Jansen, Michiel

Sculpture / Installation

The current practice of Michiel Jansen can be divided in two parts; his site specific projects and his studio work. All the works have to do with space, boundaries, volume and materializing all of this. With references to architecture and the use of different colours, shapes, materials and construction methods, the works of Jansen have a great formalistic character.

“Every space already contains its own sculpture or installation. All I have to do is make it visual by indicate its boundaries and position by using the right materials, surfaces and construction.”

Planned projects and exhibitions

What does a site specific installation artist in his studio?
After last years presentation of my large site specific installations, I will give a new insight to my artist practice: the things I do in my studio.
I usually don’t make models of my installations or studies before and mainly work and develop ideas on site. But what do is there to do in my studio?
Years ago I started with material research in my studio, making sketches and collages. Experimenting with properties of materials; colors, thickness, surface etc. This as preparation or for installations and creating an archive with material properties for myself. These studies have grown into autonomous works; mainly collages, sculptures and sometimes adjustable installations.
