Jonathan van Doornum

Jonathan van Doornum visualizes inter-human contact by referring to modern techniques, historical objects and traditional customs. His sculptures explore the invisible world of objects that are sending and receiving. “The works I make are elaborate structures which link existing principles and new stories. These stories are not always directly readable. I try to convince a viewer to look twice by luring them with the work’s physical appearance. I am translating carefully selected cultural and historical references into form and imagination” As a result, he slowly creates works that make cross-references in time and space. Materiality and craftsmanship are important aspects to him, he makes most of the sculptural parts himself. Therefore his making process has slowly evolved into a sophisticated thinking process with materials.
