Niels van Bunningen
The last resort deus ex machina machine
"Ideologies in life, the decay of values and material are the themes present in the monumental work of van Bunningen. Emcompassing notions as primitivism and urbanism underlie is work.The indestructable material impresses and contradicts the decay.
His work emphasizes the moment of a monument. One of the sculptures presents the erosion of ideologies such as communism, fascism or capitalism. The work moves towards a large-size physical appearance of a personified historical moment."
