Project ZuiderBurg – Food For Thought

by our Editors in Theatre, Art & Expo , 18 oktober 2015

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

The individuals behind Project ZuiderBurg are photoshop-artist Gabriel Batenburg and photographer René Zuiderveld. Although they were already connected through Facebook, they actually met for the first time in the streets in the center of Amsterdam.

One was on his bicycle, the other just walking by. Subsequent to their meeting they realized that it would be difficult to not work together. Their shared view on imagery, their minds occupied by similar ideas in regards to fetish depictions connected them strongly.

Together Batenburg and Zuiderveld create photographic realities with a strong theatrical character. At times mysterious, sometime humorous and more than often magical and theatrical.

In close cooperation with their models, Project ZuiderBurg creates images that always place the human being in the center. Their work showing an aspect of eroticism that is mostly considered as part of an underground scene and often also a subversive aspect of male eroticism. Elements that have given ZuiderBurg’s photographs a clearly recognizable signature, and quickly earned them invitations to exhibit these works.

ZuiderBurg’s primary objective in creating its work though is a close collaboration with their models. Through this process, it is cultivating imagery that invites viewers to finish what they see by using their own fantasy.

Opening exposition:
Wednesday October 21, 2015 – 22:00-24:00.

Getto, Warmoesstraat 51, Amsterdam
