Pieter Paul Pothoven


Ultramarin Presentation - Taken at Pecha Kucha Night Amsterdam #12 at Mediamatic. Raphael Rehbach

Pieter Paul Pothoven’s artistic work comprises installation, sculpture and photography, and also includes different forms of writing. An interest in material cultures pervades all projects and connects them in both theoretical and visceral ways. In his work, he searches for alternative ways of engaging with the past through study of historical sites, artifacts and resources, in order to mediate new relationships with history often based on their potential use-value in the present. Recent exhibitions include: 'Sunsets never looked as stunning as through the haze of factory sooth', Jan van Eyck, Maastricht (NL); 'Territorial Drift', Garage, Rotterdam (NL); 'Listen to the Stones, think like a mountain', Tatjana Pieters, Ghent (BE); 'Lapis Lazuli from Serr-i-Sang', PuntWG, Amsterdam (NL). pieterpaulpothoven.com
