Jasper De Beijer - Critical Mass
|Arnoud van Aalst; Merel Bem; Diana Wind

The world Jasper de Beijer presents to us through his photographic works is simultaneously fascinating, familiar, and disconcerting. His work is about the process of looking, seeing, and interpreting. An observer might first see a historical image, but then later realise it is a photograph of a paper model. The viewer is swept into a narrative that is more than a photograph, and feels the need to respond in some way. But how? This is precisely the question the artist is asking: Do you really know what you are seeing? His publication ‘Critical Mass’ appears in conjunction with an exhibition at Museum Rijswijk. With text contributions by Arnoud van Aalst, Diana Wind, and Merel Bem.
