Bas Oussoren presents humorous situations that reinterpret the banality of the everyday. In his works, the spectator is always late to the party: the story has already been told or the punchline has already been delivered. This way, Oussoren undermines the clear distinction between fiction and reality, dropping the spectator between the material residues of a fictional situation. The artist creates his own world, with internal logic and humour as building blocks. While the humour seems personal at first, it requires our collective understanding in order to be funny. The crucial part of his work takes place in the conversion from object to art: the ability to reinterpret those things that are so obvious that we do not even care to look at them, but that are so wonderful they need no transformation at all.
