Ten Haaf Projects, Amsterdam
Ten Haaf Projects is pleased to present work by Peer Vink at VOLTA Basel 2019. The Dutch born artist who graduated from the art academy last year will construct a site-specific installation.
Peer Vink who sometimes goes by his alter ego Perry will show paintings, sculptures and works on paper. The inspiration for the name Perry comes from the erotic ‘’leaked’’ video with Paris Hilton, One Night in Paris. For the artist the video was the starting point of the society we are living in now: a hedonistic, individual and self-loving society.
Vink presentation of the site-specific installation is a visual explosion. Similar to an aggressive advertisement, the display method is right in your face and over the top. While his work as a whole Gesamtkunstwerk can be like a volcanic eruption, his individual works are all aesthetic and poetic. They feature abstract and figurative elements, and often tell a story about Vink’s experiences and observations.
On Volta Basel 2019 we will presents the artist new sculptures, made out of ceramic and wood. Vink’s mid size canvases will be on display too. He will design wallpaper what will cover the walls of the booth. He wants to make a statement with this presentation: the importance of art being visual rather than just conceptual
Peer Vink, born in 1990 in Arnhem, lives and works in Nijmegen. He graduated in 2018 from the art academy Sint Joost in Den Bosch.
