Koen Taselaar. Rollable Ramblings is the first comprehensive publication on the textile work of Koen Taselaar (Rotterdam, 1986).
The majority of Rollable Ramblings comprises reproductions of his tapestries, and zoom-ins on them. This visual component is complemented with essays shedding light on the works, and on the history of textile art in general, written by art critic Katalin Herzog.
Special edition made in collaboration with the Textiellab, the professional workshop of the TextielMuseum.
The work of Koen Taselaar is a unique universe in which only he determines the rules. He makes skillful drawings, but also clumsy ceramics and elaborate Tapestries.
Taselaar’s visual language emerged from the grey area in which text is not only meaning but also form. He expresses this in drawn puns, imaginary record sleeves or large psychedelic paintings. In search of ways to process his diverse output, he makes publications and large scale drawings, which function as flat exhibition spaces. Taselaar is continuously working to further develop his wide scope, for example by learning new techniques in several residencies.
Taselaar was nominated for de Volkskrant Beeldende Kunstprijs and has exhibited a.o. at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, MMCA Changdong in Seoul, Kunstmuseum The Hague, Centraal Museum Utrecht and The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg.

| On the process of looking, seeing and interpreting.
| A narrative beyond photographs into the passages of world history.
'Plunge into Jasper de Beijers’ mind and let yourself be swept away into the passages of world history as it all flows before your eyes as in a dream. And grab hold of each other if you are in danger of losing your balance.'
- Arnoud van Aalst, Director of Museum Rijswijk
The world that Jasper de Beijer (Amsterdam, 1973) presents to us through his photographic works are fascinating, familiar and disconcerting all at the same time. His work is about the process of looking, seeing and interpreting. At first you think it’s a photograph of reality, but then you see it’s a photo- graph of a paper model. You are swept into a narrative that is more than a photograph. You need to respond in some way, but how? This is precisely the question the artist is asking us: Do you really know what you are seeing?
The publication Critical Mass. Jasper de Beijer and the exhibition of the same name were made possible by the support of the Agnes van den Brandeler Museum Prize, jointly awarded to Museum Rijswijk and the artist.
With text contributions by Arnoud van Aalst, Diana Wind and Merel Bem.
