Multidisciplinary artist Marijn Brussaard (Amsterdam, 1993) works with performance, (video-)installation, music and sound-design. He graduated in 2014 with a BA in performance at the Amsterdam School of the Arts (Mime department).
Brussaard is a versatile all-rounder – conceptually and musically driven with a strong associative quality. He researches and reflects on the theatrics of modern-day phenomena, and finds that the tension and drama often lie in the inconsistencies and paradoxes of these subjects.
With little regard for convention, Brussaard’s work can be described as form-experiments that are often poetic, humorous or even absurd by nature and that are filled with references out of popular and visual culture. The contrasts between what is real and synthetic or hyperreal are a recurrent theme in his work.
