in paradiso version 1,2,3 & 4

In 2018/2019 Bart Drost embroidered 22 jumpsuits. With the naked boys in posh or not-post poses, who have been accompanying him for years - starting at the show boom blauw bas in 1985 - as a model as a kind of stigma on clothing:

                    "Ah sir, you can do something to me. Even though you will never talk about it, we all know that as a boy you also did these things with all the feelings that could have belonged to it. "

In 2018 he embroidered 11 khaki-colored jumpsuits, which were exhibited under the name 'XL' , in 2019 he added 11 navy blue jumpsuits. With the same boy figures on it. They always form a pair. Together they form a whole. They belong together. They dance quietly, spin their laps. They are touchable. Or are they not? They will find their way. Each time in a different environment, they will always have a different effect under the name 'in paradiso', evoking experience. Until they reach their final destination ...
