Collection: LORENA VAN BUNNINGEN

Lorena van Bunningen is a visual artist based in Rotterdam. She has a bachelor of photography from the Royal academy of Arts in The Hague and is a Piket Art prize-winner. In 2016 she did a residency in Colombia and received the grant for emerging artist in 2018 from the Mondriaan Fund. Her work has already been exhibited in several countries and there are many more to come!

She works mainly with photography and sees herself as a photographic poet, inspired by the beauty of daily life.

“My research begins looking at reality, at the tangible world. I creates photographic still lifes that consist of everyday objects; a rack, colored paper, a tube or a rubber band. In my studio I investigates the relationships between the things that I collect. I try to create a “movement” in which I am always searching for a composition based on the suspense between the displays elements and their balance. I am always looking for a stillness of reality. A tribute to the everyday. My work balances on the border of photography and sculpture. Even though my work always results in a photograph, the sculptural element of building and working with collected materials is a very big part of my practice. For AMMA I created two diptych’s from a photo series that I created last year: photographs I made of silhouettes from trees. Consciousness and sustainability for me is very important. In my daily life I try to live responsibly. Luckily the work I make and the materials I use are (unconsciously) very green, since I like to use found objects that I collect or I photograph a lot of things from daily life, like the Tree series. My work is very often a photograph, so the advantage is that it can be produced on demand.”
