EGON VAN HERREWEGHE & THOMAS MIN
Crisis of Masculinity (Cut 3)


"Crisis of Maculinity" is the title of the joint work by Egon Van Herreweghe (1985, Gent BE) & Thomas Min (1992, Leuven BE), an exact replica of the striking blue steel fence in Muscle Beach, Venice, Los Angeles. Since the beginning of 2019, it has been integrated into the exhibition space of the newly opened Kunsthalle Gent. Over the duration of the exhibition, the artists cut out parts of the fence in order to relocate them to public space or private grounds. The fragments thus live on elsewhere as foreign bodies, independent of opening hours and long after the end of the exhibition. "Cut 3" is the third cut from the sculpture in Ghent and was made especially for the exhibition Five in Fives for the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof.
