Kennis Muil / Knowledge Muzzle, 2019
Watercolour, 30 x 21 cm
Bade’s creations are incredible, especially what he does with the many people around him. We like his work with the breakdancers from HFC from Heerlen, his project with Tirzo Martha at the Rijksmuseum that depicts visitors’ experiences of the slavery exhibition, and his beautiful sculpture at ARTZUID, Amsterdam, which also fosters reflection and discussion.
For this auction, Bade submitted a work called Kennis Muil / Knowledge Muzzle about the eternal struggle of different insights and opinions. The confining sentiment of the adage ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’ is a central theme of this elegant work. As such, Bade implies there is much more for us to discuss together.
