Ronald van der Meijs: A Time Capsule of Life

Ronald van der Meijs

Ronald van der Meijs is a Dutch artist.

Ronald van der Meijs (1966) lives and works in Amsterdam. He develops location based sound installations that show how we relate to nature in our technocratic society. These technical structures are a reflection on the location and its history. A field of tension is being created where acceptance plays a major part by creating a dialogue between nature and technology or nature versus culture. Unpredictable and slow natural processes control the work and form a generative concept of sound, space and time.

His recent sound performances with inflatable cell structures are based on the research of creating a sound and sculptural dialogue with the audience created by the grow and decay of the installation structures. The aim is to generate a wider experience of the installation object as it makes parallels between the immersive amplified sounds and the slow changes of its identity and atmosphere.

He received the Haarlem Vishal Art Price 2015, was nominated for the Prix Ars Electronica 2017 and shortlisted for the Witteveen & Bos Kunst en Techniek Price 2018. He exhibits around the world such as Centraal Museum Utrecht, DordtYart in Dordrecht, Centro de Arte Complutense Madrid, Verbeke Foundation in Kemzeke, Triënnale New Media Art at National Art Museum Of China Beijing, File in Sao Paulo, Land Art Biennial Mongolia, Sculpture Space in Utica New York, Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana and the ERES Foundation in Munich. He received art commissions of the Dutch Government including a major sculptural assignment for the new HeadQuarters of Europol in The Hague, Netherlands.
