In his early career Teun Vonk (1986, Uden) focused on photography and video. Group dynamics and how a group affects an individual were his main topics, as well as the interaction between the visual director, himself, and the subject. Vonk used the camera as a means of exercising power, used it to create a situation and register the spontaneous reactions of the participants.
Currently, Vonk has a radically different direction in his approach to this subject: he creates art installations that focus on individual physical experience. Following a personal experience during a residency in Shanghai, his own body and that of the viewer/participant are his focus point. This has also shaped Vonks daily practice: instead of working primarily from behind a desk, Vonk focuses on the process of making and uses his studio as playground, test site and production area.
Teun Vonk has shown his work at Ars Electronica, FILE Brazil, STRP Biennial Eindhoven, Art Rotterdam, Chronus Art Center Shanghai, EYE Amsterdam and CTM Festival Berlin.To Artist
