Francis Boeske Projects is representing a small group of artists with the aim to organize within the regular exhibition programme special projects with either curators, galleries and artists.
For UNSEEN 2016, Francis Boeske Projects is proud to propose a collaboration with Peer Veneman.
Peer Veneman ( 1952, Eindhoven) is known from 1980 as a sculptor. His colourful artworks filled in the space between figurative and abstract. A constant factor throughout his oeuvre is the subsequently refusal to do the same thing twice. Not only are the formal aspects of visual art questioned by Veneman, his artistic intentions undergo the same process as well.
One year ago Peer Veneman started to use the medium photography to create a new series of works.
Veneman projects slides from his archive into the three dimensional, physical space of his studio. Through the projection on unequal surfaces and its surroundings both are becoming one new image. Through Venemans eyes; the final photo is being 'rebuild'.
At Unseen we would like to focus on the most recent series; The Alpine landscapes These photo works are the result of his use of chemicals directly on the diapositive film, that he subsequently projects and rephotographs.
Using found footage diapostive film, Himalayan salt, sugar, soap, olive oil and ink, Veneman creates an apocalyptic atmosphere that expresses anxiety and beauty at the same time.
A quote of Peer Veneman about this new series:
“Another way of working with the inexhaustible source of photographed images….”
