Artist Sharon Van Overmeiren (Antwerp, 1985) made a selection of drawings, prints and books from the collection of the Museum Plantin-Moretus for the print room of the KMSKA. She confronts them with her own sculptures, which are created from parts of the most diverse objects. Where, when and by whom the original material was created is unimportant. Van Overmeiren combines the images freely and intuitively. There are no object labels in the exhibiton. As a result, the distinction between well-known artists and anonymous artisans disappears. Van Overmeiren presents the works in eleven surprising ensembles with an obscured chronology. The new, unexpected connections produce a playful result.
