More information

All the works of Klaas Kloosterboer (Zuid- en Noord-Schermer 1959) refer to painting. In the film ‘Ballast’ he ridicules painting and its art-historical traditions. Two enormous balls, made from grey plastic, are dragged along behind the artists’ car in a typical Dutch landscape. Kloosterboer seems to take vengeance on his own failed creations, thus referring to the Greek hero Achilles, who dragged the dead Hector behind his chariot.
