Welcome to Gelatin and have a nice day!' Gelatin is taking over Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s large Bodon Galleries in May. Tobias Urban, Wolfgang Gantner, Florian Reither and Ali Janka are known for creating sensational situations that create interactions between people. The work of these internationally celebrated artists is known for its humour, disorder, absurdity and the active participation of the public. A fully functioning rollercoaster made from wood and plastic tubing, a lift that replaces electricity with manpower, a 50-metre-long toy rabbit in the mountains of Italy, and a rowing lake on the roof of a building: in their works, they attempt to get visitors actively involved, to stimulate their senses and to interrupt their daily routines in a radical fashion.

In the sculpture exhibition Vorm – Fellows – Attitude, Gelatin explores the human condition in an overtly playful manner. Their point of departure is the value of taboo-breaking confrontation and the liberated, light-hearted perspective that we have as young children. Gelatin invites visitors to step into this uninhibited world, to leave behind their adult identity and to feel like children again.

Vorm – Fellows – Attitude is a celebration of curiosity, of an open mind, and of judgement-free experiences and the absence of hierarchy and social conventions. The exhibition turns the museum’s normal activities on their head in a humorous manner. A visit to Vorm – Fellows – Attitude promises to be a true experience.

The members of Gelatin are among the world’s leading artists today. Since 1993, they have appealed to an international public through high-profile exhibitions across the globe. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is bringing the artists to Rotterdam for their first major solo exhibition in the Netherlands. With their exhibition Vorm – Fellows – Attitude, created specially for the Bodon Galleries, Gelatin is adding a unique work to its absurd and provocative oeuvre.
