Sculpture Breathes Life:A Philip Haas Retrospective
at Museum Flehite
Museum Flehite in Amersfoort features a retrospective of the celebrated American artist and filmmaker Philip Haas (born 1954) from February 25 to June 25, 2023. In this exhibition, you will be immersed into the seductive and compelling creative world of the visual artist. The museum presents a broad selection from his multidisciplinary oeuvre: dozens of sculptures, reliefs, photography, paintings, performance, and five video installations.
Haas's groundbreaking work reflects a sensual and poetic dialogue with the history of art. Films inspired by vases from ancient Greece, Chinese scrolls from the Yuan Dynasty, paintings and drawings by Annibale Carracci, the ceiling frescoes of Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and the idiosyncratic work of James Ensor will be shown. A large number of sculptures are on display, many of them homages to canonical artists, such as René Magritte, Vincent van Gogh, Luis Buñuel and Giuseppe Arcimboldo.
