For CUT magazine about art Lee McDonald made the above edition, all handmade. He seldom makes a work that is not tested by himself. Here, the owner of the multiple may test the parachute by dipping the tea bag in a glass of warm water to give it a bit of weight before throwing it into the air to see what happens. This means that basically 34 tests could be run by the owners, hence its title “Fragmented Test 2645”.

“Miks beelden zijn vaak nogal hermetisch waardoor ze iets zelfingenomens krijgen, maar bij dit werk is dat minder het geval. Op en onder een tafel staan een groot aantal voorwerpen: een enorm blik tonijn, een glazen potje met afgeknipte nagels, een papieren zak met een blikje Budweiser-bier. De titel maakt dat je het beeld gemakkelijk voor je ziet: het nagelpotje staande op het koffieplankje naast het raam – wie zou dat hebben achtergelaten en waarom? De groene legertas vol flessen azijn tegenover je op de lege bank in de trein naar Schiphol.” Hans den Hartog Jager, ‘De Utrechtse School’, NRC Handelsblad, 14 februari 1997.

Hans Koetsier initially worked in advertising and started painting in 1962. He painted figures and fragments of these and incorporated them into serigraphs. At the end of the sixties, he made his first blobby balloon-like sculptures and gradually the idea became more and more important. He developed into a conceptual artist with always a soft spot for typography and ideas written down as ideas. Director of Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam Wim Beeren suggested to him to advertise and in 1969 he placed his first series of advertisements with texts in national newspapers Het Parool, NRC Handelsblad, Art Forum (USA), Kunst (Bundesrepublik Deutschland) Studio International (UK) and on the front page of Dutch weekly magazine Vrij Nederland under the title ‘Random Art / Probability Art’.

Hans Koetsier has never shared his ideas within the Fluxus or Provo movement. Yet the fact cannot be denied that he had comparable autonomous thinking and acting. In the Netherlands Koetsier became known for unusual high-profile plans. For example, he once suggested establishing a national holiday, the ‘Day of Inspiration’, starting on Whit Monday 1980. The Dutch Prime Minister Van Agt was against the idea, because it would suggest that in the Netherlands there was a “fairly general lethargy”, which he said was not the case.
In Friesland, which according to Koetsier would be the last oasis left in the middle of industrialization, Koetsier wanted to build a watchtower in a place where the view around would still be intact.

Hans Koetsier became best known for placing advertisements in weekly magazine Vrij Nederland, which, in addition to short-sighted texts, often had an algebraic or enigmatic appearance.
