Ton of Holland, Medical Body Jewels; Galerie Ramakers, The Hague

With collages, embroidery and paint Ton of Holland (Ton Hoogerwerf, 1956) shows in Galerie Ramakers works in which the usually somewhat obnoxious world of disease becomes a world of symbolism and a kind of decadent aesthetics.

He does so unabashedly and with a sense of humour through which an understanding of the realities of our lives as biological creatures is felt.

It is fun, beautiful and maybe a bit painful.

The show is in its last week, so hurry up to see it all in real/unreal!
