ZOO

1989

Antwerp, Belgium

Piet Van's concern for endangered animals inspired him for this project in 1989 in cooperation with WWF. ‘Zoo’ consisted of a series of acrylic paint on canvas, meticulously portraying fragments of animal skins and furs. By combining the paintings with sound, he increased the surrealistic atmosphere of his exhibit. In the zoo of the year 2100, the only remains will be the animal sounds and their dead skins.
