Eggs and Rarities - Paul Kooiker

23 November - 19 January at tegenboschvanvreden
Due to a planned renovation, the gallery will be closed from 19 December to 8 January

What is the connection between images of high-heeled shoes, footprints in the snow, an older woman and a young girl climbing the stairs, cars at a crossroads, a family portrait, eggs, and female nudes?

In Eggs and Rarities, Paul Kooiker questions the relationship between observer and observed, artist and model. He can be considered an installation artist rather than a photographer, and never strives for the ‘perfect' photographic image. Just like his major solo exhibition in FoMu Antwerp last summer, ‘Eggs and Rarities’ shows that Kooiker increasingly allows the personal to creep into his work. Intimate private photographs break through the seemingly objective approach so that public and private space spill over into each other.
