The nature of my project has never been about boiling anything down, but rather exposing the complexities of human experience; particularly one’s self as subject and the world as object. The ‘self’ and the ‘other’ play a pivotal role as subject matter within my manipulations with language – locating, defining and ultimately obscuring any kind of singular ‘meaning’ behind or beneath the surfaces of the world. These games (self imploding sentences, misreadings , backfirings revisions, second thoughts etc.) offer access to the hope for authentic – if flawed – communication while confronting the indeterminacy of language, both literary and abstract. I use these self-conscious devices for a ‘defamiliarizing’ effect. Text allows the work to maintain a narrative thread while maintaining an allegiance to non-figurative imagery. I play the role of scavenger when it comes to the texts I use. I think of these selected fragments as a kind of linguistic ‘road kill’ – skeletons on which to hang the material of the painting. I am engaged with texts that evoke a certain prickliness or an emotional angle that is slightly askew, with an emphasis on themes rooted in an emotional or psychological realm rather than intellect. Sensation overides thought, just as fantasy takes the place of history. Statement

Track: Then
Release: Two Point Discrimination
Composer: Goldmund / Keith Kennif / Helios

Muziektelevisie is a Groningen-based film duo consisting of Jonathan Sterkenburg and Klaas de Vries. Their filming style is characterized by slightly surrealistic manipulations and a nostalgic undertone. Inspired by many Scandinavian and other obscure movies, their narrative preference has developed towards a more implicit and demure way of story-telling. Aloof and sorcerous atmospheres, deceiving the viewer into getting lost in their own tales, which will be recreated endlessly.

“I have been a huge admirer of infrared photography for a very long time. Infrared photography is based on the fact that image sensors in camera’s (ccd’s) can see a wider light spectrum than the human eye can. To correct this, an infrared blocking filter is placed right in front of the image sensor in most digital camera’s. I have removed this filter in my camera recently, which was quite a risky operation. If you then use an infrared filter and do a lot of post processing, you end up with footage that almost looks like from another world. The most obvious characteristic is that all green vegetation becomes white, or very light at least. Another thing I like is that you get a much bigger lens-flare and the sun seems much brighter. Unfortunately it turned out I can’t do color infrared with my 3ccd camera, but in duotone it still looks quite nice, I think…” – Jonathan Sterkenburg
