Wouter Venema (Groningen, 1985) - CV
The feeling of simultaneity – the layering of people, place and time – is a central theme in the oeuvre of Wouter Venema (Groningen, 1985). It creates a framework to consider subjects like identity and displacement. The literal occupation of multiple points of view is important for this, for example the combination of a glass relief and a drawing. Especially in recent work, Venema has magnified this and wishes to offer counterbalance for a monolithic point of view. Venema doesn’t view his work as a sequence of loose projects, but rather as one work which slowly expands like a web.
