Lennart de Neef
Within his practice, Lennart de Neef is involved in a long-term visual research in which he investigates the conflict between a virtually designed “hyper reality” and the way in which this virtual world is physically expressed. Playing with this idea by, for example, processing wood in such a way that it looks as if it were ceramic tiles, he twists our perception. For Unfair™ De Neef was inspired by the artificial world of film sets. He started developing objects that could come from warehouses combined with objects of film sets of the past. Many refer to images from the public space; yet seem to reflect a public space from an alternate reality.
Lennart de Neef (1990) lives and works in Utrecht, The Netherlands. He graduated from HKU, Utrecht and received the ‘Excellentie’ Scholarship of the HKU upon graduating. He has taken part in the course Art & Politics at BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, in Utrecht and currently acts as guest teacher at the HKU. De Neef has published multiple books and has had numerous groups shows and solo shows at art spaces like De Aanschouw in Rotterdam, Kunstliefde Utrecht and Motel Spatie in Arnhem.
