Item description for Dutch Dare: Contemporary Photography from the Netherlands by Frits Gierstberg, Hans Van Der Meer, Marnix Goossens, Gitta Luiten & Gerco de Ruijter...
Tulips, cheese and clogs are put on notice in this survey of contemporary Dutch photography. Gerco de Ruijter hangs his camera on a kite to make strange, abstract landscapes. Marnix Goosens entangles the viewer's gaze in thickets and blocks it with tree trunks rather than presenting the flat panoramas of his Flemish predecessors. Roy Villevoye investigates the colonial past in stills, films and installations on the people of New Guinea. A magazine, Useful Photography, earns its place among artists by lovingly cataloguing vernacular and commercial images. Dutch Dare also includes work by Hans van der Meer, Elspeth Diederix, Gertjan Kocken, Julika Rudelius, Jaap Scheren, Anouk Kruithof, Martine Stig, Viviane Sassen and Marike Schuurman.
