March 20: Krijn de Koning (Visual Artist, Amsterdam): Own work
The installations of Krijn de Koning are build in a large veriety of places. It diverces from museums and Gallerys, to more alternative and Artist run places, to some large works in an architectural and public enviroment. All his works deal with the idea of architecture and place, wether it is that the work itself is an accesible unit that functions as a sort of watch-out platform on its surrounding, or that the the work intervenes directly on a one-to-one base with the given space where it is built in. Most of the works are temporary site-specific interventions that profoundly chanche the way that a visitor perceives the place. It turns around, breaks through, and sometimes only points out the elements that condition the visitor on the place that he is in. It is in the combination of abstract thinking and an intuitive mind that Krijn de Koning makes his works and achieves to realise spatial and colourfull spaces that are meant to be closely looked at.
