a world where time seems to have stopped but where something unexpected can happen at any moment
The work of Goof Kloosterman enters the realm of perception. He investigates the way media affects us by using different angles to search for moments in which the effect of media is clearly palpable. He finds traces in, among other things, technical aspects, the human act, image culture or in our collective memory. Towards the end of the process, Kloosterman thinks of ways to reproduce these moments. Every moment asks for a different execution which makes his practice highly versatile.
Kloosterman’s installations are space-filling or test set-ups. In a kind of spatial collage, he combines different pieces to create a new staging that is reminiscent of the theatre. Through a minimal use of colour and a subtle light play, Kloosterman confronts the spectator with a world where time seems to have stopped but where something unexpected can happen at any moment.
The work seems to vaguely link to something familiar, to something you have seen before. Kloosterman takes us to the exact point where we are almost able to trace it back. He searches for the area where we simultaneously know and not know what we are looking at, and thus creates space for the spectator to fill in the blanks.
