By removing materials from their comfortable surroundings and placing them in a new, unfamiliar context, Pim Leenen’s work hopes to transform and create function and meaning.
A photographer who graduated from the School for the Arts in Utrecht, his dissembling and considered placement of materials has been a constant.
Light Sculptures is one such example of this constant and, with line, light and lack of it, he manages to create an immersive, compelling set of images. “What does empty space look like?” Leenen questions. “How do we perceive an empty space if there are no objects in that space to reveal its size? Is it possible to capture empty space in a photograph? It was these questions I tried to answer during the creation of the Light Sculptures.”
