Zeger Reyers

Zeger Reyers has occupied himself with a topic more common to Dutch art than Norwegian, namely living art. The life he works with defines space and the life span makes the artist into a slow working sculptor of time. There is also an element of surprise in his work that is embedded in the fusion of form and space. There is also quite a lot of humour and irreverence in his handling of the artworks, as displayed in the gallery on the opening day of the exhibition at TENT. His mussel-chair is prepared, cooked and served. This eating-of-the-artwork has art-historical predecessors, but Zeger Reyers’ work also incorporates aspects of social intervention through the act of eating.
