Artist statement

Rather than a reductive inquiry into the essential characteristics of his work, Wouter van der Laan is interested in its multiplicity, celebrating confusion, doubt, and entanglement as generative forces. His practice moves nomadically through different environments and situations, where it finds moments of connection. Through processes of re-enactment, reproduction and close study, he seeks to open up to and internalise new and various familiarities that act through him as phantom limbs. What emerges is an organically growing body of work that lives, morphs, and connects through various times and situations, provoking a state of continuous becoming.
