Anne de Vries
Through sculpture, video and installation Berlin based Dutch artist Anne De Vries (b. 1977) investigates the impact of developing technologies upon human perception and experience of the world. Central to his practice are notions of 'the individual’ inside mass collectivity of 'pluralist culture’. His work attempts to give form and purpose to our hyper connected world and reveals it as information driven reality where digital technologies are embedded in everyday life and feed a human desire to surpass the limitations of body and mind.
The exhibition follows Anne de Vries’ recent solo exhibition ‘E-Merge’ at Foam Museum Amsterdam (2015), and 'Deep Screen’ at Parc Saint Léger,France (2015). Selected group exhibitions include ‘Still/Life’ at Three Shadows Museum, Beijing (2014), and ‘It aint whatcha write, it’s the way atcha write it’ at Manifesta Foundation, Amsterdam (2014) ‘Superficial Hygiene’ at De Hallen (2014), ‘The Dark Cube’ at Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2012), ‘Brands – Concept/Affect/Modularity’ at Salts Basel (2014) and ‘The Moving Museum’ in Istanbul (2014).
