Bas van den Hout

In my work, I research personal memories and stories that can be understood through a collective unconsciousness. To relay these subjects, I make images of metaphors and archetypes, working mainly sculptural and with found objects. I deconstruct the objects and bring them back to their essence, making aesthetic choices that I base on the properties of the object. By customizing their appearance, the objects start to resemble fragmented body parts or get a physical reference. As I treat the object, I want to offer space to access the object in a different way.

In this process of transformation, I want to relate myself to the object or be able to redirect it into a concrete memory. By establishing a relationship with the object, I hope to find out slowly which aspect it is that grabs my interest. This often happens through an exploration of the attraction to a particular object, and the interaction between meanings and personal thoughts.
