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, our substantive alienation in relation to our immediate surroundings and their functionality becomes perceptible.
The installations made by Veenhuis develop from logical choices that arise from the intrinsic characteristics of the material. These characteristics also form a binding frame-work and have a direct influence on the available possibilities and the final image.
The meaning of the artworks of Sjimmie Veenhuis often resonate deliberately with the surroundings and context in which they appear.
