Ugo Rondinone / Vocabulary of Solitude

Museum Boijmans van Beuningen | 13/02/2016 - 29/05/2016

The first solo exhibition in the Netherlands of the Swiss-born, New York based artist Ugo Rondinone (b. 1964). The show includes both old and new works from Rondinone’s series based on the visual spectrum, including semi-circular paintings with concentric bands of colour and a giant light bulb made from wax. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a series of forty-five life-size clown sculptures: clowns who are either sleeping, dreaming, waking up, running or are simply standing around looking unhappy. With bright colors and distinct imagery Rondinone is able to give motifs from ordinary life a poetic dimension by isolating them or enlarging them.
