Reassembling and attributing short performative actions to the materials he finds while roaming in their studio, he creates a new perspective on the existing works. Building on each other’s ideas, an intimate fusion of artistic practices takes place – challenging traditional notions of ownership and authorship.
Ton Zwerver (1951, Amsterdam) is a sculptor, photographer and performance artist. Everyday objects often form the basis for his sculptural work. Using his body as a canvas, carefully composed constellations take shape. Everyday movements take on an alienating dimension due to the repetitive nature of his performance.
