of A Haunted House of Art is to be an entertaining exhibition filled with expression. A real sight showing an overview of contemporary art forms while inviting the audience to investigate its own behavior of looking. »
