Anneleen Steenbergen

Anneleen Steenbergen explores the possibilities (and limits) of language and how this extends with human movements from everyday reality into real space and time. She observes the back and forth of human motions, actions and expressions and tries to look how they perform and expose themselves during undetermined moments/places. Ranging from miniscule to monumental - the smallest elements of unrest, shame,… to the most exaggerated reactions of frustration – will be reconstructed into formally sighted, yet subjective descriptions.

Through spoken and written words she intensifies the impermanent motions into abstract and intimate situations. Whereby typical outer features make place for individual narratives.

Her work is a writing in space (and time) to trace the invincible gap between thought, perception and experience. It’s a balancing act of how applying herself to the observed and how to render a sensitive, conscious, yet universal portrait of herself, the observed and the spectator.

Descriptions, audiovisual installations, one-to-one performances come together to achieve a neutralized depiction about the way we act and function in time and spaces/places.
