Bas Jan Ader

Broken Fall [geometric] . 1971

+ Bas Jan Ader

Bas Jan Ader's performances touch on the notion of vulnerability in a tone that is at once dramatic and comic and which is removed from any narrative context. Simple, mysterious and implacable, the experiences the artist exposes himself to appear to question the meaning of life and human existence. The circumstances of his death – he disappeared during an attempt to cross the Atlantic in a small sailboat whilst working on the piece In Search of the Miraculous – further contribute to the mystique that surrounds him. He was an artist who faced the ultimate consequences of his inquiries into the meaning and finite nature of life.
