Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan

Lonnie van Brummelen and Siebren de Haan work together since 2002, producing 16mm and 35mm film installations that explore cultural and geopolitical landscapes like Europe’s borders (Grossraum, 2005), sites of resource production and global trade and (Monument of Sugar, 2007, Episode of the Sea, 2013), the (non) sites of cultural heritage (Monument to Another Man’s Fatherland, 2008 and subi dura a rudibus, 2010). Their film images are often countered by textual supplements that disclose the contingency of their field work. Performing a drifting studio practice, they are involved in all aspects of production from the handling of the camera, to montage, and the design of their artist publications. Van Brummelen is currently a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam and the HKU. She’s a tutor at HKU and a regular visiting professor at diverse Master programs.

Venues where their works have been shown include Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Kunsthaus Zürich; Argos, Brussels; SMBA and De Appel Amsterdam; CCA Vilnius; the Shanghai and Guangju Biennials; IAC Villeurbanne, France. Their work is included in public collections of Les Abattoirs, Toulouse; MUDAM Luxembourg; FRAC Marseille; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Julia Stoschek Collection, Düsseldorf; Hoffmann Sammlung, Berlin; Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
