Sensory Spaces 9 - Beni Bischof

Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects presented in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, located in the freely accessible exhibition space in the museum’s entrance hall. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen invited Swiss artist Beni Bischof for the ninth edition of Sensory Spaces

Beni Bischof is the ultimate mix and matcher: in all his work he combines and adapts existing images, texts and situations. His work can be read as an ironic commentary on the banality of everyday life. And he doesn’t spare his own kind. He finds inspiration in everyday objects like dime novels, fashion, magazines, advertisements, but also in the virtual world.

For Sensory Spaces, Bischof created a disorienting installation in which the visitor could enter a system of corridors that lead to yet more corridors, with open and closed doors leading to chaotic spaces. In the three-dimensional installation all of the different media that Bischof is working with were being represented, also his passion – painting – can be found here.

Bischof’s installation could be viewed as a house to accommodate his ideas and works. Therefore it functioned as a gesamtkunstwerk: an interplay of various art forms.
