Remco Torenbosch

The work of Remco Torenbosch (1982) is rather simple in its ‘conceptual complexity’: He turns plate material into a public platform by using his pieces as a model for gathering points like pavilions, public squares or memorial stages. Creating these extremely reduced three-dimensional pieces from ‘poor’ material based on the industrial principles of modular reduction and standardization in an effort to limit individuality in his work, he aspired to a clear, hard realism of form, production, distribution and reception. These aspects included the variability of material, participation in production by dialogue and the inclusion of a specific situation based on a social context.
