Daan Couzijn is a conceptual and interdisciplinary artist. Central to his artistic practice is the romantic desire for - and the questioning of - authenticity. He uses a range of media and techniques to express his ideas; from sculpture and painting to video and installation. Drawing inspiration from various sources, including philosophy, literature, visual culture, he frequently incorporates found objects, materials and images into his work.
Couzijn doesn't regard the artwork as an end point, but as a simple moment in an infinite network of contributions. Refusing any form of "source-hypocrisy", he embraces all ideas as second-hand, consciously and unconsciously drawn from a million outside sources. By combining different contextual elements, he creates new meanings and narratives that speak to the complexities of contemporary life.
