The works of visual artist Thomas Kuijpers (1985, NL) revolve around the way images and text are used to create a narrative about true events, and how they influence our perception. His works mostly originate from recent happenings, questioning the value of an image and its contemporary use.

Each of Kuijpers’ projects starts with a thorough investigation, collecting all sorts of material, about a particular incident. From here a search starts for a theme, a fragment or a small metaphor that unravels how the story has been told. This collection of research materials form the basis of a new work, and often become part of the work itself. From this point on anything can happen; the form is always subject to the concept. Sometimes the work develops into a novel, other times a movie, a wearable, or a drawing. 
By simply pointing out inconsistencies in a story and errors in the accompanying imagery, or by making direct, critical visual comments on the way a story is brought to us, Kuijpers offers an alternative view of stories and images.

In 2015 Kuijpers received a grant from the Creative Industries Fund and was awarded the AG Art Award. In the past few years he has presented his work in venues like Art Weekender (Bristol), Incubarte 7 (Valencia), B.A.D. (Brussel), RAM Foundation (Rotterdam) and Galerie Pennings (Eindhoven). He also exhibited his work in renowned places like Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven), MASP (Sao Paulo), Kunsthal (Rotterdam), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Foam (Amsterdam) and Krakow Photmonth Festival 2016.
