Marjan Teeuwen Biography

In her aptly titled body of work, Destroyed House, Dutch artist MarjanTeeuwen reclaims the wreckage of abandoned buildings assembling each fragment in painstakingly detailed installations, set within the original structures. These temporary living artworks are present for their surrounding community to experience, but they ultimately exist only through the carefully composed photographs which Teeuwen captures for posterity with her large-format camera. Her images illuminate the precarious balance of the power of destruction with the constructive implications of order and function. Her first solo show with Bruce Silverstein Gallery was held in early 2018.
