Das Spektakel

Berlin, Neurotitan gallery, fumetto Lucerne (CH). 2008

The installation was inspired by the famous monumental painting »De Intocht van Christus Brussel« (1888) by the belgium painter James Ensor. Originally planned as a stage design for a play about the painter James Ensors, Kæppel restates the carnivalesque, folksy actors in a colorful procession, based on the special aesthetic of Ensor. Contemporary heroes are Batman and Funkymary. Detached from any perspective rule, they deploy layered in the space.
