Energy is for Jan van Munster both the theme and the material; its presence is implicit in materials thar have been formed through energy, such as granite and glass, but energy can also explicitly and literally manifest itself in artificially created heat, cold and light or in other forms of charged energy. From an 'hors commerce' edition of 22 (roman) hand-numbered and signed copies issued without the slipcase. Third volume in the S-reeks. First group exhibition in Gorcum (Netherlands). # Jan van Munster is a sculptor as well as an installation and light artist. He is best known for his minimalist light sculptures but he has also made several short videos exploring the light in connection with the human body. The key theme of his work seems to be energy, both as the theme as material.This can often be seen as opposites: hot/cold, plus/minus or as in his videos: light/dark.
