Helmut SmitsA retrospective, and one or two new works
Rotterdam artist Helmut Smits wildly varied output is united by his subversive sense of humour. Sometimes dark, sometimes playful, but always engaging. Installations such as a Coca-Cola purifying machine turn Coca-Cola into pure drinking water. Tree In Front Of A Billboard places a tree which flowers in front of a billboard, producing a more attractive view for all but those paying for the advertising. Darker piece, The End, depicts all military fatalities in Afghanistan in the form of a film end-title sequence. At KK Outlet he will show a retrospective of various projects and installations.
