Bas Oussoren presents humorous situations that reinterpret the banality of the everyday. In his works the spectator always appears late to the party; the story has already been told or the punchline already delivered. This way, Oussoren undermines the clear distinction between fiction and reality, dropping the spectator between the material residues of a fictional situation. The artist makes his own world with internal logics and humour as building blocks. But while the humour seems personal at first, it also requires our collective understanding in order to be funny.
