A portrait of Kaspar Bonnén

In this portrait the Danish artist and writer Kaspar Bonnén challenges man’s relationship to space and feelings. With his paintings, poetry and installations he describes how the tangible space also includes psychological, social and political space that is personal and emotional. We stumble when we try to capture the actual space in his paintings. We are faced with the elusiveness of feelings when he leaves the flamingo words “I will always love you” floating their separate ways in the water and we are forced to reflect on the perishable nature of money when he is playing the role of a rich beggar and writes “Please help me” with shiny coins on the pavement.
