War & Pieces - Bouke de Vries

At Harley Gallery

Description

London-based Dutch artist Bouke de Vries has created an epic eight-metre long table piece, using thousands of fragments of porcelain to create a scene of a fierce battle.


On the eve of a battle in previous centuries an extravagant banquet might be held, decorated with porcelain table sculptures depicting classical allegories or even the impending battle. ‘War & Pieces’ is Bouke de Vries’ contemporary response to this tradition. Besides war, chaos and aggression, the installation uses humour and beauty to satirise classical symbols.
