Villa De Ooievaar is situated not far from the beach of Ostend, Belgium, in the region of Flanders. The beach is a long strip of white sand that opens upon the North Sea. On the seafront, the low-rise buildings facing the sea have replaced the singular constructions of the Belle Époque. Large format photos hang under the columns of Thermae Palace that invite visitors to imagine how the beach was before its complete restructuring during the period between the two World Wars.
For his second solo show at Galleria Federico Vavassori in Milan, Kaspar Müller transferred the majority of his studio to the gallery. On view were makeshift tables covered with plastic trinkets, bottles, and papers; sheets of plywood with abstract smears of paint; mirrors affixed with photos of Müller’s past works or photos he’d taken; a shelf with blank CD-Rs; and materials from a construction site. Here, Müller and Vavassori discuss the exhibition with writer John Beeson and writer-curator Arthur Fink.
