CATALOGUE NOTE
Folkert de Jong reinvents monuments and classical figurativesculpture by combining fictional and factual histories intolife-sized sculptural tableaux. His sculptures are made fromunconventional, industrial insulation materials – styrofoam andpolyurethane foam – whose color palette of baby blue and pink andtheir coherent toxicity are what he refers to as, 'one big moralcontradiction'. Best known for work that employs the vehicle of the'grotesque', De Jong reflects upon the paradox of contemporary lifewhere advances in global policy, economics, science and art existalongside the continuous forces of war, misfortune and catastrophe.While his characters often embody the darkest side of thehistorical and contemporary geo-political terrain, theynevertheless maintain an underlying humor and humanism. As Prof.Dr. Kitty Zijlmans describes in an essay: 'it attracts and repelsyou; it is horrifying and humorous, melodramatic and macabre,caricatural and confrontational. And all at once.'
