Disciplines: Installatiekunstenaar, Mixed media/interdisciplinair kunstenaar, Performancekunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

The common thread to my performance-based practice is a deconstruction of the normative in history making as well as cultural and social norms. Projects can entail installations, discussions, gatherings, workshops, performances, drawings, text or video works—in which there is an emphasis on exchange, sharing and mediating different thoughts or opinions. The context of other voices, beliefs, processes or narratives within his very personal works, allows for alternatives to our (collective) reality. A reality beyond the pattern of expectations, biases and stigmas made evident through investigative and often collaborative projects. Motivation for a project originates in the friction surrounding a particular issue or topic, picked up for instance from hearsay on the streets or from sensible tensions online/offline. Through immersive and participative research, my own sensibility and sense of justice acts as a tool to experience various perspectives and to gain a wholesome point-of-view. Research results never lead to a univocal presentation, but rather to projects lingering between installation and performance. In a hopeful criticality to everyday life, I attempt to reconcile the contemporary with the nostalgic, the local with the global, progress with tradition and the explainable with the merely sensible.
