Leonard van Munster Van Zijll Langhout / Contemporary Art

Van Munster’s contemporary installations are to be found mostly in public domain, where the surroundings play an important role in how it is experienced. Often they are situations or architectural structures which surrealistically appear at an unexpected spot, almost as if in a dream. Although Leonard’s pieces at first glance have a cheery or boyish look to them, there are more subversive ideas at their base. Recurrent underlying themes as desire, nostalgia and the search for happiness against better judgment. 

The pleasant appearance of his work has the effect of a layer of pink sugar frosting, creating a contradictory feeling. Most of Van Munster’s objects in public space can only be viewed for a short time. What remains are the memories and a photo... 
 
A selection of these destroyed works are exhibited at Van Zijll Langhout Contemporary Art.
