Fransje Killaars



Collection: Bruikleen M HKA van Stichting Beeldende Kunst Middelburg/De Vleeshal (Inv. no. VH0247).

Fransje Killaars' colourful installations are three-dimensional paintings composed of hand-woven carpets, fabrics and strands of yarn in every colour imaginable. The relationship between humans and textile, the powerful impact of colour and the connectivity of textiles with everyday life have all captured Killaars’ imagination. Through the unusual combinations of colour and material, the work causes the viewer to view space in a way that is alien to the everyday gaze. The familiar role that blankets and carpets play in a cosy and homely atmosphere becomes something altogether new in the setting of a museum. An unfamiliar tactile obstacle is created, which alters what is typical of visual perception, forcing, as it were, the eyes to feel, rather than merely see.
