Joep Vossebeld (1989 Maastricht, NL) “Joep Vossebeld has a sharp eye for the inevitable absurdity, tragedy and irony of all our everyday lives. He translates what he sees and experiences into sculptures, photos and drawings. These may be shown separately, or in changing or changeable combinations without a loss of the penetrating lightness of observation. On the basis of this work, he also produces meticulously compiled booklets with texts and fragments of his writing. His manner of seeing, working and writing recall those of the Swiss author Robert Walser, who wrote that the possibility of enjoying the better side of life must be fought for with vigour; or, as Joep Vossebeld does, fought for by exposing it in a new light.”
