* Haute Talent 2019 *
Filled with vivid light and colour, masculine symbols, sex and escapism, the work of Joost Termeer is based on the way we read, consume and use images. Taking inspiration from mass tourism and consumption, advertisements and hyperreality, he combines images form travels to Southern-European countries with studio images and collages made afterwards – all of them are reconstructions of memories and close-ups of moments that captivated him during his travels. Though the origin of the images is mostly untraceable, he wants to shake up a feeling of recognition. He wants the viewer to re-experience, to look again and hopefully look at the world in a different way.
Termeer graduated from HKU, Utrecht in 2018.
