BERT JACOBS - 'UTOPIAN PRESENTS'
The installation Utopian Presents visualises a sculptural process with Utopian tendencies through a showcase that consists of a set of three posters and a trio of 'mannequins'.
In this prelude these 'objects from elsewhere' are forerunners of the unwrapping of presents.
