Honoré d'O

Honoré d'O (1961, Oudenaarde as Raf Van Ommeslaege and 1984, Gent as Honoré d'O) installations are one-off compositions of ordinary materials and objects without the least technical pretension. He constantly introduces new objects found by chance and thereby blurs the boundary between the work of art and the commonplace. The spectator becomes part of the work, his chance appearance and his interaction with the work function as a completion of the installations. His installations are informed by a sense of chaos in a web of underlying meanings and connections which constantly merge from reality into art and vice versa.
