Dirk Zoete puts his imagination on stage. He presents his models of thinking about the world and people on stages and in sets that are part of his work. He directs changing scenes with a slightly absurd company of characters, animals and their attributes. In both his drawings and his spatial works, the emphasis is on the surface: the figures are flat, schematic and inhabit frontal spaces. They function as the signs in Zoete’s playful artistic language.
