Museum Beelden aan Zee (Sculptures by the Sea) has a small exhibition around Israeli artist Eyal Assulin’s sculpture Virus.
Virus has the features both of a machine and of a gigantic spider and it makes a noise every now and then.
As a machine it seems to have lost its man-serving functions, but as a living creature it is quite dysfunctional as well.
There is another flawed machine, as
well as a video with a man (probably the artist himself) barking at a car.
Some drawings are on show too. In Assulin’s world machines have become cohabiting the world with human beings and other creatures, too big and influential to be futile, like their creators.
It’s in itself a nice and playful show, though not very profound, the video being my favourite.
