Leo Copers

1979

Sculpture, 40 x 89 x 206 cm.
Materials: rope, velvet, gilding

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK5203_M16).

In Gouden strop en stoel [Golden Noose and Chair] Copers juxtaposes the horror of suicide or death, possibly by suicide, with baroque shapes and colours that enhance the contrast between the material riches of life and our mortality. Yet Copers’s assemblages do not inspire feelings of aggression or disgust. He always allows an element of humour and irony to balance the existential drama.
