JAK BEEMSTERBOER


  • In zijn collages verkent Jak Beemsterboer (Alkmaar, 1969) figuratieve genres uit de beeldende kunst zoals portretten, landschappen en stillevens. Voor zijn collages gebruikt hij reclamefoto’s uit hedendaagse tijdschriften, vol verwijzingen naar o.a. het lichaam, mode, architectuur en actualiteit. Door deze foto’s te bewerken en te manipuleren ontstaan nieuwe beelden die vervreemdend en herkenbaar, dromerig en realistisch tegelijkertijd zijn.

OVER DE KUNSTENAAR / ABOUT THE ARTIST


Jak Beemsterboer (Alkmaar, 1969) studeerde audiovisueel, grafisch ontwerp en binnenhuisarchitectuur aan de Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. In zijn collages verkent Beemsterboer figuratieve genres uit de beeldende kunst zoals portretten, landschappen en stillevens. Hierin stelt hij steeds de persoon centraal. Zo refereert zijn landschapsserie ‘Missing’ (2012 - heden) naar vermiste en gemiste personen, door het letterlijke of figuurlijke residu wat zij hebben achtergelaten te verbeelden. De personen in het werk van Beemsterboer zijn niet meteen te duiden: ze zijn zowel verleidelijk als afstotend, vaak zowel man als vrouw. Zijn portretten doen denken aan collages van de Britse kunstenaar John Stezaker, die oude foto’s van glamoreuze filmsterren combineert tot een verontrustend nieuw geheel. Beemsterboer gebruikt echter geen beeldmateriaal uit het verleden, maar reclamefoto’s uit hedendaagse tijdschriften, vol verwijzingen naar o.a. het lichaam, mode, architectuur en actualiteit. Door deze foto’s te bewerken en te manipuleren ontstaan nieuwe beelden die vervreemdend en herkenbaar, dromerig en realistisch tegelijkertijd zijn.

Jak Beemsterboer (Alkmaar, 1969) studied audiovisual arts, graphic design and interior architecture at the Rietveld art academy in Amsterdam. In his collages he explores well-known figurative art genres such as portraits, landscapes and still-lives. In his work, the person always takes centre stage. For example in his landscape series ‘Missing’ (2012 - ongoing), Beemsterboer refers to missing and missed persons by rendering the literal or figurative residue they left behind. The people in his work are not easy to interpret: they are both attractive and repulsive, often both man and woman. His portraits are reminiscent of some collages by the British artist John Stezaker, who combines old photographs of glamorous film stars to create a new, disquieting image. However, Beemsterboer does not use material from the past, but rather photographs taken from contemporary magazines, full of references to the body, fashion, architecture and current affairs. By adjusting and manipulating these photographs he creates new images that are both alienating and recognizable, dreamlike and realistic at the same time.
