Willem De Haan challenges and undermines the socially conditioned and politically determined rules of everyday locations. By adding artificial elements in a convincing yet uncanny manner his works exert direct influence on daily situations. These suggestive sculptural interventions also reference the influence of props on fictional scenarios in film and theater. In other words, De Haan wishes for his works to function as a tribute to the already confusing moments and situations we experience in our daily lives. ‘A good tribute does not explain its subject, it just strengthens it.’
