Martijn Hendriks

Work from his oeuvre.

There is a good interview here.

“Martijn Hendriks’s videos, sculptures, and installations often involve seemingly unproductive gestures. Exploring how such unproductive acts like displacements, mistranslation, removals, withholding things, obstructions, overdoing things, repetition, mismatchings, and attempts at impossible or redundant tasks may become productive, a common thread in his work is the possibility of transformation, or how one cultural object or gesture may turn into another. He often uses any materials available, ranging from found images, forms and references culled from art historical sources, to existing objects, texts, film and video footage, Google image searches and viral videos downloaded from the internet.” – Martijn Hendriks
