Onzichtbare kogel. Kogel in kristal. Kogel in bergkristal [Invisible Bullet. Bullet in Crystal. Bullet in Mountain Crystal]
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7683_A).
At first sight, Copers’ work often appears highly accessible and it attracts with its beauty. But this is always followed by a moment of amazement. Things are never what they at first seem, or at least not entirely. His work is visually attractive, but has a hint of danger. The theatrical presentation of three bullets under a glass bell on a pedestal undermines the functionality of the use-objects and produces a sense of pointlessness, which is enhanced by the choice of dysfunctional materials.
