JOS DE GRUYTER & HARALD THYS
8 February - 19 May 2013
Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys's exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp - entitled OPTIMUNDUS – is the broadest presentation of their work in Belgium and internationally to date, and will be followed by a second chapter at Kunsthalle Wien early in 2014.
The artists created an environment where a key selection of their works in all media is brought together, alongside a number of new works. OPTIMUNDUS is a panorama of de Gruyter & Thys’s practice, bringing their unique conception of the alternative reality into the realm of an exhibition scenario. Visitors to OPTIMUNDUS will also be joined by a cast of existing and new mannequins from the artists’ own universe.
