Flatland welcomes Jasper de Beijer
February 1, 2019
Flatland is delighted that Dutch artist Jasper de Beijer joins Flatland. De Beijer is seen as a leading figure of expanding the language of photography. The gallery will commence European representation of all his work.
Since he graduated in 1997, De Beijer has been celebrated for his scale scenes and carefully assembled tableaux as material for his photographic images. He has since completed a total of 14 projects, each of them based upon either numerous reports of explorers, anthropologists and documentary filmmakers, or a study of landscape drawings, etchings and engravings from Dutch masters like Hercules Seghers, Jacob van Ruisdael, Rembrandt van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh; or his projects are based on the objects from the collection of ethnographic musea mixed with video-gametechnology to create a virtual environment which is somewhere between a museum, a theatre and a photo archive. In 2018 De Beijer finished a six month residency at Wiels, Brussels, where he has done research on the Africa museum in Tervuren. In 2019 his work was exhibited at Untitled Art Fair San Francisco and in 2019 WIELS will host a large solo show of his works. In 2020 his work will be exhibited at the Centre Photographique Rouen, France in 2020.
De Beijer is relentlessly innovative and Flatland is honored to welcome him in the gallery.
