Teun Vonk

Teun Vonk is a photographer and video artist.

In his work Teun Vonk observes how a group affects an individual. He explores different groups, ranging from teams to clubs to communities. Both during his working process and in the visual result, the continuous interaction between the group and the individual, as well as the interaction between the visual director and the subject, play an influential role. Vonk records his subjects noticeably neutral. His objective is not so much to portray but rather to conduct a visual analysis. In this visual analysis, the camera and the eventual framing of images are his instruments. As images in motion, the individual body and that of the group are taken into account as dynamic studies of form. They abstract real behavior and function as mirrors to our minds. The result is a layered combination of an abstract imagery that indirectly represents, and a figurative portrayal that directly depicts. This, in sum, constitutes a rise of individual identification, both physically and playful, while simultaneously analytic and intriguing.
