Jaap Scheeren: The day I took off my mask, I noticed my face was missing

Part of the maquette of Jaap Scheeren’s first solo exhibition at Flatland Gallery, 2011

Over de expositie

Scheeren is a free spirit, a truly witty artist with a keen sense of the absurd, who can shift from reality to theatricality without dropping a beat – as capricious and unpredictable as an unguided missile, he defies every visual convention. Still, he has managed to build up a cohesive oeuvre, in which numerous variables relate to each other and interact in surprising ways. This comes out forcefully in the exhibition The day I took off my mask, I noticed my face was missing. (excerpt from 'Jaap Scheeren is Nuts', by Frank van der Stok (1967), curator and art critic, Flatland Journal, fifth edition, 2011)
