Habitat Sequences (1 through 25)
Materials: Wood, cotton, flax, cotton yarn, polyether foam, 400 cm × 2000 cm × 244 cm.
The impressive Habitat Sequences is made up of twenty-five fragments, each representing an aspect of the artist’s home, studio, and life. The components are hanging high up in the room, like the plants in his studio. Everything is falling and tipping over into one big chaos. This chaos in his studio, or his paradise, represents something that we all feel in these strange times; the uncomfortable and continuously growing realisation that we are not in control of what is going on.
Klaas Rommelaere (°1986, Roeselare) uses traditional crafts such as knitting, embroidery, and crochet to build his wild collages. For Paradise 2021 he launched an open call, and the many golden hands of local ‘madams’ made light work.
