Statement

Thijs Ebbe Fokkens (1981) was born in Groningen, Holland and currently lives and works in The Hague. In his combinations of installations, photographs and drawings he evaluates desires for - and promises of - understanding, oversight and truth. His work can be read as a story with multiple plot lines and with the suggestion of time, of a beginning and an end. In it the contours of a mythical utopian place arise that promises the existence of an ideal perspective to perceive the world. Fokkens studied at the St.Joost Academy in Breda and is co-founder of the artists initiative Location Z, based in The Hague. Recent exhibitions include The Meeting of the Eye @ Art Rotterdam, For Real @ 38CC Delft, The Aleph @ Kunsthal KAdE Amersfoort and Hole in One @ Kunstverein Leverkusen.
