Peter De Meyer
Born Antwerp, Belgium 1981
Peter De Meyer is a close observer of his daily environment. He examines (found) objects to place them in an unexpected context in order to subtly deconstruct and transform them. With (often extremely) minimal interventions he tries to produce a maximal effect. The result of these delocalizations and deformations is sober, but never easy. Peter De Meyerâ€™s work plays with the idea that used objects carry a long history and evoke a range of associations, both in the individual and collective memory. In this way it refers to the idea of transitoriness. In addition, it distorts the familiar relationship between subject and object and invites the spectator to look and experience differently.
