Hans Klein Hofmeijer had consequently numbered his artworks since 1979. After almost forty years he is approaching the thousandth ‘artefact’. The publication Artefact no. 953 – Gaps in my mind has a separate status in his oeuvre. Colleague-artists, photographs, former museum directors, art historians, collectors, a scientist, gallery owner/curator, designer and a poet react to the work of Hans Klein Hofmeijer. In a personal way they provide insight into the oeuvre of Klein Hofmeijer. In a layered, organic way it also becomes clear who Hans Klein Hofmeijer is as an artist and a man. Artefact no. 953 – Gaps in my mind is above all a silent force. One by one, the viewers and readers discover what is hidden behind the visible. The handy book challenges to ‘look inward’ and wonder, free of judgment.
