Jan van Munster In Motion 1970 > 2020

For Jan van Munster (Gorinchem, 1939), energy is both theme and material. In his glass and granite objects, energy is present as an implicit force, but energy also manifests itself explicitly and literally in works that generate heat, cold or light in situ, or with other forms of charge. The tension created by contrasts such as light-dark, warm-cold, attraction-repulsion and plus-minus is the subject of many of his works. The exhibition presents various aspects of Van Munster’s oeuvre, with his Ice tables as the glistening centrepiece: three tables of different sizes, as sturdy as a butcher’s chopping block and covered with a fragile layer of white ice crystals.
