“I create compositions in which I question the communicative behavior of existing and available forms and objects that surround us in daily life. I my compositions I am looking for maximum transformations within minimum adjustements of the materials I use.“
Sjimmie Veenhuis (1984) makes installations in which he uses existing materials in their original form. Through the reinterpretation of concrete and recognisable visual elements of the material itself, the function of the substantive alienation in relation to our immediate surroundings becomes perceptible.
The installations made by Sjimmie Veenhuis are developed from logical choices that arise from the intrinsic characteristics of the material. These characteristics also form a binding framework and thus have a direct influence on the available possibilities and the final image. (text: Karlijn Vermeij)
