Hans Op de Beeck at Art Unlimited

Art Unlimited has run as part of Art Basel for ten years now. Launched as an experiment for exhibiting large-scale works and video installations in 2000, over time Art Unlimited has been open to all media and tecniques.
In 2009 Art Unlimited continues to play its strengths with some captivating new projects; projects that require extremely meticulous presentation, like the work presented by Belgian artist Hans Op de Beeck Location (6), a monumental sculptural installation, based on the historic panorama contructions created particularly over the past two centuries in Europe. Traditional panoramas (or dioramas, in the modern sense) combine a three-dimentional foreground with a painted background. Location (6), however, is made up entirely of a sculpted trompe l'oeil landscape, replete with fog and white light, a vast snowy landscape of barren trees from central observatory, reached via a long, narrow corridor.
