Bio

Jeroen Hoenselaar (°1981, Middelburg, the Netherlands) is specialised in charcoal/pencil drawings, writing, photography and video. His work has a base in philosophy and science. Nevertheless by sawing at the legs of the standard notions, he repudiates the believe in absolute truths; he makes his work in the uncertainty of scientific findings and the frailty of undiscovered theories. Contemplating on society he searches for new possibilities in our future endeavoring. By trying to crawl under the skin of human kind, Hoenselaar lays small time-bombs which are set to detonate in the past rather than at the time of discovery. Through narrativity he tries to find a storyline in our societal difficulties. This eventuates in three-dimensional portraits of his ideas and worlds.

Jeroen Hoenselaar currently lives and works in Haarlem.
