Introducing the Artist, Martijn Veldhoen NL, 2007

Martijn Veldhoen (1962, Amsterdam) studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie from 1979 till 1984. Since the mid-1980s he has been active in many multidisciplinary projects involving music, sculpture and installations, performances, video and later also film. His work focuses on the human condition and on philosophical questions about life and contemporary society – gender, progress and technology, love and relationships; his most recent films are short and poetic film loops in which the viewer is taken ‘adrift’ through a brief narration or reflection on reality. Veldhoen’s work has been exhibited internationally and has received several awards and nominations. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
